Look No further.
Attorney Vanessa, was great from the start, she immediately put all my fears at ease, she was informative, re-assuring, well educated and a lion-ness in the court room! She handled multiple cases for me, in which I also threw a monkey wrench in. Attorney Vanessa handled them swiftly while getting me the conclusion I was looking for. Attorney Vanessa has better hands than Allstate, seriously, look no further.

Best Criminal Defense Attorney
Vanessa is one of the best criminal defense attorneys I know. She was so proactive in my husband case. She really is a straight shooter and stands by her word. She is also patient and understanding. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney to represent my husband. She was able to get him a walk through with the judge on a VOP. She made the whole process very easy for us and was able to get him reinstated. I truly recommend this amazing women to anyone who has a criminal issue. She is truly the best ❣️

One of a kind
Before I sat with Vanessa I felt like I was breathing through a straw on a daily basis, the amount of stress and questions I had without a clear thought was just a mess. She completely understand my situation and was able to handle my stress with such a polite and calming presence. All of my paper work and citations was organized and laid out for me so we can go through the moment together and from an outside view she went over each step and how we can approach it. She kept communication important with me if I ever had to ask her anything that I was worried about and if I wanted more of an understanding, she wasted no time answering my messages and I couldn’t thank her more for her services. After our follow up she genuinely cared for her clients and it allowed me to relax knowing she would do her best with my case. I couldn’t be more grateful for her time and experience, and til this day I’ll still thank her for all of her work and having the best outcome for me.

Unrivaled.
Vanessa exemplified professionalism and pragmatism as my lawyer. I’ve never got so much as a speeding ticket and earlier this year I walked into a domestic violence issue that resulted in me losing losing my career and turning my life upside down. I was recommended Vanessa through a relative who had heard of her through an associate of his and based off of my conversation with Vanessa and the other glowing reviews on this site, my family assisted me in hiring her day 1 after posting bond and leaving jail. Vanessa’s tact and matter-of-fact handling my periodic barrage of questions is nothing short of remarkable. I received a thorough answer to my questions so quick, I’d wonder if she had some how gotten them before I even hit the “send” button. Throughout the process, she was frank and didn’t sugar coat things. In my own opinion, I think that’s an ideal approach to take. Being realistic and accounting for the worst and best case scenarios will temper your expectations, especially in legal matters where strategy and timing can be key. She prepared me thoroughly and helped me plan and see any possible issues that could appear throughout this episode.. Vanessas experience, knowledge and stick-to-itivness proved more than enough to settle my unease and anxiety as my future hung in the balance. I type this from my home with my career back in order, my charges dropped and my mind totally at ease. I think if you’re trying to win, you should hire her.

The right result.
Vanessa was a professional throughout the entire process. She was easily accessible, and kept in touch even during the COVID-19 pandemic and is very easy to communicate with. She worked extra hard for me as with the COVID pandemic and virtual court issues that caused extra court dates she was on top it. Vanessa made me feel that she was really on my side from the beginning and she reassured me that the motion for dismissal would be granted. If you need someone on your side call Vanessa. I'm grateful for all you've done for me Thank you again. Mark

Amazing and Highly Recommenced
I hired Mrs.Nye to handle my son case. We never experienced anything like this before. She guided both of us through the entire process from the beginning to the end. She was always available if I had any question, frustrations or worries. We are still a current client of hers. If you get into a jam, please look her up. If she can’t take on the case she will steer you in the rite direction.

From Beginning to End
Ms. Nye, throughout the entire process, was a professional! She was easily accessible, gave expert advice, and made all of the right moves during my 9 month ordeal. She worked very hard for me, was very easy to communicate with, and made me feel that she was really my side from the beginning until the end. When searching for a lawyer, if you haven't considered hiring Ms.Nye to represent you, then you haven't done your due diligence. Thank you again Ms. Nye! You're a very special talent and I'm grateful for all you've done for my family and I.

Best of the Bay Area
I hired Ms. Nye to handle my DUI and coincidentally recommended her to a friend for a drug possession charge. She won both of our cases and I only recommend one attorney in Tampa Bay...her name is Vanessa Nye.

Amazing result !
From our first conversation by phone, she reassured me of the best possible outcomes and established our goal. As a mother, she completely understood the resulting impact of the situation if not resolved correctly and the importance of a successful outcome. She quickly went to work and I was surprised to hear from her within a couple of weeks that "All charges had been dropped" - AMAZING !

She takes the S out of stress.
You never know how great someone is, until needing someone great is your only option. My son was charged with a serious felony and vanessa took his case and assured us that she will get this case dismissed, I couldn't believe what I heard but she delivered as promised. We had five court summonses we only went once, unbelievably she did it all . First class up to the minute notifications and professionalism, equals victory with vanessa nye . The best attorney hands down. Thank you Ms. Nye.

Worth Every Penny
Vanessa's services were worth every penny. The false charges against me would have permanently ruined any career in my field. Vanessa had the charges dropped and was very easy to work with. She is very friendly and got the job done without any hassle and without worrying me.

Highly recommended Vanessa!
Vanessa was recommended to me by good friend as a trustworthy and professional attorney, and she fulfilled my every expectation. She was very knowledgeable about the court system and criminal law, navigating my DUI case without my presence being required (until sentencing). Vanessa worked hard to have my charges reduced and probation sentencing set to minimum, as my circumstances were unique. I highly recommend Vanessa as an attorney.

"I endorse this lawyer. Vanessa brings a unique skill set to the table. I have never met an attorney so versed at finding "technicalities" and "punching holes" in the opposition's case. Nye is a winner."

"I have known Vanessa Nye for over 17 years now. I first worked with her as an Assistant Public Defender in the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit. During that time, we shared ideas regarding issues/cases and she was always of help regarding finding the answer. I also have sought advice from her in private practice while handling criminal cases over the last 17 years. She has always sent me in the right direction and/or given me the correct answer outright. If I bypass a case because of conflict, I would have no problem referring the case to her as her reputation is highly regarded as both a former Assistant Public Defender and a private attorney. My observation of her courtroom demeanor can only be described as impressive. In sum, I endorse Vanessa and her ethical practice of law as she is both competent and professional."

"I emphatically endorse this lawyer. I have known Ms. Nye for over 20 years. As a fellow criminal defense attorney I would say Ms. Nye has a reputation as a very professional attorney who fights tirelessly for her clients. She has earned the respect of her peers through aggressive trial work and excellent results. Her personality has created friendships throughout the courthouse and the legal community. Most charges are not resolved in trial. This fact makes it critically important to have an attorney who has an excellent rapport with not only the prosecutors, but also the judges in the criminal courthouse. Ms. Nye has all that and more. I would highly recommend Ms. Nye to anyone charged with a crime."
