Brain Nelson is the best lawyer I have ever had I had the pleasure of doing business with. He represented me in a traumatic case, and I can honestly say, I don't know where I would be without him. I was in bad shape, no medical insurance and he was there for me. He got me the help I needed along the way, and got me the MAXIMUM settlement. He is a GREAT lawyer, smart, genuine and honest!

Brian was referred to me by a close friend. He is not your typical attorney. He is friendly, caring and most importantly, sincere. His demeanor is calm and collected which makes him very easy to talk to. He handled my case completely from the very first time I spoke with him. I never stressed over any of the medical bills, repair bills or legal issues.
I was involved in an auto accident were a young girl ran a red light hitting my Mercedes broadside on the drivers side. The entire side of my vehicle was destroyed. The paramedics had to remove me from my car and transport me to the hospital. I sustained chest, hand and shoulder injuries. My injuries were not life threatening but the therapy to recover the use of my hand was.
My vehicle repairs were challenged by the insurance company constantly. I never had to deal with them personally. My total repair bill was over 35 thousand dollars. Brian fought to keep them for totaling my car and made sure it was in a good body shop for the repairs. After my vehicle was returned to me, I found additional damage that the estimator and repair shop missed. Again, Brian took care of all these additional charges. These amounted to about 8,000. not in the original repairs.
Mr. Nelson’s office handled all of the billing issues with the insurance companies, hospital, doctors and therapists. There were depositions involved and considerable follow up. All of which was handled very professionally and with no out of pocket expense to me, personally.
I would definitely use Brian again! I have also referred him to a couple of my friends that have needed a good personal injury attorney.
Call him. You won’t be disappointed!

I agree with the other reviews, Brian Nelson is one of the most ethical people I have ever met! His integrity never came into question, I trusted him completely, I felt assured and confident that he was on top of everything, and had my concerns at heart. He really came through for me and I am so grateful for his help.I have since referred him to friends and family, and everyone agrees, Brian is a sharp, hard working attorney-who is trustworthy and genuine!
