We found Van Riper and Nies through online reviews. We called and scheduled a consultation free of charge! Both were VERY helpful about the Florida court process and knowledgeable in all aspects of defense. Coming from Texas we were not familiar with the Florida Judicial system. My husband and I were very discouraged and upset by the false charges against him. Christian and Tim’s knowledge of the Criminal Florida court system and investigative skills truly pulled us through a very difficult situation. They were extremely helpful and efficient in resolving questions that we had. I was surprised by their accessibility. Anytime we had a question, and trust me we had many, they responded quickly. I truly had begun to doubt the judicial system, but they stepped up explained the process and plainly described our options and outcomes. Our stress levels were exponentially reduced by their representation. They never embellished the truth or gave us “false promises”. We clearly knew what we were up against and that honesty and forth right knowledge helped us take the right path during our case. I am proud to say that Van Riper and Nies helped us receive the appropriate/ justifiable “Not Guilty” ruling. Thank you Christian and Tim for your dedication to details, and vested interest in our case! I would recommend you both to anyone!!

I endorse this lawyer. I worked with Christian when he was a prosecutor at the State Attorney's Office. He was (and still is) one of the best trial lawyers on the Treasure Coast. He is never afraid to go to trial and fight for his clients. Moreover, Christian's knowledge of the law and ability to spot issues that other lawyers may overlook is second to none. I highly recommend Christian Van Riper to help you in your time of need.
