Mr. Nield's extensive legal career commenced with the law firm of Tuverson and Hillyard in 1987. There, his practice was primarily focused in the areas of personal injury and professional liability defense as well as insurance coverage. Thereafter, he became a longtime partner in the firm of DiCaro, Nield and Coppo, again focusing his practice in the areas of medical and dental malpractice defense, personal Injury, correctional law and construction law. Mr. Nield returned as a partner to Kramer, DeBoer, Endelicato & Keane (formerly Tuverson & Hillyard) where he continued his practice in those same areas. With his wide ranging trial experience and knowledge, Mr. Nield founded the Nield Law Group, APC, in May of 2008. He continues to practice in the areas of medical and dental malpractice and personal injury, construction and correctional law, including representing the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and its staff in various legal matters. Having tried numerous cases to successful jury verdicts, he is an experienced trial attorney which has earned him the honor of admission into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). Having practiced in the defense arena, Mr. Nield brings a well rounded approach to his practice by being able to anticipate all sides of a particular matter, whether plaintiff or defense. His ability to “see the whole playing field” is certainly a plus for clients of the Nield Law Group.
