    Galveston D.A.'s Office offered 30 years! Found Not Guilty by Jury in Trial! Thank you Tad Nelson!

    April 15, 2012 I was arrested for a DWI. I had a history of DWI convictions. The District Attorney was ruthless. I was on Parole and could not bond out. I went to trial and was found NOT GUILTY on April 2, 2015. Yes, I was found NOT GUILTY after sitting in jail 2-1/2 years. I felt my neck under the boot of an impatient, Byzantine legal bureaucracy of Galveston County. The true blessing and hope was that I was in good hands with Tad Nelson and Amber Spurlock on my side. I was in the conservative court of Judge Lonnie Cox, which is said to favor the State. I was summoned to his chambers and was greeted by an Electric Chair sitting next to the photo of him and his bride. One could not feel any less comfortable. The Galveston Police officer had a story and so did I. Both stories conflicted each other. Tad Nelson listened to every word I had to say and he asked all the right questions. Tad and his team did their research, and did a great job doing so. Thanks to Tad Nelson and his team, we won! I am forever grateful for all the attention he gave me and the fact that he paid attention to what I had to say. I tell everyone I know about Tad Nelson because of his great work. It was a very stressful time and Tad was there for me. A case like this is very hard to win, but I believed in myself and more important my lawyer Tad Nelson . -Jeff W

    TAD IS THE MAN. He is by far the top criminal defense attorney in Galveston County, if not Harris County too. He is sincere, dedicated, experienced, and incredibly smart. He is a man of conviction who believes in the justice system and its due processes. He will negotiate like no other to get the best possible outcome. He continues higher education to stay on top of his game. I can not say enough good things about him. Bottom line, if you want the best defense for you or your loved one, use Tad!

    Worst Lawyer in the World

    VERY disappointed in Tad Nelson. A laundry list of reasons, too many to mention all of them here; however, he was arrogant, unprofessional, disrespectful, and insulting to name a few. We put up with it, falsely believing that it might just be worth it, IF he turned out to be as good as HE said he was, but even that turned out not to be the case.

    He seemed to have no desire or possibly just lacked the talent to come up with any sort of defense. With many conversations, it felt as if we were talking to a prosecutor, not a defense lawyer. He was always taking the OTHER SIDE in all of our conversations which is NOT why we hired him. And since he (smartly) requires that you pay the full amount up front there’s nothing left to get another lawyer once you realize you have made a big mistake.

    If it had not been for another lawyer who joined his firm and started helping on our case, I don't know where we would have ended up. At least this other lawyer was able to salvage something for us, and we have moved on with our lives. But do yourself a favor and skip over this attorney when you are getting ready to hire. You will be so glad you did.

    I hope this review will spare some other family the pain and frustration we experienced throughout the entire process.

    Thankful To Have Been Referred

    After bonding out of the county jail in Houston I didn't have much money, had my hours cut back on my job, and needed an attorny who would accept a payment plan and work with me and my family cause we didn't want to just hire any old attorny. A friend close to me who, who does home improvement for Tad on occasion suggested I talk to Tad. HE said Tad was experience and heard good things about and that he might be willing to work with us. He did agree to work with us.

    He didn't get my case throwed out or nothin miraculous, but I can say I am free.
    Others in my situation aren't. I just want to say that if you need help from good atty call him.

    One of the most knowledgable and kind attorneys I've met.

    Tad helped me through one of the darkest times in my life. It seemed like I was going to lose everything but Tad helped me understand what was going to happen and how we were going to beat it. He answered my phone calls and texts and was always friendly with me but fierce in defending my case. I felt like I had a friend helping me recover from my mistake. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who asks.

    A Saavy DWI Lawyer

    Hey Tad! I wanted to stop by leave a review of one of the smartest and most energetic DWI lawyers in Houston. Just in case anyone wants to know, I found the good people at the law offices of tad nelson and associates warm and helpful when I went to talk to them about a legal issue I had a few months back.

    I have no interest in the discussion of the details of my case, but I can say that anyone who meets with Tad or Amber will be confident in their abilities to help them with their ordeal. This isn't dry confidence, its confidence based on potential.

    I got out of my situation with results I can consider myself happy with.
    Thanks Tad and Amber!

    Gratefully dismissed!!!!

    I was more than pleased that Mr. Nelson was able to get my possession case dismissed!! He was able to help accommodate my schedule and the fact that I live out of the county that my charges were in. He went above and beyond helping me with my case, truly, and I was very grateful that he was able to get the best possible outcome for me!! Case dismissed!!!!

    Tad Nelson

    I recently hired Tad Nelson to defend me in a very difficult situation. Tad was very good at putting me at ease and he was diligent in his preparation for trial. Tad is passionate in trial and he understands the dynamics of working with a jury. His judgment is excellent and I highly recommend him for defense matters.

    I was recently arrested for aggravated assault with bodily harm / deadly weapon.After a year long status conference with head way made ,we still didn't get an exceptable offer from the state.Tad always maintained my innocence,that I acted in self defense ,They assaulted me first.After all was said and done ,the DA did not offer me an exceptable deal.We were off to trial,first we had a pretrial.,during pretrial Tad Nelson presented the weak evidence of the state,unreliable witnessess, he showed the weakness of the STATES CASE..The state could not dispute the facts and the case was dismissed.
