I recently had the pleasure of working with Nick Deets on a personal injury case, and I couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome and the entire experience. From the beginning, he was very professional, compassionate, and dedicated to the case. He took the time to understand the details, provided clear and thorough explanations, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. His expertise and knowledge in personal injury law is impressive. He built a strong case that led to a successful resolution. I felt confident and reassured knowing that I had such a skilled, experienced attorney advocating for me. What stood out most was his genuine care for my well-being. He was not only focused on the legal aspects but also on how I was coping personally. His support extended beyond the case and demonstrated empathy and kindness. Thanks to Nick Deets, I received a very positive result and settlement of the case. It will make a significant difference in my recovery and future. I highly recommend Nick Deets and this firm to anyone in need of top-notch legal representation for personal injury cases. Their dedication, expertise, and heartfelt support make them an outstanding choice.

My wife suffered a very serious car accident where her car was totaled. We went online and did research; based on reviews just like this one looking for the right fit. We needed a savvy professional to represent my wife in her injury claim, we chose Nick Deets to represent our best interests. We have no regrets about our decision to partner with Nick. There is no question that he is extremely knowledgeable and competent regarding his craft. He took the time to prepare, educate and counsel us on how long our case would take and what to expect - things went as scripted to the point where he got exactly what we had expected. There were highs and lows throughout the process but all-in-all Nick handled it with the utmost respect and concern for us. I will definitely recommend Nick to anyone in need of a "Rock Star" attorney - you only need to make one call and it's not to the "Hammer" it should be to Nick Deets of Hovde, Dassow Deets.

I was severely injured by a metal-on-metal hip implant. I needed a lawyer willing and capable to go up against the corporate Goliath, Smith & Nephew. After writing and calling various attorneys across the country who claimed in their TV advertisements to be powerful law firms willing to take on Smith & Nephew, but apparently were too busy to personally talk to me by phone and were unimpressive in their return letters, I became very discouraged. Time is a huge issue with injury-cases like mine. My main concern was finding a lawyer that would not ?rip me off?, waste my time and incompetently ruin my limited opportunity. After hours of research, I found an article about an outstanding victory a law firm had obtained in dealing with the very same medical company that had injured me. I was amazed to learn that the winning law firm, Hovde Dassow & Deets, was located in my own home city of Indianapolis. This proved a God-send. My first meeting with Nicholas Deets restored my hope. I appreciated Nick?s candor as he assessed my case. His confidence seemed quite genuine and I left feeling very encouraged? and counting on him. As he had advised me, I would need to be patient; these things take time. He was right. But in the end, facing a powerful multinational medical-technology company, Nick Deets prevailed as a most EFFECTIVE victor on my behalf. By his skill, resources and experience Nick made particular winning moves? and I was amazed at what he delivered! My settlement exceeded my most hopeful expectation! I am truly grateful to Nick Deets, who proved himself to be a highly capable, trustworthy, outstanding attorney. This is an exceptional law firm. John K.

In February 2019, while walking to Hilbert Theater in downtown Indianapolis for a symphony concert, I was struck by an automobile. My hip was fractured. (The story has a happy ending; my hip was surgically repaired the next day and by the end of 2019 I was walking up to 20 miles a week.) Hovde Dassow+Deets represented me in my claim against the driver of the vehicle and her employer. As a retired lawyer who was a member of the bar for 50 years?although one who worked in a very different practice area during my career?I feel qualified to assess the quality of my representation. The attorney who handled my claim, Nick Deets, was expert in the field of personal injury law, was easy and pleasant to talk with, conveyed in a clear and practical way what I needed to do to protect my claim, was attentative to the case, and negotiated a fair and satisfactory settlement. While I was in the business of recovering from my injury and rehabilitating my hip and leg, it was nice to know an experienced professional was looking out after my legal interests. Gene Lausch

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
