I got injured overseas and wasn't getting treated well with the insurance company. I hired Mr. Nies after my insurance company started sending me to their ''independent'' doctors when my doctor didn't seem to give them the diagnosis they wanted. Mr. Nies put a stop to that, as multiple doctors opinions were un-necessary. He made sure the insurance carrier sent me to doctors and psychical therapists who were within the allotted 50 miles, and made himself and his staff available anytime I had questions or concerns. He knew the various small tricks the insurance carrier's use to try and stop paying you, like using markets that don't exist or that I wasn't qualified for during the Labor Market Survey. He was easy to work with and genuinely cared about my case. I'll buy him a beer if he finds himself near my town.

Tim Nies represented me in a divorce I didn't want to become contentious. My wife and I wanted to remain friends, and even though she retained a highly aggressive lawyer out of fear, I feel good about my decision to opt for an attorney who was not only exceptional, but exceptionally human. Tim developed solutions both of us could live with and I am glad I there are attorneys out there who aren't trying to destroy the person on the other side. Believe me, it IS easier to go easy on each other...it is hard enough to end a marriage without turning the divorce into a war. Tim is truly the best in this regard. Do yourself a favor and meet with him.

divorce was the hardest thing I have ever been through. I honestly don't know how I would have survived this process without Tim Nies! I recommend him to absolutely anyone in need of such assistance.

Easiest word to define Timothy is Integrity. He was completely honest with me and saved me a lot of money compared to what other attorney's advised me to do. He spent a lot of time on the phone with me helping me out instead of just taking my money. His advice was spot on and I would advise going to him over any other attorney in Broward county. I wish there was more I could do then just write a review, I want to get the word out for him

Tim Nies is a class act. Knows and understands DBA law through and through. He advised me honestly by giving me sound and realistic advice. He will do the same for you.

Tim Nies guided me through a long and difficult period of medical treatment which eventually led to a successful settlement agreement with the DBA insurance company.
Without Tim's expert advice, experience, and foresight as well as overall sense of humor the results would have been very different indeed. I would highly recommend this attorney to anyone who has been injured working
overseas on a DBA contract.

During my tenure as a Security Contractor throughout the Middle East, I have known several guys that were injured on the job including myself. I, like the rest of my counterparts, knew very little about DBA and none of us were briefed on the “Right” way concerning DBA or how to deal with the Insurance Company or the Case Worker. That was during the initial phase of the Iraq War when the only people who dealt with the Defense Base Act were the widows of fallen contractors. I learned the hard way just like most of my former teammates. After I went through rehabilitation, I took some time off then went back to work in Afghanistan. A little more than six years later I was injured again during another convoy. This time around I had the knowledge to deal with the DBA. Before I was shipped home for treatment I was able to do some research on DBA Attorneys. After researching several lawyers I found Tim Nies. Not only was he well versed with the Defense Base Act, he’s a fellow Veteran and an Army Ranger (enlisted) from the 75th, 3rd Battalion. Tim took care of me from day one! My case was more complex than your average DBA case because my injury was almost identical to the one I sustained in Iraq so naturally the insurance company tried to fight me on it. Tim’s civilian counterparts, the non-veteran types, advised him not to go forward with my case because of the complexity but Tim is a soldier that just happens to have a law degree, not a lawyer that joined the Army for college money so naturally Tim took my case. A typical DBA case will last 6-12 months, my case lasted for 26 months and during that time the insurance company tried to stop my medical treatment and they successfully suspended my bi-weekly DBA checks in order to persuade me into accepting their ridiculous settlement amount. On my behalf, Tim rejected their settlement amount, quickly attained an appointment with a Dept of Labor Judge and successfully contested my unfair treatment concerning the suspension of my bi-weekly compensation payments. I was awarded back payments from the date the insurance company suspended my payments. In short, Tim saved me from foreclosure. Shortly thereafter, Tim entered into settlement negotiations on my behalf. Because of Tim and his previous experience with DBA, he displayed personal fortitude and a soldier’s constitution that clearly relayed the Warrior’s Motto, “Leave No Man Behind”. The insurance company quickly realized they were fighting a loosing battle and agreed to the settlement terms Tim put before them. At no time during my case did Tim act like a typical lawyer. He always displayed character and acted like a true “Ranger”. He always had my six covered. Not only is Tim a damn fine attorney, he’s a great soldier and a good friend.

He's a man who cares about his clients. Great communication throughout my time with him and I always felt that he was going above and beyond to do what he could for me.
