As a new high school graduate planning to pursue a legal career, Evan Nielsen was looking at the front end of a very long, exciting and completely unexpected journey. Three states, eight children, five college degrees, and three decades of entrepreneurship later, Nielsen Law Group has established itself as one of the premier tax and legal services entities in the field.
He and his associates have built the Firm based on the best of their experiences. The history of the Firm, and its culture and mission are in the journey as much as the present status quo.
The Firm's emphasis on high standards and customer service emerged from the experiences Evan and the other members of the Firm have had in their own personal lives. Long waits in a doctor's or dentist's office, poor responsiveness on a product return or any of the myriad other poor experiences they've had as customers and clients themselves underscored the need to be different.
Conversely, the positive perception they gained each time customer service experiences were good convinced the group that nothing but the highest standards of excellence and customer service was acceptable for the Firm's clients.
The group's experiences in their own business and start-up endeavors emphasized the need to tailor services to individuals and small businesses.
But their experiences with large businesses left a clear impression on the power of business models, strategic planning and financial rigor - but tailored to the realities of small business budgets and resources.
In the specialized area of tax planning, the Firm's view is founded in the perspective that the "big boys" shouldn't be the only ones to benefit from a favorable corporate tax code.
By employing big-company strategies in a small business setting, the Firm has help hundreds of taxpayers to reduce their tax burden to manageable levels.
There is a clear understanding in the Firm that when someone needs an attorney, they're looking for solutions from a strong advocate and candid advisor.
The Firm's personnel have had far too many experiences themselves where they were treated like a number or just "billable hours" to feel comfortable allowing the Firm's clients to receive anything but the most practical and personal service possible.
The Firm is made up of individuals from a wide variety of professional and personal backgrounds.
In every case, they have experience in non-law related pursuits before joining the firm. Ranging from business and finance to technology and retail to entertainment and service industries.
The result is a Firm focused on providing legal and tax solutions to individuals and small businesses through uniquely proactive, practical and personal service. The group enjoys what they do and while they don't take themselves too seriously, they take their role in assisting you as a very serious matter.
As you work with them, you'll find you're dealing with the best of the best. Be prepared for a uniquely pleasant experience in a normally stodgy and standoffish profession.
