Nathan has represented individuals accused of criminal offenses ranging from minor speeding tickets to capital murder since 2003. Although the consequences and strategies differ in each case, his approach remains the same. In order for the client-lawyer relationship to be successful, there must actually be a relationship. It must be a relationship where the client feels comfortable and confident that their lawyer truly cares about their case. Secondly, there is no substitute for preparation. There is no consistent way for an attorney to reach the best possible result unless he takes the time and steps necessary to be fully prepared in each and every case. Finally, an attorney must be open to negotiating, but willing and able to aggressively litigate for his client. Nathan uses this approach to reach the best possible result for his clients.

Great value, knows what he’s doing and got me out of a hard situation with ease. Called and talked to him 1 time, paid him and he got it done for me. Best lawyer in Jacksonville County hands down

I can hardly express how glad I am to have chosen Nathan to represent us. My fiance was in some fairly serious trouble and Nathan has worked miracles to get him home. His assistant Ryan has become like a family friend to us. She is so supportive and encouraging. This has been a terribly stressful and scary situation and without them on our side it would have been far worse. I chose Nathan because there were so many reviews saying how good of a person he is- and he is! And he is also an AMAZING attorney. I struggled in deciding whether or not to hire someone and if so, who. I am so glad I chose Nathan Earwood.

Nathan and his team took care of my ticket with late notice, and I was very pleased with their services! Nathan was able to take care of my situation, even with me being out of town and with less than 4 days notice. I would recommend his service and or at least a call to his office to see what he can do for you.
