Top notch!!!
Gerry has been a blessing to me for the past 25 years. I met him at age 13 as he was retained by my parent. Later in life he became my husbands and I’s attorney and has done an impeccable job. He is our families life line when matters calls for an attorney. He is full of knowledge, wisdom, and gives great legal advice. Professional but also down to earth.

Would highly recommend!
Attorney Nelson was recommended to me by my best friend. I recently consulted with him regarding my options/rights in a possible divorce case. He listened and was very thorough in explaining the details, preparing me as to what to expect. He also didn't charge an arm and a leg for the information! He was very reasonable in price! I definitely plan to retain him if/when my situation calls for the need of a good attorney! Thank you Mr. Nelson!

Wonderful Lawyer
I found Jerry by accident. I was being represented by another lawyer and Jerry showed up. He listens, he is caring he did very well for me with my divorce sixteen years ago. I recently went to him again and he is as polite and caring as he was sixteen years ago. He went above and beyond for me. Thank you Jerry for being there for me when I needed you. I can not ask for a better lawyer. I hired Jerry to be my lawyer for my divorce and for doing my will. He has always worked with me with money being a single mother of two boys. If you are really looking for a good caring lawyer, call Jerry.

Wonderful Attorney with a Positive Apporaoch
I cannot express the lengths Attorney Jerry Nelson went for me and my case. He was determined to seek justice. He held his composure under pressure and even offered the grace to calm me under unknown circumstances without giving any false hope. He remained calm and expressed a down to earth and relatable persona. He is an all around great guy/ attorney and I recommend him and his law firm. He has amazing staff that make you feel like your part of their family. I cannot thank you enough!

Was great with my custody case. Very good attorney, felt that he was not only knowledgeable but personable made me feel at ease. Great attorney to get!!!

Amazing attorney!
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!

Wasn't up on his game..
We hired him for a child custody case. All went well in the beginning then he was out with covid for a few weeks right before our hearing. Instead of postponing til he could be on top of his game he consulted with my son just 2 days before the hearing. We had no idea they retained a lawyer and a few other things. He should have postponed then. 2 days later he went to court and advised my son to take a deal that will hurt my grandaughters well being. Instead of starting off visits slowly IN OUR STATE the lawyers deal was short sighted and can cause long term damage mentally and or physically to my grandaughter. My grandaughter needs her mother but only if she got the help she needed. The lawyer talked a big game before court of things he would do to keep my grandaughters saftey in check but failed miserably.

Couldn't even defend someone on a traffic ticket let alone a criminal charge
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.

Terrible attorney
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.
