Founded in 1991, Wright S. Walling and Nancy Zalusky Berg's vision was to establish a new type of family law firm that serves the unique interests of each client. Their goal was to not only handle complex legal matters, but also to educate clients and others about alternative methods for resolving legal issues. And, with a reputation built on the principles of creativity, quality work and first-rate service, Walling, Berg & Debele, P.A. has since become Minnesota's largest exclusive family law firm.
Clients can expect excellent representation at WB&D. Our attorneys have specialized expertise in marital dissolutions and post-decree matters, including custody, parenting time, support, modification and enforcement, relocation, child abduction, and property division, as well as all types of adoption, third-party custody, paternity, assisted reproductive technology services (ARTS), same-sex family law matters, child protection matters in juvenile court, domestic abuse and harassment, appeals, and related estate planning, such as prenuptial, postnuptial and cohabitation agreements.
At WB&D, quality representation means comprehensive and cost-effective legal work designed to present the strongest possible case, both factually and legally, in the appropriate forum, whether through negotiation, mediation or focused litigation in court. WB&D attorneys have the necessary experience, network and licensure to resolve jurisdictional disputes involving multiple states, countries and Native American tribes. Our attorneys additionally provide prominent leadership in law and legislation, rule making, legal education and the implementation of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms across the local, national and international family law communities.
WB&D attorneys are zealous advocates who understand the deeply emotional side of legal issues involving families and children. We believe our role continues to be one in which every client is treated with respect and dignity. Our attorneys provide the necessary guidance to effectively navigate both the technicalities under the law and the complex judicial system. We listen, encourage questions and keep clients informed. We strive to keep clients' best interests in the forefront, recognizing that a momentary resolution may not be in a child's or individual's best interest in the long run. Our attorneys partner with clients to reach the best possible outcomes by ensuring that they understand their options and the potential consequences for each. We help clients make difficult decisions in their best interests, giving each an opportunity to move forward with his or her life.
