Why Choose J. Patrick Nelson, PC

Throughout our careers, the attorneys of The Law Office of J. Patrick Nelson, PC have helped Chicago area clients through some of the hardest moments of their lives. We take our roles seriously — not just as aggressive advocates, but as experienced, compassionate legal counselors. Why do clients choose to work with us?

You want to win your case — and so do we.

As negotiators and litigators, we are aggressive and results driven. Our firm approaches each matter prepared for trial and, unlike some lawyers, we are not afraid of the jury. We certainly recognize the value of strategic settlement, and we advise settlement when it is to a client's advantage. But, by design, we undertake each matter ready to win in the courtroom: examining all the evidence and strengths of a case puts our clients in the best position for both negotiations and litigation; the opposing party becomes well aware that we have left no stone unturned and are not afraid to fight if necessary.

When we say "every client matters," we mean it.

The Law Office of J. Patrick Nelson, PC is a small, boutique firm for a reason: the areas of law in which we practice — criminal defense, divorce, and personal injury claims — affect every aspect of our clients' lives. Whether it involves your children, your freedom, your reputation, or the business you built from the ground up, we understand how important your case is to you. Because we recognize the gravity of what is at stake in each case we handle, we are selective about our clientele and caseload. Every client that hires our attorneys receives personal attention and knows that their interests truly matter to us.

Experience, experience, experience.

Our personal commitment and willingness to go to the mat for our clients would mean little without the experience to back it up. Our attorneys have been well respected members of the Chicago area legal community for a combined period of over 20 years. As seasoned litigators and counselors, you can count on us to advise you on the nuances of the law and prepare your strongest case.
