I am a 1983 Graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law.  My entire career has been spent representing my NW Baltimore County and Carroll County neighbors in just about every court in the state.  My diverse practice includes bankruptcy, domestic matters, criminal/traffic and personal injury/Worker's Compensation cases.

 

During this time, I have been elected Chair of the Consumer Bankruptcy Section of the State of Maryland, have published a number of articles in our section newsletter and in the Maryland Bar Journal and lectured other lawyers on various topics.

 

I am very proud of my rating here on AVVO and my rating on Martindale.com where I have the highest rating of AV+ Preeminent. 

 

Inital consultations are always free.  I hope you will consider calling if you have need of legal services.

Responsive & Helpful
Mr. Nesson contacted me in less than 2 minutes after my online request through Avvo. All my questions around the Maryland divorce process and the new laws as of Oct 2016 were answered thoroughly and quickly without hesitation. Mr. Nesson also provided additional insights for consideration and planning purposes which I appreciated. I was quite pleased with his responsiveness and ability to stay on point in the 15 minute scheduled session. Having hired attorneys in the past and familiar with their fees, I found my experience to be extremely pleasant and valuable, all from the comfort of my own office.

The Best Lawyer
I would reccomend Jeffrey Nesson to anyone with an issue regarding the law. His professionalism and compassion for his clients are extraordinary. I especially like that he does not sugar coat anything! Jeff helping me with a brutal divorce and custody battle. It was terrifying. He made the entire process very simple and kept my mind at ease. Jeff fought for me and my case. I will always be grateful for him and what he has done for my family.

Great Listener
Attorney Jeffrey P. Nesson was very diligent and helpful with my case. He informed me of the best options for me with a difficult family matter. Most importantly, I am very thankful to Mr. Nesson for being a great "listener." He approached my case after careful research, and informed me of my legal options. However, he also, honored my personal preference for resolving the family issue.
