If you are facing prosecution for a criminal charge, the decisions you make now can literally affect the rest of your life. The strength of your defense should be assessed by an attorney who fully understands the unique facts of your case and who knows how the law applies to your circumstances. Only then can you make the critical decisions that will affect your future.

The Firm’s core belief is that each client comes to us with a unique set of circumstances. This includes not only the factual circumstances which may have resulted in the client’s arrest, but also the client’s life history and experiences.

Nellie L. King believes that knowing who her client is before she walks into the courtroom is key to representing the client’s position to the judge or jury. The Firm also believes the role of the criminal defense attorney is to obtain the best possible result for her clients. Advocacy offered by the Firm can include; early-phase representation, wherein evidence is brought to the government which persuades the prosecution not to file charges at all or to file lesser charges, efforts to suppress evidence if law enforcement has violated the rights of an accused via an unlawful search or seizure, for example, mitigation work in the areas of mental health or substance abuse issues and jury trial representation when it is necessary to obtain a result which confirms that a client is not guilty of the charges leveled against them.

The Firm’s office is centrally located downtown West Palm Beach, although Ms. King also handles matters in various state and federal courts throughout the United States.
