Great Personal Service
We hired David to help us in a dispute with an insurance company following a motor vehicle accident. David and his support team (Marla & Brianna) were very congenial and forthright in our interactions during their handling of our case. David handled recalcitrant insurance representatives with aplomb, and the whole team focused on every pertinent detail of our case. I would not hesitate to hire David again should I have the need, and highly recommend him.

Recommendation of David Nims
David Nims was recommended to my fiance and I from a family friend. In regard to our experience with David, he was professional, always on time, and highly informed and educated in his field of work. Most importantly to us, David continually kept contact with us and responded to emails within hours or in the same day. He showed us that he truly cared for us and our case. He went above and beyond in so many ways. We are grateful for all that David accomplished for us. In respect to our specific case, my fiance was charged with a felony due to an act of self defense. David was able to knock that charge down to a misdemeanor in a short amount of time. David made the entire experience much less stressful for us. It is often daunting when having to decipher through so many potential defense lawyers to choose from to represent you in court. We can say from experience that we were very fortunate in choosing David to represent us. We highly recommend David to anyone who needs an effective defense lawyer in their corner.

Little or no precedent
David accepted my case that lacked little or no precedent for a decision and followed through in a timely and professional manner. In my case we happened to win, but even if we had not his effort to obtain a positive decision was exemplary.
