"Justice is the firm and continuous desire to render to everyone that which is his due..."

Van Riper & Nies relies on hard work, open communication, and trust in bringing justice to clients...

Van Riper & Nies Attorneys, a military veteran-owned law firm with offices in West Palm Beach, Stuart, Jensen Beach and Deerfield Beach, represent individuals and families who have suffered an injury, or lost loved ones, following a crime. Our motto is that we leave no stone unturned in the prosecution of injury claims on behalf of victims of crimes.

Our trial attorneys, a former criminal prosecutor and a former insurance company trial attorney, are uniquely qualified and devoted to assisting crime victims.


According to a recent study, the costs of crime, including medical costs, government costs, inmate housing, court costs, wages losses, stolen property, security measures, etc., according to a recent study, are nearly Two Trillion Dollars every year. An incredible 3% of all healthcare expenses in the U.S. are related to crimes. In additional to emotional trauma, pain and suffering and loss of capacity for enjoyment of life, costs to individual victims of crimes include medical care, mental health care, hospitalization, loss of time from work, loss of property, among others.


Our trial attorneys fight hard to obtain justice in civil cases relating to injuries and other damages sustained due to crimes. It is our job to hold criminals 100% answerable for their actions, as well as other parties whose negligence led to the commission of crimes.


Our attorneys represent victims who sustained injuries and other damages from the following types of crimes, among others:


-       Assault,

-       Robbery,

-       Sexual Battery or Rape,

-       Child Abuse,

-       Child Neglect,

-       Stalking,

-       Domestic Battery or Domestic Violence,

-       Kidnapping or False Imprisonment,

-       Murder and Attempted Murder,

-       Manslaughter,

-       Vehicular Homicide,

-       Drunk Driving,

-       Elder Abuse,

-       Bullying,

-       Negligent or Inadequate Security,

-       Crimes of Fraud,

All our personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not take a fee or charge any costs unless we win.
