"Justice delayed is justice denied..."  

Compassionate, hard-working and dedicated, Van Riper & Nies, a veteran-owned criminal defense law firm, is committed to protecting your legal and constitutional rights.

Christian Van Riper, a former Florida prosecutor and DCF investigator, and Tim Nies, a U.S. Army veteran of the elite 75th Airborne Ranger Regiment, and insurance company casualty attorney, are experienced trial attorneys who care about winning.

We are known by prosecutors, and fellow criminal defense attorneys alike, for leaving no stone unturned when defending our clients' freedom, and for being available, day or night. All our clients have Christian's and Tim's cel phone numbers.

Wouldn't it be comforting to know that you have retained a lawyer who truly cares about you and the well-being of your family, and that you have hired an attorney who will work tirelessly to make sure your legal and constitutional rights are upheld?

Our attorneys are committed to professional service, skilled representation and providing criminal defense services at a reasonable rate. Our attorneys regularly work with clients on easy payment plan arrangements.

When choosing an attorney to represent you, or a loved one, in a criminal case, it is critical to obtain an experienced criminal attorney ASAP.  Delay in retaining a criminal defense attorney may harm your case, and your chances for a favorable resolution. Consulting a qualified criminal defense attorney early on can help protect your freedom and liberty.
