“Mr. Nelson won my social security appeal case for me. Without his guidance, expertise, professionalism, attention to details, I am certain my chance of the same outcome would have been impossible. Mr. Nelson continued his efforts and stayed on top of my medical records even while I was unresponsive for a period of months. He was unable to locate or reach me yet still kept trying. I am so thankful I found his services when I did, and I recommend his firm highly. Even if my case had been lost, it would not have been at the fault of Nelson law. Five stars! And thank you to you, and Barb for helping me. This literally has felt lifesaving to have happened to me.” – Jennifer, Burnsville, MN

“A customer that came into Walmart told me about Gregg Nelson and gave me his number. I was currently with a different law firm but was not satisfied with them as they would not answer my phone calls so I could get my questions answered. I switched over to Gregg Nelson and had no problems getting ahold of him or him calling me back. We went to work on getting me my Social Security disability and won the case. I would recommend Gregg Nelson to people I know who need a lawyer. He is a good and fair lawyer and works hard for you.” – Neomi, Hastings, MN

“Greetings, I am very pleased and thankful to Mr. Gregg Nelson for taking the extra time to understand and help me with my case. I am a Hmong man, and I do not speak English fluently; so communicating to other lawyers has been very hard. My case was about getting my Social Security disability benefits, which was denied initially. I went to consult with two other lawyers; but due to language and cultural barriers, I lost confidence and hope. I was afraid my case would be dragged on and eventually resulting in losing my case. One of my friends had suggested that I go see lawyer Gregg Nelson and give him a try. I am so grateful that I did. He took the time to listen and understand my situation, assuring me that this case would quickly be resolved. This is exactly what I wanted. I knew Mr. Nelson was the lawyer I need(ed) to win my case. Every time we met to discuss my case, my trust in him grew and I saw how creative and great his ability was. He is truly a one-of-a-kind lawyer. I’m writing to express my gratitude to lawyer Gregg Nelson, who deserves more recognition.” – Cheng, Minneapolis, MN

“Gregg Nelson is the best. Gregg represented me for my Social Security claim for disability benefits. He worked very hard with my workers compensation attorney to ensure that my benefits were properly coordinated. He did a thorough job preparing for the Social Security hearing. I had used another law firm prior and was denied benefits before I hired Gregg Nelson. He did a great job at the hearing, and at the conclusion, the judge issued a fully favorable decision. After the hearing, when my past-due benefits were delayed, Gregg was diligent in providing the Social Security Administration with all of the information they needed for the benefits to be released. My workers compensation claim is still not settled, but Gregg has agreed to go above and beyond to look over the final settlement to make sure my Social Security benefits coordinate with workers compensation in the future. I’m so thankful.” – Nancy, Inver Grove Heights, MN

Thank you Gregg and Barb!” – Nettie, Plymouth, MN

“Dear friends,

There are a lot of capable lawyers out there, but only a few of them that have the will and patience to take your hand walking through obstacles and barriers that are laying in front of you.

My name is Hang. I was injured on my back from my job in September of 2008. I’ve tried hard to continue working to keep my household’s income in a stable shape. Unfortunately, my back condition got worse and worse over the years. I finally turned to Gregg B. Nelson and asked him to represent me to file a claim on Social Security income in mid-2014. With the great skills, experiences, and patience, Mr. Nelson has successfully handled my case and I was approved to receive my Social Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance in January of 2016.

Friends, if you, your relatives, or friends were injured from the job or any other injuries, I highly recommend you to consult with Mr. Nelson. Based on my experience, Mr. Nelson would help you the same as he had helped me.” – Hang, Maplewood, MN

“Gregg represented me in a claim for Social Security benefits. He was very professional and responsive to my questions. He obtained the best medical support available.

I really appreciate the work Gregg and his staff did and the efforts they made, even after the judge denied my claim.” – Bonnie, Cannon Falls, MN
