Great Attorney to Work With
Nicolas Nelson did an amazing job guiding me through a difficult time. He is easy to talk with and truly cares for his clients; all while being aggressive to serve them legally. He is a very talented lawyer and I am grateful that he represented me.

High quality counsel
Nick prepared a will and reviews legal documents for me before I commit to contracts. I appreciate his thoroughness, diligence and quick response when I need help. I have recommended him to many friends.

A prayer answered!
I had been navigating through a very contentious custody battle. My child's mother went as far a falsely accusing me of sexually molesting my son. I had a horrible attorney and an OP was entered. I fought aggressively and it was overturned half way through. 4 years later, the battle was still on. It was costing me financially and emotionally. Nick is strong, wise, and confident in court. He has a keen eye at discerning truth, and is amazing at adjusting the perception to reflect that truth. Many times we can't say what we want to say because the attorney isn't prepared for questioning at a hearing, which is why I had to endure such grief, but Nick was SPOT ON! He was able to read me on the stand, and knew exactly how to correct the misconceptions. If you want ANY peace and relief in court, Nick is definitely the one who can help provide that. May God bless you, your business, and your ministry. You have no idea how much your help meant to me and my family!

Integrity and fair price!
I recently hired Attorney Nick for a name change issue. I did not want to be overwhelmed with the process myself, and actually found him by posting a question on AVVO. He responded in a prompt manner, and since he was in the area, I thought I would go see him and find out how much his services cost. I found him to be most fair, in prices, and he is such a kind, gentle man with a keen sense of humor, and very comfortable to be around. More than that, he knows his practice, and is extremely knowledgeable about what to expect. The process was made very simple, and he was great to work with. If I ever needed his type of services again I would definitely call him!

Christian Values
Mr Nelson helped me resolve my divorce in a timely manner. He has high moral christian values which I found was important to help me as I navigated through the muddy waters of divorce. He was the voice of reason when I could not see or think what needed to be done. Thank you!

Great, zealous attorney
Nick is a committed, experienced attorney with great skill in solving complex issues. He has helped me many times over the years by providing me with sound, practical legal advice, and I continue to count him as a trusted adviser and litigator.

Knowledgeable and Efficient
I've consulted with Nick Nelson on neighborhood association matters as well as a court proceeding. In both instances he was knowledgeable about the subject and efficient in handling the legal work. I will definitely use his services again in the future.

High integrity attorney
Based on my experience, I highly recommend Mr. Nelson. He was very responsive to my inquiries and questions on an employment issue. He researched topics that were outside the scope of his regular areas of expertise and provided great insight to help me provide the best contract arrangement for my employee. I will go to him for future legal counsel.

Superb advice and excellent, successful results.
I've retained Mr. Nelson for two significant legal procedures: power of attorney and my estate/will. In each case, Mr. Nelson offered superb advice, and prepared complicated legal documents. He was also very cost-effective - he guided me wisely. I highly recommend his legal counsel and services.
