A lawyer who will fight for you!
I was getting the run around from the Insurance Company until I retained Attorney Yuri Nielsen. I didnt have to deal with them after that and Attorney Nielsen got me more than I expected!

The Nielsen Law Firm is on your side
Attorney Nielsen came to my house after my accident so I didnt have to miss work. He made sure that everything was taken care of and was on my side from day one to settlement. I highly reccomend the Nielsen Law Firm to anyone who has been injured in a motor vehicle accident.

Attorney Nielsen to the rescue!
After my accident I didn't know where to turn. I was in so much pain and insurance company representatives kept putting pressure on me and telling me that I was lying about my injuries. Attorney Nielsen came to my house to meet me because it was still difficult to get around and immediately the stress and anxiety I had been feeling diminished. No more calls from insurance companies, no more guessing about what to do next, and after I was able to focus on getting better, I was very happy with my settlement!

Aggressive and Effective!
I was a stress case after my accident and dealing with the insurance company became really overwhelming. After meeting with Mr. Nielsen I felt such a sense of relief because he assured me that all I needed to worry about was getting better and would take care of the rest. I'm happy to say that is exactly what he did and I can't thank him enough for helping me get my life back on track!

Don't waste your time!
I would not recommend Yuri to anyone! If I could give less than one star, I would in a heart beat! He is extremely unprofessional and you will never get the truth out of this attorney. He wasted at least half an hour to 45 minutes of my time waiting for him whenever I met with him for an appointment. He was always so late! In the end my case was very unsuccessful and I still have no clue what is going on with it. I can't seem to get answer whether I ask via email or phone calls. He will not return my calls. I am used to attorneys communication with me via mail or even periodic updates whenever there is communications between them and the insurance company. But not this attorney! I regret the day I hired him, because he certainly is not on my side!
