Lenell represented me in an appeal case. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge. She seems to be well connected and well liked by her colleages. I was very happy with the result of my case and would recommend her to family and friends.

I am a lawyer. I never dreamed I'd be the client of a criminal defense attorney ..... until I was falsely accused by the police of committing a misdemeanor crime, arrested, and thrown in jail. Given the lies in the police reports, I was not surprised when the prosecution went forward. A lawyer friend referred me to Lenell. She did a fantastic job.
Lenell investigated the facts, got to the bottom of things, and smelled a rat. She persuaded the trial court to dismiss the criminal charge. The court concluded that the State had violated my constitutional rights to due process. The court found that the police had purposefully destroyed material exculpatory evidence -- the airport video of the purported crime itself! The court held that I could not receive a fair trial. When the prosecution would not accept defeat and appealed, Lenell persuaded the appellate court to affirm the dismissal.
Lenell does not get rattled by the little annoyances. She is one cool cucumber. But she also has a great bedside manner that kept me calm and centered through one of the worst experiences of my life. I cannot say enough good things about her analytical and writing ability. Her briefs are clear, concise, and to the point. She marshals the facts and law in a way that only a lawyer, as client, can appreciate. Did I mention that she presents herself very favorably in oral argument? I could go on all day, but in short, she possesses – and uses – all of the skills of the forceful, competent, and persuasive legal advocate she is. You will be lucky to have her on your side. I know I was.

I was in Federal prison My parents had hired a Washington lawyer for me who was the worst attorney imaginable. I was terrified I was facing years in a state prison after my release from the Federal system. My charges were Fraud and Theft, also embezzelment. My parents listened to my fears about the counsel I had. They read the Reviews about Lenell they talked with her, they hired her,We fired the other attorney and then Boy!!! Did things change!! Lenell was able to get my Bond reinstated I walked free out of the Federal system, I reported to Washington for court and met Lenell Face to Face. She pulled NO punches, is direct and honest, she is full of life and positive energy being in her presence gives you hope. Lenell worked on my case and then worked a miracle!!!!!!! When she was done I went from multiple felony charges to 1 Gross Misdemeanor. I served NO more jail time. I know I cannot find the words to tell you how amazed I still am by what this Attorney is able to do, She is brillant... I guess what you need to know is if you are looking for an attorney for yourself or a loved one your search needs to be over!!!! You will do yourself an injustice if you do not hire Lenell. AGAIN.... LENELL, THANK YOU, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!

It is so difficult to select a Lawyer when you do not have a recommedation. Should you believe this review ? Absolutely , You will benefit if you trust this woman !
After having spent several thousand dollars on a lawyer who was ineffectual council I turned to this site to find another to represent our daughter in court. She was facing a harse sentence to say the least ! In blind faith i trusted the reviews I read from ordinary people like myself ! I hope you decide to do the same if you are reading this review.
We as a family are grateful for the wisdom, the respect she has earned within the courts, which you can witness as you see her interact in the courtroom . Her knowledge of the law is something you could only hope and pray for.Her fee's are earned by her focus on the case. Her advise is always in the clients best interest.
I can never give a review that is worthy of her ability. I woud ask that you trust this review. OUr daughters life actually depended on this woman's ability.
I do know it is frightening to need a lawyer you feel your very life depends upon,
I would say to you relax, call Lenell, trust her, hire her and know you have the best possible representation out there. She will keep you informed, She will go above and beyound your expectations.
Written with Great admiration and Earned Respect

I had retained her services for a friend of mine Mokhtar
what can I say? it is hard to write anything about how good She is.
what ever I write I go and delete it, saying to my self no she is better then that.
basically I don't think there is any lawyer better then Her
she reversed my friend's conviction and we had a new trial.
Thank you Lenell

A friend hired Lenell Nussbaum for me after my arrest on serious felony charges. He had enquired in the legal community for the best attorney for this type of offence. He was given Lenell’s name. Lenell met me in jail to discuss my case. I was scared, confused, and felt hopeless in the face of the legal consequences of my actions. Lenell responded with compassionate honesty. She offered me hope where it was appropriate and gave me the truth with frank directness. Lenell’s legal defense gave me the best possible outcome, nothing less than a miracle in many people’s eyes. Her legal knowledge, negotiation skills, and personal contacts in the legal community make her a formidable presence in her area of practice. In my opinion, though, it is her compassion that sets her apart from many other fine attorneys. Lenell is filled with a compassionate grace that kept me grounded, hopeful and sane. In my worst of times, Lenell was the lone light of hope and compassion. Thank you, Lenell.

At a time when I was not able to think clearly, nor make wise decisions, Lenell provided me direction, brutally honest feedback and all options that were available to me. She was able to see through insignificant issues and really deal with the issues at hand. I would not be where I am today and I would not have the options I do without her heartfelt care, concern and abilities. Lenell is a real person and she is a master within her profession.

About a year and a half ago I was arrested & charged with a felony. Lenell brought me in and discussed my case and options. Due to her extensive knowledge of the law I was able to plea to a minor offence, not spend a day in jail, and have my conviction vacated once the fines were paid. I had high expectations and she surpassed them. Picking Lenell to represent me was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

I could not be more pleased with the way Lenell handled my cases and the outcome. I was facing several felony charges that would have been very easy to prove. Now, I have none! Her vast knowledge, creativity and experience no doubt had a profound impact on how my situation turned out. I have retained other criminal attorneys in the past and have never been represented like I was with her. Thank you so much Lenell! I love you.

Lenell had the honesty to tell me that I would essentially have no hope of a "not guilty" verdict on a violent crimes case, and did so without trying to extract money from me or pushing more legal services. She did it in a very kind, knowledgeable way, and clearly explained the extent of what she could do and what I could expect. She gave me very good advice and recommended that I resolve the matter without the legal system, even though it meant she would not earn a dime.
I had agreed to pay her for my initial consultation (she does do free consultations, but only for cases where you are definitely going to need a lawyer). The best part of this story? She never rushed me, and at the end when I tried to pay, she shook her head and told me Merry Christmas!
