Letter of thanks...

Attorney Nielsen and I have helped quite a few clients over the past few years with some rather serious charges ranging from OUI to Aggravated Drug Trafficking. While all of our clients have expressed appreciation for the work we've done and the battles we've fought for them, rare is the client who memorializes their appreciation in a letter. A few weeks ago, Attorney Nielsen received a letter from a client thanking him for the hard work he did on his case.

Just wanted to write you and thank you formally for everything you did involving my case. I also appreciate how quickly you sent that check out to me. I was very pleased with your representation of me and how professional and courteous you were in all aspects of the case. Again thanks for everything and keep up the good work.



When this client first came to our Office, he was facing some serious charges. He'd been charged with aggravated assault and reckless conduct in a case that carried quite a bit of media coverage. Another young man had been injured and our client was accused of causing the injury.  He spoke with a few different attorneys about his case and ultimately retained our Firm. Attorney Nielsen brought in outside professional services in the form of a private investigator. The PI tracked down all of the witnesses, spoke with the investigating officers and uncovered additional witnesses that weren't disclosed by or known to the State. As a result of Attorney Nielsen's efforts and the information gleaned by the PI, Attorney Nielsen convinced the District Attorney to dismiss the case. As a result, the State never pursued indictment. This type of case is an excellent example of why you should get an attorney involved in your case immediately after arrest. A good attorney should have the staff and investigative resources available to track down witnesses and exculpatory evidence that may not be available or has faded from memory if too much time passes. A good attorney may be able to mitigate charges, negotiate favorable plea agreements or begin building a solid defense if he's able to bring all of his legal resources to bear early on in your case. If you've been charged with a crime, call the attorneys of NIELSEN & BLY now.
