Christian Van Riper

"Justice is the firm & continuous desire to render to everyone that which is due"


Van Riper & Nies relies on personal attention, open communication, hard work and trust in bringing justice to injured clients...

We represent individuals and families who have suffered an injury, or lost loved ones, due to the carelessness or reckless of others.  We are known by our clients, and defense attorneys alike, for leaving no stone unturned in the prosecution of injury claims. 

We are unique as a plaintiff's law firm. Our attorney, Tim Nies, is a military veteran of the Army's elite 75th Ranger Regiment and a proud lifetime supporter of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV). 

When serving as an Airborne Ranger, Tim sustained a line-of-duty knee injury during a parachute mission.  Tim had to work hard to rehabilitate his knee; however, the injury ultimately caused his medical discharge from the United States Army. Tim, more than most personal injury attorneys, knows how it feels to suffer from and overcome a life-altering injury. Tim was lucky the U.S. Army had excellent surgeons and glad the VA was there to help him. Others are not so lucky.  After his military service, Tim began his legal career defending personal injury cases for insurance companies and large corporations, including Fortune 500 companies. He was a senior casualty insurance defense trial attorney for Marshall Dennehey, the largest, and arguably, the most respected insurance defense law firm in the world, with more than 450 attorneys. 

Firm partner,
Christian Van Riper, a lifelong resident of Stuart, and a former Department of Children & Families (DCF) state investigator, was selected out of law school as a Law Clerk for the Florida Supreme Court; an honor very few attorneys in the State of Florida are selected for. Thereafter, Christian began his legal career as a prosecutor, where he prosecuted and tried multiple serious felony cases out of the State Attorney's Office in St. Lucie County.  With a caseload in the 100s, Christian was able to hone his jury trial skills and ability to think and work under incredible pressure and time constraints.

The work and life experiences of our trial attorneys afford our law firm unique and valuable insight into the lives and struggles of our clients, how their cases are defended, and with trial experience right here in the Treasure Coast.  Our past experience representing insurance companies gives us credibility with insurance companies, and our knowledge of how
insurance companies evaluate and value cases proves effective during the pendency of injury cases, at mediation and at trial.   To learn more about our trial lawyers, we invite you to review our individual attorney biographies.

Tim and Christian have known each other most of their lives and litigate and try all personal injury cases as an effective trial team.  This approach benefits our clients on two levels. First, both Tim and Christian are extremely familiar with the details of all our clients’ cases and are able to collaborate to effectively come up with a litigation and trial plan. Second, our clients are able to speak with an attorney about their cases at any time.  We are known for the personal attention we are able to provide to our clients. Our clients are usually pleasantly surprised to be able to speak us after hours and on the weekends.

Our attorneys represent clients in all personal injury matters, including automobile and truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, premises liability, falls, inadequate security, construction site accidents, swimming pool injuries and drowning, product liability, boating injuries, personal watercraft injuries, Longshore & Harbor Workers’ claims, Defense Base Act claims, cruise ship injuries, crime victim injuries, medical malpractice, dog and animal bites, back injuries and wrongful death cases, among other.

We proudly offer discounted legal fees for military veterans, active/reserve service-members, law enforcement officers and EMS personnel. Instead of the 33% contingency fee usually charged by law firms for cases prior to a complaint being filed, we offer 10% contingency legal fees. This discount can be substantial. 

All our personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not take a fee or charge any costs unless we win.
