About Nelson Tilden

About me

Beginning in 1923, attorney John Tilden, Esq. established his law practice in Downtown Orlando with a full service law firm serving Central Florida residents. Following in his grandfather’s footsteps, attorney N. Fleetwood Tilden, Esq. began his Central Florida law practice after graduating from law school in 1993. After a career as an Assistant State Attorney prosecuting Central Florida criminal cases, the Law Office of Tilden Law was established. Practicing exclusively Criminal Defense, Mr. Tilden has handled over 6,000 criminal cases.


Tilden Law is one of the leading Criminal Defense law firms in the Central Florida, representing a select number of clients throughout Orlando in both Orange County and Seminole County criminal courts. With our office centrally located in downtown Winter Park, Tilden Law draws on 15 years criminal trial experience to achieve individual results that meet or exceed the expectation of our clients.

Tilden Law is a result oriented criminal defense firm and not a high volume practice. We intentionally limit the number of client cases handled at any single time in order to devote ample time to each case and each client’s specific needs. We recognize that superior results are achieved by not only knowing the current trends in the law but more importantly, intimately knowing the local court system and the individuals on the other side.

While Tilden Law is a full service criminal defense firm, our firm’s core criminal practice is focused on DUI charges, Drug Offenses, Domestic Violence crimes, Suspended Driver License issues, and Shoplifting/Theft cases. We are dedicated to representing both clients who are facing a criminal charge for the first time and those who have a prior criminal record. Once your case is concluded, Tilden Law routinely files for a Sealing/Expunging of your criminal record.
