Tom Nagel is an exceptionally aggressive and effective attorney. Tom was able to get me a deal, which I consider no less than a miracle. If you have a charge against you I highly recommend you get someone with the legal knowledge and negotiations skills Tom possesses. Tom will work closely with you and push the prosecutor to give you the best deal. I can't put into words how thankful I chose Tom to handel my case, and recommend to anyone else to do the same.
Tom Nagel represented me in my DUI and possession case and have both charges dropped to reckless driving and disorderly conduct. He is very knowledgeable and kept me updated throughout my case. I highly recommend him to anyone!
Mr Nagel really helped advise us with a situation our son had gotten himself into trouble. Sometimes humans make stupid mistakes that didn't hurt anyone but could have and we should have some type of penalty but no for the rest of our life.
Tom was able to let us know the different possible outcomes and what each included so that we could plan to do things like community services hours served in advance to show good faith, place our own penalty for his mistake & be ahead when entering court.
Our day in court was scary but comforting knowing that Mr Nagel was there with us and on our side. The judge was very stern with our son as he should be to "scare him straight" but very insightful & extremely fair. It was definitely the assistance of our attorney that made our end verdict a lot better than we ever expected.
I would HIGHLY recommend Tom Nagel to anyone seeking professional & honest attorney representation.
I walked into the courtroom, sat and watched people lose their licenses left and right, as well as receive ridiculous fines and probation on top of that. These people did not have Tom Nagel as an attorney.
I thought for sure my license was gone, as my tickets were way worse than most cases.
Mr. Nagel told me not to worry, just let him do the talking. He came back with an excellent deal. Not only did I keep my license, he got the charge reduced, and even got one thrown out.
I would recommend Tom Nagel to anyone who is facing a worrisome day in court. He is very knowledgable of the law and your rights, and will fight to provide you with the best represention available in Atlanta.
When I hired Tom Nagel I was on probation and I got in a bar fight. A Sandy Springs detective was leaving cards on my front door asking me to call him. I was afraid I was going to have my probation violated and go to jail.
Tom Nagel called the detective for me. He negotiated a meeting with the detective after my probation end date.
He went to the meeting with me and did all the talking. He knew all the detectives by name. I received a ticket and walked out of the meeting.
He went to court with me. Again he knew everyone at the court house. He knew the prosecutor assigned to my case. The “victim” showed up to court trying to get me in trouble. Mr. Nagel got me off with a nothing but a small fine. I have paid bigger fines for running stop signs.
I would recommend hiring Tom Nagel if you are in trouble with the law. He knows how to navigate the court system to your advantage. Do not try to handle your own defense without an experienced lawyer. The decision to hire Tom Nagel is one of the smartest things I have ever done.
Tom Nagel handled our case with the utmost professionalism. He was there to provide guidance and support each step of the way. He knew the law, the court system, the local attorneys, and navigated through the system to quickly resolve the case. Tom was forthright in his assessment and managed our expectations throughout. We reach a dismissal within the timeline he outlined. I would recommend Mr. Nagel to anyone who needs an experienced attorney.
I hired attorney Nagel to represent me in a DUI case. After doing some research and consulting with others, it seemed inevitable that my case would result in a conviction of DUI. Attorney Nagel assured me that whether or not the results would be in my favor, he would fight until the very last second, which he absolutely did. Not only was my charge reduced, but he was able to get me out of having to do jail time, which typically comes from such a reduction. I am so glad that I read the reviews of others on this site which led me to hire Attorney Nagel to represent me. I couldn't be happier with the results. I don't know that any other lawyer would have fought so hard to have my charges reduced. I am eternally grateful.
I could not have asked for a better attorney. This is very, very unfamiliar territory for me. This is the first time that I needed a criminal defense attorney, and I can say that I picked the right person for the job. From the first phone call to Tom, which was on a Sunday afternoon, I knew he was going to be amazing. During my initial consultation, Tom made me feel at ease and I immediately knew that I was working with a professional with experience. In the end, Tom was able to get my criminal charges dismissed. I am so grateful!
If you are in need of a great attorney, one that will listen, is honest, and will work hard to get you the very best results possible, Tom is definitely the professional for you. I could not have ask for a better attorney and results!
Morality, charisma, and thoroughness are just a few words to sum up Attorney Charles Nagel working performances. I have never had a situation to where I needed representation, and following a few unfortunate situations I found myself sitting idly with a slew of traffic fees, suspended license, and a bench warrant. That’s right a BENCH WARRANT!
I didn’t have the slightest idea of what I needed to do. I called the traffic courts to find out what steps I needed to take to get the situations resolved, and the clerk very bluntly (albeit professionally) advised that I would need to turn myself in and be taken into custody. Then after arraignment I would be able to speak with a judge about my issue. I was terrified! I had never been arrested, and my traffic violations were for tag and insurance violations.
I was beside myself with worry, and I immediately began pounding the keys of my laptop trying to find some answers out on the web. I found a piece written by Mr. Nagal on the do’s and don’ts of resolving traffic issues, so I contacted his office, and after retaining him (for a very reasonable fee mind you) for both cases he not only resolved the bench warrant issue, which did not include me being tossed into the clink, he had my license reinstated and he even had my fines reduced!!!
He is an amazing attorney, and I thank him for his savvy attitude and great attention to detail. Although it only took him a week to get me squared away I certainly felt like a priority. Thank you!!
Attorney Nagel kept me very informed through out the entire process . I had couple of Traffic Violation tickets ( first time offender ), Thomas laid out my options, and explained to me the different angles of approaching my charges. After my meeting, I felt confident that with his experience and wide knowledge ,that my issues will be resolved. In the end, Thomas was very successful in getting the serious charge dismissed and the other two fines reduced. Overall, I am very pleased with the outcome.
