About Nestor

Learn Nestor’s areas of practice.

Nestor became a lawyer to help others through times of crisis. For over 15 years he has done just that, representing people who have been seriously hurt or lost a loved one. His law practice has been devoted to litigating such claims against large corporations, government entities, and insurance carriers. Representative cases include bicycle, pedestrian, auto, trucking, workplace and premises liability accidents. 

Before going to law school, Nestor competed in national and international bicycle road races. He joined a Dutch racing team to compete throughout Europe, and then raced several seasons as a professional throughout the United States and Australia. International competition provided much more than a foundation of discipline, planning and tactical thinking. It also exposed him to living conditions around the world. Some were inspiring examples of efficiency and equality, others marked by inequality and profound need. Nestor remains focused on those in need, driven by his commitment to individual and social justice.

A tenatious, committed attorney... one of the best!
I was the victim of a serious vehicle collision. I initially hired another law firm for representation. After long delays and excuses, that firm told me that there was nothing more they could do to assist me with my case. In order to find a replacement law firm, I conducted an extensive research of firms, both large and small, hoping to find one which was both willing and able to provide effective representation for me. I ultimately decided to contact Nestor to see if he could assist me. Ultimately, selecting Nestor as my attorney turned out to be the best decision I could have made. Nestor picked up my case where the other firm left off, and within 8 months of assuming my case, we had reached a settlement with the insurance company. This is significant because the firm I had retained prior to Nestor worked on my case for 3 years without a resolution! During my initial consultation with Nestor, I found him to be honest, candid, and realistic about a fair and equitable resolution to my case. In the intervening months between my initial consultation and the final settlement, I found Nestor to be very responsive to me when I had questions or needed information. Additionally, Nestor was extremely diligent in staying on top of my case and aggressively pursuing a resolution to it. I fully believe his diligence and aggressiveness were the factors that led to a expedited resolution of my case....and the fact that the insurance company grew tired of fighting with Nestor! My experience with Nestor is that he is indeed committed to social justice...he truly cares about his clients and how he can assist them during a difficult time in their lives, and help set things right. Nestor's ethics and values set the standard which all attorneys should strive to reach. He is definitely one of the best attorneys out there, in my humble opinion. I would unequivocally say that I would recommend Nestor without reservation. He has my highest respect and admiration for his dedication to the legal profession. He loves the law and the pursuit of justice, and his passion for his chosen profession is clearly evident. You owe it to yourself to speak with will not regret your decision to do so. Thank you again, Nestor...I am still most appreciative and grateful for your assistance.
