Delray Beach Trial Lawyers


"Justice is the firm and continuous desire to render to everyone that which is due"

Our attorneys are known for their tenacious litigation courtroom experience and open communications with our clients.

Van Riper & Nies Attorneys, P.A., a veteran-owned law firm, represents individuals and families in Delray Beach who have suffered an injury, or lost loved ones, due to the carelessness or recklessness of others.  We are known for leaving no stone unturned in the prosecution of injury claims for our clients.

We are a unique law firm. Our partner, Tim Nies, is a U.S. military veteran, having served as an Airborne Ranger with the Army's elite 75th Ranger Regiment. After his military service, Tim began his attorney career defending personal injury cases for insurance companies and large corporations, including Fortune 500 companies. He was a senior Casualty Attorney for Marshall Dennehey, the largest, and arguably, the most respected insurance defense law firm in the world, with more than 450 attorneys

Firm partner, Christian Van Riper, is a polished and talented trial attorney. For years after law school, where he graduated at the top of his class, Christian prosecuted and tried serious felony and DUI cases for the State of Florida as an Assistant State Attorney. Prior to that, he was a Law Clerk for the Florida Supreme Court, which is an honor very few law students and attorneys are selected for, and prior to that an investigator for Florida's Department of Children and Families.

The work and life experiences of our attorneys afford our law firm unique and valuable insight into the lives and struggles of our injured clients and how insurance company lawyers defend personal injury cases. Our past experience litigating for large insurance companies gives us credibility with the insurance companies, and our knowledge of how insurance companies evaluate and value cases proves effective during the pendency of cases, at mediation and at trial.   

Tim and Christian, who have known each other most of their lives, work all personal injury cases as an 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. We are available for our clients day and night.

Tim and Christian represent clients in all personal injury matters, including: motor vehicle crashes, premises liability claims, slip and fall claims, boating injuries, dog and animal bite claims, Longshore claims, Defense Base Act claims, wrongful death claims, product liability cases and all other personal injury claims.

All our injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not take a fee or charge any costs unless we win.
