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.

Exceptional Service
Ryan handled my case and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. He was professional and courteous, patient with my questions, and quick to respond. He went to court for me (it was in a different town) and got me a reduced charge. I absolutely recommend him!

Awesome
My experience with Ryan Nelson representing me was beyond what I could ask for. Any questions that was asked was answered. No matter how big nor small. I wasn’t left in the dark and that was very important to me. He worked my case thoroughly and took his time. I was confident he would do his job and much more. Adrian his paralegal was so sweet and very patient and always directed as needed. Thank you so much guys!

Great Lawyer & Staff!
Ryan and his staff were great to work with and very responsive anytime I or my family had any questions regarding my case. Ryan was able to get my charges reduced and then dismissed all together. I definately recommend Ryan Nelson for anyone looking for experienced and knowledgeable counsel.

Wonderful!
Ryan was a great lawyer in helping with what was probably a “small to him”, but “big to us” situation. He was great at reassuring us of what the possibilities were and ultimately stuck with the case until it was dismissed. Very grateful for his expertise and patience!

GREAT TEAM WORK
Such a great team work from PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. It’s been more than a pleasure dealing with PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST whose best and only interest was their clients. I’m finally back on track with my financials and credit score high to 805 TransUnion, 809 Equifax and 811 Experian. I’m going to sustain it for as long as I can. I honestly recommend them to the globe. Contact them via: [email protected]

DUI offense
Ryan was a great lawyer during this tough process for me. He was very attentive and knowledgeable in all questions I asked. Ultimately, my charge was reduced so I wasn't officially charged with a DUI, thanks to him. Will definitely recommend him and his firm to anyone in need.

Detailed Consultation
Mr. Nelson exceeded my expectations when discussing my case. He was very thorough and discussed legal approaches available to him. I expected a 15min overview and request for my credit card information. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a 1hr consultation and a fee of $0. I felt I was in very capable hands when speaking to Mr. Nelson and felt very confident in his abilities as a criminal defense attorney. He seemed genuinely concerned about my case. I will retain the services of Mr Nelson and highly recommend.

Incredible Attorney
Ryan is a strategic thinker, fantastic communicator and compassionate attorney. From my initial phone consultation, Ryan’s decades of legal experience were evident. He articulated all of the options, provided solutions and expressed care. His ability to analyze the situation, people and potential hurdles was remarkable. Throughout my entire legal process, Ryan provided timely, clear and concise details about my case. I was always about to reach him throughout the process and never felt alone. His remarkable communication brought my mind and spirit to ease. Above everything Ryan is a thoughtful and a kind human. Ryan asked questions to express his care for my wellbeing and provided counsel that was always in my best interest. Ryan worked extensively on my case inside and outside of the court room. Ryan’s intentional preparation illustrated his investment in my receiving an optimal outcome. I was extremely impressed with the display of Ryan’s intelligence, confidence and focus while in the court room. I deeply appreciate Ryan as my counsel because he represented me beyond what I imagined! Ryan is an outstanding counsel and I highly recommend hiring him if you desire to have an incredible attorney.

Worth every penny!
I was charged with a DUI and Ryan tore apart the officers testimony and got me a not guilty verdict. This is the guy you want in your corner. At no point during the process did I feel like I didn't have the best possible defense. I have his card in my wallet next to my license and I will not hesitate to pull it if I ever need help again.

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.
