    • I recommend Gerald Nelson.

    • Gerald handled my Child Custody matter.

    I am currently working on a name change for my daughter and have filed for sole legal and physical custody Gerald Nelson has been very informative and empathetic. He has already helped me out a lot and our first court date is held in September. Gerald also called me immediately after he had submitted papers to the courthouse!

    Hired Gerald Nelson for a criminal case. Not a good attorney in any regard. Would not recommend him to anyone. Gerald couldn't even defend someone on a traffic ticket let alone a criminal charge! Lucky I got smart and fired him and hired a new attorney that actually worked to get the criminal charge reduced.

    • I do not recommend Gerald Nelson.
    • I hired Gerald more than 3 years ago.
    • Gerald handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I had him represent me (if that’s what you want to call it) on a first offense DUI case. Let me put it to you straight he will do nothing but collect your retainer. He is a lazy plea bargainer and nothing more! He will put no time into your case whatsoever and will not even return a simple phone call.
