Our trial attorneys provide comprehensive trial services focused on putting our clients in the best possible position for successful outcomes. As a cohesive team, we work closely with our clients to identify their needs and objectives, and then we craft individual legal strategies while remaining available to our clients. Our trial attorneys provide clients with cell phone numbers to call after hours and on weekends because we understand that emergencies are not limited to office hours.

The backgrounds of our lawyers differentiate them from other attorneys in the community. Christian Van Riper is a former prosecutor for the state of Florida. Because he knows how prosecutors try criminal cases, he can create proactive legal strategies for our criminal defense clients. Before becoming an attorney, he was an investigator with the Department of Children and Families (DCF), giving him a unique perspective into not only criminal cases, but also family law and divorce cases.  

Tim Nies, a trial savvy personal injury lawyer and family law attorney is a veteran of the U.S. Army Airborne Rangers and a former insurance company casualty attorney representing Fortune 500 companies. Injured in the line of duty during a parachute mission, Tim worked hard to recover from his physical injuries. His experiences provide him with valuable insight into the daily struggles of people who have been injured due to the carelessness of others. He has a deep understanding of the policies and tactics used by insurance companies. During law school, Tim was a law clerk for a well-known South Florida appellate attorney.

Now as criminal defense, personal injury, divorce and civil litigation attorneys, Tim and Christian use their past experiences to analyze cases using different perspectives. They are able to identify potential issues that may occur with each case and create proactive strategies. If necessary, Tim and Christian will take their clients' cases to trial. That is, after all, what they are hired to do.

At Van Riper and Nies Attorneys, our lawyers work together to provide trustworthy representation that fosters open communication. Whether our client is getting a divorce, is facing criminal DUI charges or has been injured in a car crash, we use our combined experiences to leave no stone unturned and deliver tenacious trial solutions. 

We proudly offers discounted legal fees (20% discount) for honorably discharged veterans.
