Nathan Evershed
What an amazing guy. When my life was abruptly put on hold and accused of allegations I would never do, Nathan Evershed fought on my behalf. Nathan Evershed gave me hope for the future after pretty much losing everything. Cause of Nathan I get the chance to fight for my job back. Thank you for everything Nathan.

Pleasant and smooth experience
Nathan was referred by another attorney we trusted. Nathan made the entire case go smoothly and efficiently. He is we connected and understands not only the ins and outs of how to get things done the right way, he is well connected, and most importantly, knows how to win. We couldn’t have been happier with the results and the way everything was handled, including discussing the pricing and process right up front. Highly recommend Nathan!

Well-Prepared
We had a bit of a incident and needed a lawyer. Nathan Evershed came highly recommended. In court he had done his homework, we knew exactly what to expect, and everything went smoothly. We had a much better resolution to our problem than we could have ever imagined. We're so happy that we hired Nathan Evershed!

I recommend Mr Evershed!
Mr Evershed was wonderful. He handled my case with the absolute diligence and care you need during a critical time such as a criminal case. He was a breath of fresh air when stress and anxiety of the unknown feel like its compressing you. With his help, we were able to get everything dismissed. If you are in need of representation to help get you through trying times, I recommend Mr Evershed, hands down.

Best team ever!
If there was 10 stars, I would give 20. Nathan was part of my team in a recent case and, without him, the case would have been much more difficult. His background and experience provided so much help to the case. It was truly invaluable. I really liked how professional Nathan is, he is honest and gives you a real assessment of the situation. He was able to answer all questions, without hesitation, and is a very genuine person. A professional among pros, if I ever find myself needing legal help again, I will definitely go to Nathan and his team. He is committed to his profession, and will do whatever he can to help guide you through your case(s), he has a proven record, and is not afraid to go fight for you. Thank you, Nathan!

This is who want in your corner.
I recently used Nathan to represent me on a case. He did an outstanding job and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. He took the time to follow up with me every step of the way, explain the process, my options, his legal opinion, etc. He listened to what I had to say and was happy to take the case in the direction that I felt most comfortable. In the end, we got the resolution we hoped for. I hope I never have to use him again, but if I ever find myself in a situation where I need an attorney, he will be my first call.

Hit and run-failure to remain at the scene of the accident.
Nathan Evershed defended my brother for the charge of hit and run with a minor injury. Even though my brother left the scene, there were special circumstances that needed to be considered. Nathan took the time to clearly understand the circumstances and to suggest things that could be done to help the case. He was able to work with the prosecutor to come to a resolution that was acceptable to all the parties involved. We, my brother and siblings, were very pleased with the outcome. We definitely are very glad to have had Nathan Evershed as our attorney.

The representation you need!
I never thought I'd be in a position in life where I needed a lawyer, but when I did, I am SO glad I had Nathan! Having Nathan on my side gave me peace of mind and confidence that everything was going to turn out as best as it could. He was able to break information down to the level of my understanding and I was able to make informed decisions thanks to his knowledge and care he took with my case. Nathan was a great communicator with me as well as those that were involved; I always knew what the next steps were and how to go about things. May I never need another lawyer in my life, but if I do, Nathan Evershed will be my guy!
