I have hired Gary Nelson on more than one occasion, he is a great attorney! He always gets the job done and always surpassing expectations! This is without a doubt the firm to have your back!
Darryn Abben

Far exceeded my expectations. When I first talked to Tony Olson, I felt very comfortable and on the same page that we could get the outcome I wanted. As the next few days/weeks went by I felt better about my lawsuit. I was getting the updates I wanted and just an overall sense that my case was being moved forward to the front of the pile of the defense team. Nothing but good words for Tony Olson at Rush & Nicholson! Thank you!

Matthew Dake was very knowledgeable and helpful in my Workers Comp case. He was always just a phone call away if I had questions or concerns. You only get one chance at it you don’t want a rookie and Matt understands life.
