What Our Clients Say

I reached out to Nelson Personal Injury after being in an automobile accident. Matt and Tammy were very professional and thorough with my case. I was able to focus on healing while they navigated multiple claims. They truly care for their clients. If I ever have the opportunity, I would recommend and trust them to help navigate the legal process.

Nelson Personal injury helped me with a dog bite for my son. Matt Nelson listened to my concerns and kept me informed on what the next step would be every step of the way. He was easy to talk to and explained things I didn’t understand with out fluster. He asked me what my expectations was and delivered exceptionally and exceeded my expectations...

~ Jessica Turner

I had Matt Nelson & his father represent me. My case was difficult and filled with opposing lawyers from several insurance firms trying to intimidate us. Nelson law never backed down nor allowed me to feel alone. They treated me like I was their only case! Then my daughter was in an accident & they did for her like they did for me! I recommend Nelson Law 100%!!

~ Minnesota Liz

I was given Matt’s firm information from a family friend after my daughter and I were in a horrific car accident. Matt and Tammy handled all the insurance paperwork and worked hard to get myself and my daughter what we needed. I was able to relax and recover knowing my case was in good hands. It also didn’t take as long as I thought it would to get a solution....
