TO THE POINT
Had Mr. NYE to handle a protective order case which was complicated by a municipal case pending. He appeared several times for continuance already and appeared to give an update to the magistrate as requested and the other party did not show up and he got it dismissed.

Top notch
I contacted Darrin about a protective order being issued with false information. He worked to rectify the situation and until the very end he let me know what our next steps were. Got a dismissal and advised on what to do going forward. An excellent choice of attorney.

ANGEL & TOP NOTCH ATTORNEY-
I am currently working with Darrin. I am so thankful for him and how hard he is working to help me. He is extremely thorough and knows what he needs to do in order to help. He took the time to know my entire case, all the other lawyers and anyone and everyone involved before I even had my consultation with him. He has never disregarded any of my concerns and he is a man of his word. He is the best of the best and I have confidence in him to win my case and get this all behind me!!!!

Great representation
Darrin is knowledgable and experienced. He walked myself and my family through a delicate situation when we had no experience with how the legal system works. If issues arose, he was quick to respond and take action.

Darrin Nye
Darrin E. Nye is extremely good at what he does as an Attorney, and I am very satisfied with his work! Mr, Nye has won 4 cases for 4 different family members of mine. These were highly difficult cases! But Mr. Nye is smart! He handled my family cases with wisdom. experience,and knowledge and ease (not to mention he has concern). I was so happy and impressed I have never let him go. Hats off to you Darrin Nye. I only wish continued success to this Attorney. Thank you. Kim...

A decade of high quality, reasonable cost, professional service
I've been using Mr. Nye's services for almost a decade now. Of course he's curteous, responsive, professional, and all the nice things we expect from good legal counsel but even more and most importantly he gets the job done.

Professional and producing Unbelievable Results.
Not an ordinary Attorney. Darrin E. Nye Was professional and unlike many attorneys he was very communicative, gave prompt answers and made us feel secure and knowledgeable every step of the way. This was a pro-Bono case but he didn’t make us feel like a charity case and seemed to give us 100%. His 100% resulted in an unbelievable result that no one would believe! Facing min 2 years, etc. all Charges were dropped! Gave US a new chance at life that honestly in this case saved a life, literately! If you’re looking for an honest, caring, hard working attorney this is one in a million! We can’t thank him enough!

Fantastic person
Darrin is a very generous person. He spoke to me about personal legal issues and didn’t at all ask for money. I plan to hire him soon.

Darrin Nye, a great attorney.
I would like to say That Darrin is a great attorney. He is down to earth and he genuinely cares. I refer everyone that needs an attorney to him. He makes sure that you understand what’s really going on without making you feel left in the dark. My friend Frank sent me to Darrin in 2009 and I’ve used him ever since, and I strongly recommend Darrin...

Best in cincinnati
Darrin E Nye is a great Lawyer. I used him in late 2019 over my child and won my case even faster than expected he cares very much for his clients trust me I have used some of the best lawyers from northern Ky and in Ohio and paid them TOP dollar for the same results that Darrin got my child and I, and he was a Publick defender for my case. He works from the heart and you can trust him even against the state or any big law firm he won't lay down when things get tough and hard he will fight. It's not often a public defender will fight for you like a $200 - $350 an hour lawyer but he will. I have only meet a very few lawyers like him and I have hired the best of the best but most of them the good Lord has taken there is not many like him. It's easy to toss big money at lawyes but you better know what they stand for he stands for his clients and true Justic. He reminds me of a lawyer named Gerald H Priut from Covington KY who has passed away some many years ago may God bless him and his family and his wife Connie from the Northern Ky Barr.

Efficient and Thoughtful
Darrin was very intentional with our case and made me feel heard throughout the course of the journey. I felt like he had an overall optimistic outlook on an otherwise difficult situation which really helped in shaping my own perspective as well. Our family is grateful for his services and would recommend without hesitation. Thank you for all your hard work.

All around awesome
Darrin is very patient and put up with my never ending questions, rants and obnoxious phone calls. He was straight up with me and actually acted like he cared about my child vs just making money. Our case is not over yet but I couldn’t help but write a review when I came across this.

Free and clear
Mr. Nye was exceptional and strategic in winning all three of my cases:two criminal cases where I was wrongfully accused and my custody case involving my daughter. Mr.Nye was consistent in all of the details of a 6 hour custody trial and I won legal custody of my child. I also witnessed Mr. Nye represent someone else in a criminal case ten years ago with expertise..I recommend him as a top of the line attorney.
