About Ryan

Learn Ryan’s areas of practice.

It would be very difficult to find a more experienced trial attorney than Ryan Nelson. After obtaining his undergraduate degree from Wittenberg University and his JD from the University of Cincinnati, Mr. Nelson spent the better part of 23 years at the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office where he served as an Assistant Chief Prosecuting attorney. Mr. Nelson has tried well over a hundred juries, including high profile felonious assault, rape, murder, robbery, arson and insurance fraud cases.

With extensive experience in the field of DUI/OVI, Mr. Nelson regularly taught, trained and lectured at the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office and other police agencies in the State of Ohio. In addition to trying cases, Mr. Nelson was also responsible for instructing newer junior prosecutors on how to practice, and regularly lent his DUI/OVI expertise to senior prosecutors in DUI/OVI related homicide prosecutions.

Mr. Nelson’s knowledge base and reputation for clarity, integrity, honesty and realism has few peers and he is fiercely dedicated to seeking the best possible resolutions for his clients.

When he is not fighting for his clients, Mr. Nelson can be found in the kitchen making meals for his family, working out, running or playing video games.

Excellent attorney!
I had two warrants including a probation violation warrant that Ryan got reversed. I was facing 7 months total in jail and walked out a free man with no probation. Ryan was very knowledgeable about the judges I was facing. All in all, great attorney who I will recommend to anyone needing one.

Great lawyer and super helpful!
Ryan helped me understand the process when I wasn’t sure what was going on. Ryan got my case dismissed and taken care of super fast. He always keeps you up to date on what’s going on and is there anytime you have questions. I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone!

Exceptional person and Lawyer
If you need legal representation there is no other I would trust. He communicates well and prompt. He's patient and thorough when explaining procedures and helping me understand the pros and cons of my decisions. He adds a level of security and comfort when facing legal issues. I'm truly grateful for his knowledge and experience in representing me when I needed it. Ryan is an amazing lawyer and wonderful person. Thank you.

I highly recommend Suhre & Associates (Ryan Nelson)
Ryans experience is unmatched in the court room as well as his ability to speak to you as a friend at the same time. No amount of money is to much money if I had to pick Ryan Nelson or anyone from Suhre to ever represent me again. Outcome from hiring Ryan ultimately 2 cases both dismissed.
