Attorney at Law
Just wanted to comment that Greg Nelson did a great job with my case. It went much better then I had anticipated and I was happy with the outcome. He was MUCH more reasonable than about five other attorneys I contacted and he was reasonable about making payments. I would recommend him to anyone if they needed an attorney.—"Relieved"
