Late one night I found myself in a rather embarrassing and unusual situation. The police were at my door. They claimed that someone had called in a report that I was growing marijuana (which was untrue) and they were pushing to search my garage apartment. This was of course insane, but I would not allow a search without a warrant. Lots of guests had stayed in the garage apartment, and I didn't know what might be out there. I knew for a fact that some college kids had been smoking grass in there, so I figured there might be some. I was right. That is exactly what they found, a couple of joints worth, and I was arrested that night on a misdemeanor.

So, I called Tad Nelson that evening while the cops were at my door. He called me right back. He was responsive and knowledgeable. He advised me to make them get a warrant, and he further told me what could be done for me if any marijuana was found. Basically, because I knew the outcome of what would probably happen well in advance with any case that might be filed on me, I relaxed and kept my composure, and sure enough, he was exactly right, and he got my case handled before it was even filed.

What a great lawyer. He was very well informed, well connected, and he guided me through the process of getting my case dismissed with a little hard work and his legal negotiations. I realize that everyone might not get this result, but I did, and Tad Nelson is the reason. I later learned that he was also well thought of in the community, and no doubt well liked by the district attorney, with whom he met and worked out a deal that involved a little community service and some things, but this is so much better than what might have happened if not for Tad. If I had simply waited, I would not have been able to tell the police that I was represented that night (and they also knew Tad and had great respect for him), and my case would have been filed in the court system which has all kinds of implications. Since I had Tad on my side, the Police treated me with great respect and kindness, although they had to do their job, and my case was handled efficiently and to my satisfaction.

Sometimes when you hire a lawyer you get one that's too busy, or just doesn't care, or is only in it for the money. Tad Nelson is different. He seems to do this because he really loves it.
I hope to never need another criminal lawyer, but if I do, I will call Tad, and I will recommend anyone that asks to call him and put him on the case.

Tad came referred from many family, friends and colleagues when I was battling a felony charge. This team is both diligent and experienced with a keen ability to apply the laws as they were meant to be applied and to hold the officers of the law liable for failing to appropriately enforce it. I was consistently reassured by their confidence and ability to understand the judicial process while seamlessly providing clear and concise counsel. It is difficult to face charges after experiencing a complete disregard to proper procedure; and you begin to question if officers truly are above the law. I believe the degree of dedication displayed by this office has the potential to produce a more substantial and honest justice system simply by demanding accountability on behalf of the system. They are the perfect mix of strictly business; down to earth; and exceptional instinct to create a dynamic team of defense. I would recommend anyone needing a strong defense to obtain this team of extraordinary individuals to defend you. Mr. Nelson has a unique way of representing his client as an individual with individual circumstances. It was apparent that even the prosecution was in awe of Tad's abilities and superior understanding of the proper application of the law. He is able to aggressively address issues while maintaining respect for the court; and appropriately objects to improper practices of the court while keeping his composure (traits not demonstrated by all individuals of the court). Mr. Nelson exhibits strength coupled with integrity. Tad and Amber have a very firm and deep understanding of the science involved as well, fully comprehending the state's chemist and breaking it down to an understandable level while crushing them at the same time. I can not speak highly enough of this office. I can only thank them for the services they provide.See MoreRead Less"

This was one of my favorite cases ever. It was a blast challenging the bad science of the State chemist. What this tells you is that a .235 is not always a .235. Big win for the defense for a great client!

I have know Tad Nelson for a very long time as an active member of the Community . I know about some of the legal cases he has been involved in from other members of the law profession. I have been told me he comes to court well prepared and stands firm and never gives up the fight for his clients. I also know of some cases he has taken , because he knew the family was not being treated fairly and did not have the means to hire a professional to help them. I believe Tad Nelson is a good representative for his profession. I have never needed Tad for legal advise, but I would use him if I did.See MoreRead Less"

My name is Sylvia Boggess and I am an American citizen who moved to Cairo, Egypt two years ago to teach at The American International School. I plan to live here two more years after this school year if everything works out the way that I want it to. Tad is the best lawyer in the Galveston/Houston area and the lawyer that I always turn to first when I am in need of one. If I need a lawyer for an area that he does not work in he always gives me the name of someone that will be able to help me also. I like this about him also. Tad is a good hearted man and I believe that says it all.See MoreRead Less"

I have complete respect for Tad Nelson. He understands good people get in bad situations, sometimes being completely innocent and deserving of the BEST representation possible. Late night meetings, out if office chats, made me feel like this guy cares and has my best interest at heart. It does not hurt that he is all about winning either! He will allow your opinions but then will quickly get you on track, back to the facts of what really matters. A NASA employee friend described Tad as "A bull dog that you want on your team!"See MoreRead Less"

I've known Tad for many years, and he has always been a person of the utmost integrity as well as easily approachable to meet, or do business. I've had the opportunity to seek his professional counsel through the years on more than one occasion. (the one time that I didn't heed his solid advice, it was much to my dismay) Tad is a passionate attorney with excellent judgement, and sold guidance, that relieves his clients from being burdened with worry over their legal issue.See MoreRead Less"

I have known Tad Nelson for over 15 years, and have referred to him many of my family law clients who are in need of a criminal defense attorney. I have always gotten positive feedback from those clients, and will continue to refer him criminal cases. In addition, i have had him as an opposing counsel in many family law cases, and have always found him to be fair and trustworthy, as well as a worthy opponent. I highly recommend Tad Nelson.See MoreRead Less"

There in a line in a movie, where someone who needs an attorney says "being a good attorney means knowing what questions to ask, but also what questions not to ask".. This makes me think of Tad. He is a well informed, on the ball attorney who is trustworthy. In my dealings with Tad, he did what he said and deliverd. He is motivated and conscientious. I have confidence in his decisions, opinions, and methods.See MoreRead Less"

I met Tad at a Forensic Science seminar in Chicago. I was very impressed with his knowledge. What was more surprising was that he had a level of knowledge comparable to seasoned forensic chemists. Tad's knowledge in DNA testing, Forensic Chromatography, and Forensic Solid Drug Dose Analysis, in addition to his education background in toxicology, put him at the top of his game and a leader in criminal defense.See MoreRead Less"
