A few years ago myself and our senior citizen group were at the mercy of the Bldg management company of the place we called home …We asked the kind folks at Nielsen, Peterson and Neilson to sit with us and hear our story…We presented our experiences, photos, documents, and other evidence and asked if they would handle our case if there was a case….They said yes and on that day the Angels sang for the senior citizens of our Bldg….The law firm of NPN were kind, compassionate, HONEST, Professional and very accessible to us…We heard from them on a regular basis and were NEVER left in the dark…..If you are having landlord issues and feel helpless these folks might be able to help
