We are unique as a plaintiff's law firm. Attorney, 
Tim Nies, is a military veteran and a proud lifetime supporter of the Disabled American Veterans.  When serving as an Airborne Ranger with the Army's 75th Ranger Regiment, he sustained a line-of-duty knee injury during a parachute mission. He had to work hard to rehabilitate his knee; however, his knee injury ultimately caused his departure from the United States Army. Tim, more than most injury attorneys, knows how it feels to suffer from and overcome a life-altering injury. Tim considers himself lucky as the Army had excellent surgeons and glad the VA was there to help him after his service. Because he was provided with excellent care he was able to regain use of his knee. Unfortunately, others are not so lucky and oftentimes face huge hurdles in obtaining medical care after a serious injury.  

After his military service, Tim began his attorney career defending personal injury cases for insurance companies and large corporations, including Fortune 500 companies. He was a senior Casualty Attorney for Marshall Dennehey, the largest, and arguably, the most respected insurance defense law firm in the world, with more than 450 attorneys.  Here, he honed his skills as a trial attorney and where he learned how insurance companies evaluate and litigate personal injury cases.

Our attorney, Christian Van Riper, was selected as a Law Clerk for the Florida Supreme, which is an honor very few attorneys are selected for. Thereafter, Christian began his legal career as a State Attorney, where he prosecuted countless serious felony cases for the State of Florida. Here, he developed his trial skills, which benefit him today when representing seriously injured clients. The work and life experiences of our attorneys affords our law firm unique and valuable insight into the lives and struggles of our clients, how their cases are defended, and how to effectively try cases to juries. 

Our past experience litigating on the insurance defense for insurance companies gives us credibility with the insurance companies, and our knowledge of how insurance companies evaluate and value cases proves effective during the pendency of cases, at mediation and at trial.   To learn more about our trial lawyers, we invite you to review our individual attorney biographies.

Tim and Christian have known each other most of their lives and work all personal injury cases as a uniquely qualified trial team This approach benefits our clients on two levels. First, both Tim and Christian are extremely familiar with the details of our clients’ cases and are able to collaborate to effectively come up with a litigation and trial plan. Second, our clients are able to speak with an attorney about their cases at any time of the day and night.  We are known for the personal attention we are able to provide to our clients. Our clients are usually pleasantly surprised to be able to speak us after hours and on the weekends. 

Our attorneys represent clients in all personal injury matters, including automobile and truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, premises liability, falls, inadequate security, construction site accidents, swimming pool injuries and drowning, product liability, boating injuries, personal watercraft injuries, Longshore & Harbor Workers’ claims, Defense Base Act claims, cruise ship injuries, crime victim injuries, dog and animal bites, back injuries and wrongful death cases and others. 

Through our Stuart, West Palm Beach, Delray Beach and Deerfield Beach office locations, our attorneys represent clients in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, Okeechobee, Palm Beach & Broward counties. 

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.
