About Tad Nelson:

Tad Nelson is a native Texan and a lifelong member of the Houston/Galveston area. Mr. Nelson was born onGalveston Island and graduated from the local public high school, Galveston Ball, in 1983. After graduation, Mr. Nelson traveled to Austin to attend the University of Texas.

After graduating from law school, Tad Nelson started his legal career as a State prosecutor for the Galveston County District Attorney's Office under the direct supervision of Michael J. Guarino. Mr. Guarino was elected District Attorney of Galveston County in 1982 and served in that capacity until he stepped down to enter private practice in 2003 after five terms. Tad Nelson was fortunate to serve under Mr. Guarino and served as an Assistant District Attorney from 1992 to 1995. It was during this time that Tad Nelson learned the importance of service and its importance to the community.

In 1995 after a successful career as a prosecutor, Mr. Nelson opened the doors to a different type of law practice. Mr. Nelson wanted to build a unique law firm that was more concerned with a client's well being than the fee the client was generating. Well being does not always just mean getting the client a good deal. Well being means helping the client understand the process, well being means explaining all the obstacles that the client faces, and most of all well being means assuring the client that you are doing all that you possibly to get the client a satisfactory outcome. Tad Nelson has created a unique law firm that provides the client with big city experience and a small town feel.

At Tad Nelson & Associates, we understand the trauma that accompanies being arrested. We understand most people have never had to get a friend or a loved one out of jail, and people do not know what to do in that situation. We also realize the stress and anxiety associated with that first visit to an attorney's office. Usually a prospective client sits in a waiting room surrounded by diplomas and plaques while filling out an information form. Then the client gets invited to an office with more diplomas and certificates and sits across a huge desk from an attorney while they discuss the case. This is all very intimidating. At Tad Nelson & Associates we do all we can to make a prospective client feel both comfortable and confident; and we do our best to alleviate any stress you may have about the uncertainty of the criminal judicial system. In both our Galveston and League City offices, we provide an atmosphere that is more of a home than an office. We allow clients to relax and we encourage them to ask questions until they are satisfied that they understand the road ahead.

How can you tell if a lawyer is concerned about your case more than their bottom-line? When you sit down and talk with them about your case, always note what percentage of the conversation is about the fee you need to pay them. You also look to see what they do outside the office. Are they involved in their community? Do they donate their time and money to make their community a better place to live? Do they do things that help those less fortunate than himself? The reality is; if a lawyer does not care enough about the community he lives in he probably will take the same approach with his clients.

Tad Nelson has been entrenched in his community for many years now. Mr. Nelson has served in numerous capacities throughout Galveston and League City to make his community a better place to live. Mr. Nelson currently holds Position 1 on the League City Council, and he has been a Board member of the Gulf Coast Big Brothers Big Sisters since 1999 and is currently serving as President. Mr. Nelson is active in the Galveston Rotary Club and the League City Lions Club. He is also a sponsor for Bowl for Kids Sake, Meals on Wheels yearly Christmas funds drive, The Yagas Wild Game Dinner, and The Village Fair.

Tad Nelson's involvement in his community is an indication of how he will approach his involvement in your case. If you are looking for a Law Firm that will take the time and the interest in your case, call Tad Nelson & Associates.
