“To those in need of legal assistance, I would like to offer this testimonial on behalf of Chris Nielsen, Esq. and his team. Last August, during a period of poor judgment, I found myself in an unfamiliar situation. For the first time in my life I was in need of a criminal defense attorney. I asked an attorney, who was a friend, for a recommendation. Without a moment’s hesitation he suggested Chris Nielsen. Upon first being interviewed by Chris, it was clear that he was direct and had a great understanding of his area of law. Moreover, he didn’t attempt to make false promises or “sugarcoat” the possible outcomes. He rather stated that my case may be unwinnable. He only promised his best… I have dealt with professionals my entire life and have never been more impressed. The quality of work performed, by him and his staff, was without flaw. He was readily available and eager to respond to my many calls, and always seemed to know exactly what was next. The outcome was a big win for both of us. He protected my career, my reputation, and my honor. Long after the case had been to trial, with a successful conclusion, he was prompt to respond. A small glitch threatened to cause issues for me, and he resolved it expediently. Honor…Integrity…Compassion…and Results…that is what we all need. Call Chris Nielsen.” R.S.
“I just want to personally thank Mr. Nielsen for a job well done!!! Your professionalism and true caring for my case was greatly appreciated. Not only did Chris Nielsen believe in my case but he convinced me to fight it instead of pleading guilty. Chris got my case dismissed for me without me having to take one step into the courtroom. The Nielsen Group has very reasonable pricing and an educated lawyer to help you make the correct decision with your legal matter. I highly recommend The Nielsen Group if you feel you are being taken advantage of or unfairly tried. A great big thanks for bringing my charge to justice and taking care of something that could have affected my professional goals for the next ten years.” B.E.
“I would highly recommend Attorney Nielsen for a criminal matter. We engaged Attorney Nielsen for a criminal citation of my daughter. From the moment I contacted his office we experienced prompt and professional responses. When I discussed the case with him in my initial consultation, he gave me his open advice and described his approach and the possible outcomes. I was very pleased that through his efforts, my daughter’s case was resolved before going to court and in the precise manner Attorney Nielsen had described as the optimal resolution! I could not have been more pleased in what he was able to accomplish as well as for the professionalism and respect he showed during the entire process.” R.M.
“I hired Attorney Chris Nielsen to represent me and challenge a charge of DUI. He laid a solid foundation and preparation for the eventual successful outcome of my case. To call his knowledge of DUI law impressive is an understatement. His confidence and responsiveness put me at ease from day one. I never felt disconnected or in the dark. He answered all my questions in a way that made sense to me; he was candid and thorough in his communications. Given the potential impact a negative result could have had not only on me, but on my family and on my career, I continue to value greatly the fact that I could rely on him and know that he would treat my case as a priority. Other attorneys that I consulted before meeting Attorney Nielsen not only were non-responsive, they gave me clear indications that my case would never be a priority to them. I cannot say enough good things about Attorney Nielsen, but first and foremost, he will always ensure that his clients know they count.” S.M.
