Birmingham, AL Family Law Attorneys

A holistic approach to family law.

We created our boutique family law firm, Nolan Byers, PC in March, 2013 with the goal of providing our clients with strong support to deal with what comes next. With a combined twenty years of experience, we have learned that family law matters always involve both an emotional and legal process. We want our clients to feel empowered to face these challenges and address the things they value most. Having seen the negative effects of cookie cutter divorce agreements and one-size-fits-all litigation, Nolan Byers provides a customized approach tailored to the specific needs, goals and interests of the individuals we serve and in every case, we apply our experience and expertise to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients.

Family law is our focus. It's all we do.

Frances Ross Nolan

Frances was inspired to become a lawyer by the struggles of her parents and numerous friends for whom the divorce process was especially challenging. Having studied psychology and social science in college, divorce law provided the perfect marriage of her educational experiences with the opportunity to make a personal difference in the lives of others. Emboldened by the belief that not all clients want a court-driven divorce process, Frances was a moving force in bringing Collaborative Divorce to Alabama.
