I have nothing but the most positive things to say about the Law Offices of Jerry Nicholson. Jerry represented my adult child in a serious situation and got the best result we ever could have imagined! Jerry was professional, prepared, reliable, with excellent communication, knowledgeable, experienced, and his expertise was enhanced by the fact that he had been a prosecutor for many years. Therefore, Jerry could anticipate all the possible strategies that the prosecutor might enlist, and counter them before they became an issue. I would give Jerry a 5 star review, without hesitation! I would whole-heartedly recommend him and his services!

My wife was ticketed by a police sting on grub hub drivers delivering alcohol. This was a misdemeanor charge. They used a dummy minor (17 years old, but he looked like he was in his 20's. This guy was buffer than any 17 year old Id ever met.) We hired Jerry and Julissa. A couple months later, they got the DA to dismiss the charge in a special hearing before the arraignment. My wife was out of the country during the hearing, while Jerry and Julissa were handling everything. They were always quick to respond to any questions we had. We also want to mention that it brought us great comfort to know that Jerry was a former DA for many years and was able to give us insight into what to expect, and with superb accuracy too. We are more than happy to recommend Jerry and Julissa as your criminal defense! Thank you Jerry and Julissa!

I never thought I would need to hire an attorney so when the CHP gave my daughter a suspected DUI I didn't know what to do. I knew I needed a great attorney but who??? I started my research and took down tons of notes but still wasn't sure on who to choose, there are so many attorneys. Thank goodness my best friend recommended hiring Jerry Nicholson!! His extensive knowledge and reasonable price won me over. The whole process took almost a year to get resolved but we got the best verdict we could hope for thanks to Jerry. He took complete charge and handled everything in a professional manner. His staff is awesome and a efficient. Hopefully I wont need an attorney anytime soon but if I do Jerry's number will be on speed dial!!

Jerry and Julissa are the best legal team in Long Beach! They took care of my entire legal matter without me needing to do a thing. Julissa is always there to answer any questions you may need and Jerry will call you with updates you along the way. Thank you Jerry!

Jerry is one of the best lawyers in Southern California! He handled my legal matter with great skill and professionalism. We started with a consultation meeting that was absolutely free, then Jerry and Julissa, his talented legal assistant, went to work on my case. Jerry is highly respected throughout the SoCal court community, and he worked hard to resolve my case in the best manner possible. Jerry has been successfully winning cases for more than 40 years, and I highly recommend him if you ever need legal assistance.

Jerry is your go to criminal lawyer!! I was charged with something that would have ruined my life. The first time I met him for our consultation, he explained everything to my mother and I in detail on what can happen and what he plans to do to help me. After meeting with him I left feeling at ease. I knew right then and there I picked the right lawyer to stand for my defense. Jerry is very professional and know how to communicate well in court. You can tell he's respected as well. And he knows how it works the Long Beach Court. I was going to be charged with a felony and he was able to speak to the DA and drop it down to a misdemeanor. And he got me my daughter back. He believed in me and knew I needed his help and that's exactly what he did for me. I can tell he worked very hard on my case. Ive has bad experience's with lawyers, but Jerry made that insecurity go away. Jerry has an assistant, Julissa. Julissa thank you so much for keeping me informed about EVERYTHING! Any questions I had she always responded right away. It was never difficult to get ahold of Jerry because of Julissa. Thank you Julissa for all your hard work as well! Jerry thank you so so much!
