Who We Are

Attorneys Deborah Nelson and Jeff Boyd have over 50 years of combined legal experience representing injured people and suing insurance companies on behalf of policyholders. Having worked both as partners in law firms and as solo practitioners, we joined forces to form our own unique law firm. With a focus on personalized service designed to take care of the unique needs of each client, we strongly believe in building a relationship with the individuals we represent and protect.

At Nelson Boyd, we realize that hiring an attorney is one of the most important decisions you must make when you’ve suffered an injury or when your insurance company won’t pay what it owes you. Your legal rights and financial interests are entirely dependent on the ability of your attorney to effectively negotiate and litigate on your behalf, and it is important to have representation you can trust.

There are many factors to consider when hiring an attorney:

  • Experience with cases like yours
  • Willingness to listen to you, answer your questions and give you sound advice
  • A commitment to pursuing justice, including taking your case to trial if it’s necessary

We pride ourselves on providing personalized service. Some law firms focus on volume and accept every client who contacts them, focusing on the number of cases rather than individual cases. These law firms often employ a business model where a paralegal, rather than an attorney, does most of the work and you rarely hear from your attorney. We screen cases carefully and accept only those which our expertise and experience match the needs and goals of our clients. We realize that our clients are our customers, and want to provide great customer service and work collaboratively as a team to find the best solutions to their problems.

At Nelson Boyd, we understand that you have only one case and that this case is important to you.

Jeff Boyd has tried over 100 civil jury trials to verdict, and fully understands what is required to take litigation all the way through the trial process in order to obtain fair compensation for his clients. A recognized expert and trial consultant who tries cases and teaches other lawyers how to try cases, he is the president of Boyd Trial Consulting, a member of the American Society of Trial Consultants, conducts focus groups, and is a “trial coach” for other attorneys. Clients of Nelson Boyd benefit from Jeff’s expertise because they not only have a trial consultant as their lawyer, but they also do not have to pay additional fees for Jeff to conduct a focus group, if necessary, on their case.

Deborah Nelson is a past president of the Washington Association for Justice (formerly the Washington State Trial Lawyers Association), is a past chair of the Insurance Law section of the American Association for Justice and has been named a Super Lawyer each year since 2003. She is active in her local and national trial lawyer organizations and has spoken locally, nationally, and internationally to lawyers on a wide variety of insurance, brain injury, legal malpractice, and jury trial skills. She derives the most satisfaction in the relationships she develops with her clients and is honored to represent them during the most difficult times in their life.

Deborah Nelson and Jeff Boyd bring combined resources and talents to the table that suit virtually any personal injury need. As a full service law firm, our goal is to take care of each client and help them pursue the full and fair compensation they need for their losses after an injury.
