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.

Tim Nies represented me with a situation where an insurance company was not paying for what they should have paid for. He got them to pay quickly. I also sent a friend nurse to him and she was very happy with Tim. I recommend him to anyone needing a lawyer.

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!!
