My case was very complicated and after dodging the police for 3 years I finally decided to contact Mr. Knight! After meeting with Mr. Knight and discussing the case and options carefully, I was able to get the prosecutor to agree to drop the felony charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle down to a misdemeanor and deferred probation with only 6 months! Mr. Knight was literally a dream come true and was very reachable throughout the entire case! Would definitely recommend!! 5 Stars!!!

Hiring Nelson Knight to help me with my case was quite possibly the best decision I have ever made. Not only was he able to plea my case down from a misdemeanor Class B offense to a misdemeanor Class C offense, was able to negotiate things so well to where both the fine and the community service hours were minimal. This is not something he ever promised nor was it something I ever expected. Just one of the many things Nelson Knight did over and above what he was hired to do. Most importantly, due to Nelson Knight's diligence and "never give up" kind of attitude, I will be eligible to have my offense expunged in 6 months, which if you really think about it, affects my entire life not to mention the impact that this offense could have had to my 22 year career. This incident or what I like to refer to as my “lapse in judgement” on my part, could have easily changed the entire course of my life and negatively affect my ability to ever bring in money to live and help support my family. Nelson Knight understood the magnitude of this and from day one took all the necessary steps to make sure that wasn't going to happen.
What led me to reach out to Nelson Knight in the first place were all of the reviews that I found, honestly too many to count. These reviews were were very informative highlighting so many reasons that make Nelson Knight so successful when it comes to representing his client's, more importantly they provided me hope at a time when I needed it most!
If I had to choose one thing that set Nelson Knight apart from everyone else, it's that he's not afraid of the word "No." When the prosecutor for my case was unwilling to budge or even compromise at all in regards to my offense, Mr. Nelson did not just accept this and move on. Instead, Nelson marched up to this prosecutor's boss’s office, who Nelson knew had much more authority, and presented my case to him. And guess what? It worked!!
A few other things that really stood out to me early on, was the way Nelson would always stop whatever he was doing to take my calls and address my questions or concerns. To my surprise, I learned very quickly that Nelson Knight does not have receptionists or "assistants" that step in from time to time to field calls. From my very first call to his office, it was Nelson Knight that answered the phone. Serious felony cases to minor misdemeanors, I can assure you that Nelson Knight treats everyone and every case with the same level of tenacity, dedication, and hard work! To be perfectly honest, I absolutely dreaded our first meeting, knowing I would have to explain what led me to him and having to explain the details of my situation, but despite my embarrassment and shame I was feeling, Nelson never judged me and treated me with the upmost respect from the very first moment we met. I had met with several attorneys prior to meeting Nelson Knight and none of them offered the creative and strategic ideas that Nelson Night came up. In fact, if it wasn't for these "thinking outside the box" very methodical types of ideas that Nelson strongly suggested I do? I’m quite certain we would not have achieved the outcome we did.
My advice for anyone in need of one of the best criminal defense attorneys in Dallas (if not THE best) is to hire Nelson Knight as quickly as possible. Because when it comes to your future and ultimately how this incident could potentially impact the rest of your life? Every minute counts! If you are reading this review, trust me I’ve done all your homework and research for you. I spent weeks comparing Nelson Knight to what other attorneys claimed they could and could not do and could have easily lost some very valuable time as it pertained to my case. But in the end, I followed my gut and hired Nelson Knight. Trust him to do what you hired him to do. I owe my life and my future to Mr. Nelson and will forever be grateful for all that he did to help me.
