In February of 2013, my son was charged with murder and assault in Whatcom County Superior Court. We found Dave Nelson on line and became interested in him because had a great reputation with many years of criminal defense expertise. We called him and he responded right away. Within hours of my son’s arrest, we were meeting about the case and we hired Dave. My son had self-defense and legal justification as his defense to both charges, but the prosecution insisted otherwise. But Dave Nelson was able to keep the case moving very rapidly and filed a series of strategic motions to flesh out his defense. The government’s case began to fall apart under the pressure that Dave Nelson was bringing to the case. Within eight months (which is a small amount of time for a murder case), all of the work he did resulted in the prosecutor capitulating and finally dismissing the charges. After that, my son was set free and he now has his life back. Dave Nelson’s excellent work saved my son from life imprisonment. If you or your family member is ever in any trouble in the criminal justice system, I strongly recommend that you hire Attorney Dave Nelson as your criminal defense lawyer.
Dave was very professional and knowledgeable. He was sincere and there there me through out my case. I'm very pleased with the outcome. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Mr. Nelson represented me through a domestic case issue. He was very effective in simplifying the process and getting to the core of the legal issue. This helped to get past the hurdles of the "emotional" aspect and focus on the important and actionable information. I would absolutely recommend him to my colleagues.
Mr. Nelson, Thank you for everything you have done for our family!! We could not get any luckier to have you represent our case. Your knowledge of the system and caring for the client is above and beyond call of duty. Thank you again for everything!
David Nelson has proven himself to be far more than worth his remuneration. I was simultaneously deeply impressed and also placed at ease by his vast knowledge and experience with my predicament. He articulated plain and simple steps for me to follow, resulting in a significantly smoother process than I would have experienced elsewhere. The end result of my case was vastly more successful than I initially expected, and I was literally stunned with his ability to work so proficiently through a ridiculously complicated legal system. We have just completed our case and I have already heartily recommended him and will continue to do so.
Mr. Nelson is our business attorney. He has a strong competence in the law, presents legal options in understandable terms and advises with a tangible loyalty to our business. He is personable, accessible, responsive and thorough. We know that Mr. Nelson is a life-long resident of the area and has many business contacts inside and outside of the law who always speak highly of him. We feel fortunate to have found a true business partner and friend.
Dave was there for me and my husband in a time when we needed him most. He was able to work with us just before we moved out of state within a very short amount of time. It was a high pressure time for us. He told us exactly what we needed to do, and he really knows his stuff. Anyone who is looking for a great lawyer at a reasonable rate, he is your guy. Thanks Dave!
For the first, and hopefully last, time in my life, I was in need of legal representation and consider myself very lucky to have found Dave. From the onset, he has made sure to make me aware of my options and ramifications of the decisions that were made. He has made himself available to me with no questions asked and has always been patient with my litany of questions and phone calls. The legal system can be intimidating and daunting and having a lawyer who is not only knowledgeable, but patient, has made this whole process much less painless than I anticipated. I recommend Dave whole-heartedly.
