About me

C. Stanley Nelson, a native of Lawrence, Kansas, attended one year at the University of Kansas before joining the U.S. Marine Corps in 1943 for three years, part of which was spent in the Pacific and occupying Japan. After the end of World War II, in 1946, Nelson returned to the University of Kansas to complete his undergraduate work and law school.


Nelson began his career as an attorney in 1951 when he became an associate with the law firm of Royce, Hampton, Dunham, Royce & Engleman (now Hampton & Royce, L.C.), one of the oldest law firms in Kansas, first established in 1885.


Nelson's practice includes insurance defense, personal injury claims, worker's compensation cases, and civil trials. Since 2009, Nelson has served as Special Administrative Law Judge on worker's compensation cases assigned to him by the Kansas Department of Labor.


In 2011, Nelson celebrated 60 years of practice as an attorney with Hampton & Royce, where he is of counsel assisting on cases with other members of the firm and being a mentor to new attorneys.


Nelson is a member of the Kansas Bar Association and the Kansas Association of Defense Counsel and a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.


Nelson's wife, Rosemary, of 58 years passed away in 2008. Nelson has four sons - Steve, Jeff, Mike, and Kendal.
