Before establishing the Law Office of Richard M. Nelson, Nelson garnered his law degree from Nova Southeastern University Law School, where he served as a law review editor and as a Goodwin Research Fellow. After passing the Florida Bar, he practiced insurance defense as a lawyer at two Miami law firms. Following a period as the proprietor of his own Hollywood, Florida, law office, Richard Nelson spent over a decade in insurance defense as the regional managing attorney in Florida for Bristol West Insurance Company (today, Farmers Insurance) and as the managing attorney for GEICO. This experience provided him with insights into the thinking and strategies of both parties litigating insurance claims, which allows him to assist clients better as a plaintiff's attorney at his present firm.
