More About Brett Nelson

Brett Nelson is a respected Texas attorney with three decades of experience representing clients. Clients and peers routinely describe him as an ethical lawyer who is smart, always prepared, and sensitive to the needs and perspectives of others. He has a knack for simplifying and communicating complex legal issues in easy-to-understand concepts for his clients and the court, and by doing so, clients take comfort in knowing what is going on with their cases, what the overall goal is, and that they have someone in their corner zealously advocating for their rights. Meanwhile, opposing counsel sees him as a formidable adversary and someone who represents the profession’s best.

Brett Nelson’s extensive bench and jury trial experience spans many practice areas but has narrowed to civil litigation since moving to Texas — primarily in the context of family law and business representation. His career as a trial lawyer began in 1993 as a judicial law clerk in the 7th Judicial District of Iowa. As a judicial law clerk, he had the unique opportunity to work closely with trial court judges, gain insight into the trial process, and learn — from the judicial perspective — what was important to the Court and lawyer best practices.

He was then hired by a local firm, given his own caseload, and tried his first jury trial (misdemeanor) during the first week at the firm. While at this firm, he tried several jury trials, argued two cases before the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, and argued several cases before the Third District Court of Appeals in Illinois.

In 1997, he opened his own law firm and was blessed to have it grow into one of the area’s preeminent firms. In 2009, he was offered an opportunity to move to Dallas as an inside counsel before eventually transitioning back to the private practice of law. In 2013, he joined Christman, Kelley, & Clarke, P.C. to start and run their family law practice. He worked with the firm for 18 months, building their family law practice into a core revenue stream be-fore starting Nelson Law Group, PC.
