Experienced, hard-working & dedicated, Van Riper & Nies attorneys are committed to protecting your rights.

Van Riper & Nies represents individuals and families who have suffered an injury, or lost a loved one, due to the carelessness or recklessness of others.  We leave no stone unturned in the prosecution of our clients' injury claims.   

We are a unique law firm. One of our partners, Tim Nies, is a military veteran and a proud lifetime member of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV). When serving as an Airborne Ranger with the 75th Ranger Regiment, a, U.S. special forces unit, he sustained a line-of-duty knee injury during a parachute mission, which required multiple surgeries to repair. Tim fought hard to get his life back together and was fortunate to be accepted to law school shortly after his recovery.  Tim, more than most personal injury attorneys, knows how it feels to sustain and overcome a life-altering injury. After the Army Rangers, Tim began his attorney career defending personal injury cases for insurance companies and large corporations, including Fortune 500 companies, where he learned the workings of insurance companies.  

Our other firm partner, Christian Van Riper, was selected as a Law Clerk for the Florida Supreme, which is an honor only a few attorneys are selected for. Thereafter, Christian began his legal career as a prosecutor for the State of Florida, where he tried countless serious felony cases out of the State Attorney's St. Lucie County office in Fort Pierce. 

Our attorneys experiences affords our personal injury law firm valuable insight into the struggles of our clients face after serious injuries, how their cases are defended, and important trial experience right here in St. Lucie county. 

Our past experience on the insurance defense side also gives us credibility with the insurance companies, and our knowledge of how insurance companies evaluate and try injury cases proves effective during the pendency of injury cases, during negotiations and at trial.   To learn more about our trial lawyers, we invite you to review our individual attorney biographies.

Tim and Christian are cousins and have known each other most of their lives. They litigate and try all personal injury and wrongful death cases as a close-knit and effective trial team.  This approach benefits our clients on two levels. First, both Tim and Christian are extremely familiar with the details of our clients’ cases and are able to collaborate to effectively come up with a litigation and trial plan. Second, our clients are able to speak with an attorney about their cases at any time of the day and night.  We are known for the personal attention we are able to provide to our clients. Our clients are usually pleasantly surprised to be able to speak us after hours and on the weekends.
