Rush & Nicholson > People > Lawyer, Partner > Gary B. Nelson

“I studied history, languages and philosophy in school. I was very interested in the roles justice, law, liberties, and freedom played in society. I later decided that I wanted to be a lawyer in a legal system that offered the promise of establishing justice and fairness for those who were most in need. The best part of my 25 years of practicing law has been focusing my efforts to help those whom I think have some of the greatest needs: workers injured on the job.”
