To those in need of legal assistance, I would like to offer this testimonial on behalf of Chris Nielsen and his team. Last Aug, during a period of poor judgment, I found myself in an unfamiliar situation. For the first time in my life I was in need of a criminal attorney. I asked an attorney who was a friend for a recommendation. Without a moment's hesitation he suggested Chris Nielsen. Upon first being interviewed, it was clear to me that he was direct and had a great understanding of his area of law. Moreover, he didn't try to "sugarcoat" the possible outcomes. Rather, he only promised his best...I have dealt with professionals my entire life and have never been more impressed. The quality of work performed, by him and his staff, was without flaw. He was readily available and eager to respond to my many calls and always seemed to know exactly what was next. The outcome was a big win for both of us. He protected my career, my reputation, and my honor. Long after the case had been to trial, with a successful completion, he was prompt to respond. A small glitch threatened to cause issues for me, and he solved it expediently...Honor...Integrity...Compassion...and Results...that is what we all need. Call Chris Nielsen!

I called Attorney Nielson and was in his office within a couple days discussing my issue. With in 1 week of my first initial visit I was informed what my options were and asked what I would like to have as a punishment. If I had any questions for Attorney Nielsen I was called back that same day with an answer that was fully explained to me. When my court date came Mr. Nielson met me there, explained the proceedings and when I was called up, Attorney Neilson stood up, talked to the judge and we left and I was given what I asked for. If not for Attorney Nielsen, I believe I would have not gotten a fair shake.

Best court appointed lawyer I've ever had. Last year I was being charged with THREE class b felonies, along with numerous misdemeanors & Mr. Nielson got all 3 felonies dropped! I ended up doing only 67 days jail time, which beats over 5years any day! Highly reccomended to anyone facing criminal charges.

I hired Attorney Chris Nielsen in November of 2008 to represent me and challenge a charge of DUI. He laid a solid foundation and preparation for the eventual successful outcome of my case. To call his knowledge of DUI law impressive is an understatement. His confidence and responsiveness put me at ease from day one. I never felt disconnected or in the dark. He answered all my questions in a way that made sense to me; he was candid and thorough in his communications. Given the potential impact a negative result could have had not only on me, but on my family and on my career, I continue to value greatly the fact that I could rely on him and know that he would treat my case as a priority. Other attorneys that I consulted before meeting Attorney Nielson not only were non-responsive, they gave me clear indications that my case would never be a priority to them. I cannot say enough good things about Attorney Nielson, but first and foremost, he will always ensure that his clients know they count.
