    I came to Mr Brinkerhoff with high expectations based on his reviews and his expertise on tenant, landlord matters. I was very satisfied with our decision on how to best handle the matter. My expectations were met and he will be my go to Attorney. Highly recommend!

    I hired this attorney for an eviction matter. Not only did i have to show him under which codes the landlord violated my rights but he was shocked when I won. Then had the audacity to demand more money for it. This man thinks small and should seriously conciser retiring.

    Nelson F. Brinckerhoff’s response: “In all fairness, we won the case and we were able to get my client back about $1,650 and moving costs in rent after a trial. I met with the client on a friday and had a trial on Monday. in which I worked with her and the landlord to come up with a resolution. Negotiations failed, so we had a trial that took all morning. Based on the outcome and time involved, I am surprised at her response, but am happy with the results she got. It's not as easy as it seems. Additionally, my client did not want an eviction on her record, which we also achieved., Getting the best result in front of a judge and trying to meet your client's objectives takes tact and on-the-spot judgment. I feel I did a good job for her and then some and charged accordingly. I always try my hardest for my clients. I guess you can't please everyone. I wish her good luck in the future.”Edit your response

    I hired Nelson Brinckerhoff to assist me in a tenant eviction case that had dragged on for over a year due to my inexperience with the legal nuances involved in landlord tenant law. He went considerably out of his way to meet me at a time and place that was convenient for me and get the case details. He was very responsive by phone and email throughout the process and helped me resolve the case quickly. I highly recommend him as an attorney.

    Nelson is a great attorney and a great person. I had trouble deciding if I wanted to file bankruptcy or not and kept him hanging for a couple months. Then I had issues with my landlord and needed to file immediately. Not only did Nelson fit me in to his busy schedule he also straightened out my landlord problems. He did it all so quickly and efficiently it was amazing. And, he knew I was in a tough place and was very helpful and was reasonable...

    He was very helpful and actually listened to the specifics of the case. Didn't try to sell me a Cadillac when all I needed was a simple document drafted as a precaution. Definitely someone who I'll be contacting for future eviction cases should the need arise.

    Highly recommended.

  • Child support modification.

    5.0 stars

    Posted by anonymous 

    I was a client of Nelson brinkerhoff. I am satisfied with outcome. Nelson got our child support reduced and help with visitation rights that are still being legitimized.

    Nelson F. Brinckerhoff’s response: “They originally all lived in another state. He moved to a third state while the mother and children moved to Rhode Island. I was able to coordinate the entire change of jurisdiction and get his child support cut in half. I am happy with the results.I achieved for him.”

    When dealing with a recent lease modification at the request of my landlord, I hired Mr. Brinckerhoff to consult with me on the best course of action. After his consultation, I was able to negotiate several benefits in my lease modification. While I had my own thoughts on what was fair, Mr. Brinckerhoff's experience and advice helped me come to a solution that worked out to our benefit and was fair to my landlord.. I would recommend his counsel.

    Mr. Brinckerhoff is my attorney for a child support/visitation case and has been a great help. He's been very aggressive in representing me as a client. So far, he has cut my child support in half, gotten me more visitation with my daughter and has overall successfully countered all of the unreasonable demands made by my daughters mother. Also, I had a previous attorney for this case and he was a waste of time and money. Mr. Brinckerhoff...

    Anonymous review posted on 

    I met with Mr. Brinckerhoff because of all the positive reviews I read on here. While I did not spend an extensive amount of time with him, I feel it's important to share my experience with prospective clients. First of all, Mr. Brinckerhoff was not up front about his consultation fee. After our 45 minute meeting (most of which was me talking, followed by him thinking out loud and scribbling on papers) I was whacked with a full $200 fee. While...

    More Nelson F. Brinckerhoff’s response: “With all due respect, this client came to my office 1/2 hour late, listened as I analyzed his landlord and tenant situation for almost an hour and recommended a course of action in a potentially tricky situation, and then argued down my usual fee, and actually left the office without paying me anything until he came back and paid me his own set fee, which I could not make a living on as an hourly fee. I'm sorry he ever called me. I charged him my regular hourly fee, gave him good advice, and was treated poorly. I would interact with a client exactly the same way in the future. He obviously has no experience with lawyers, for better or worse. I wish him the best in resolving his legal situation. He stated that he came to me because of all my good reviews. Well, as the song goes, you can't please everyone.”Edit your response

      I hired attorney Brinckerhoff to handle my bankrupcy proceedings. I found him to be very knowledgable and honest. My paperwork was filled without any problems. He kept me informed every step of the way. I am vision impaired and Mr Brinckerhoff even gave me ride to the court appearance. 
      The whole process took about 3 months and attorney Brinckerhoff oversaw every detail. I would recommend his services to friends and family

      I am a client of Nelson and he filed articles of incorperation for me. He also drafted the commercial lease agreement between my business and our landlords. He was clear, concise and knowledgeable. He was also very flexible with my odd schedule. I recommend Nelson to others searching for leagal cousal.

      I hired Nelson to help me move my child support order from MA to RI as well as help adjust the amount owed due to new circumstances. Nelson had the same mindset that I had which was to make this a fair and expedient process. Everything went very smoothly and he was even able to help me avoid a court appearance. I was also very pleased with his reasonable pricing.

      Anonymous review posted on 

      I went to Nelson seeking help from credit card companies hounding me . The credit card companies had increased my rate and lowered my credit limit. I tried to deal with the companies on my own to no avail. Nelson stepped in and spoke to each company and I settled at a great discount. After a short period of time my credit score returned to favorable and I can now get loans if needed.

      Nelson recently assisted the family in closing out a somewhat complicated estate with loose ends. He did a lot of leg work and kept me (as the appointed contact) informed throughout the whole process. He was clear on what was needed so I could, in turn, provide him with the tools to carry out the mission. He was also there when it came time to sell the house. It was mostly 'painless'. I would recommend Nelson.
