For over 20 years Mr. Abbott has been my general business Lawyer. Specifically, I have hired him to represent me in four matters; to setup the Corporation, a partnership buyout, a Licensing dispute and a Real Estate matter. I have been pleased with the work that was done on all four matters. All of the staff at the office are professional, available and respond quickly to my concerns. I also like how the tasks that make up a legal case are dispatched efficiently. I never feel like I am being taken advantage of when being billed for services. Mr. Abbott has always given me good legal advice and I would highly recommend his services.

I had a medical malpractice case, in which I had originally hired a lawyer who should never had taken the case on in the first place. After nearly five years of going no where that lawyer quit my case claiming financial reasons. I called Nelson's office the same day I got the letter, explained the situation and was told to come up the next day with all my documents. After consulting with him, he said he would try to help me, there were lots of things wrong and improperly handled but he saw that I had a legitimate claim. He was able to save my case and took me through to a settlement that I was very lucky to get, after the major errors by my previous attorney. Nelson and his office staff were very responsive to any call or email I sent. They kept me fully informed through out the process and they demonstrated they cared about me and my case. Hopefully I will never again need a malpractice attorney, but I would call on Nelson if ever I did. Wish I had met him before I got involved with the first one, who cost me valuable time and thousands of dollars.

I endorse this lawyer. Working at the Abbott Law Firm gives me the insight to the knowledge and efforts Nelson puts forth in his personal injury practice. If you or someone you know has been injured, I highly recommend you call Nelson first.
