David C. Nelson, Esq. – NLO Nelson Law Office

July 10, 2023


David C. Nelson, Esq., founder of NLO Nelson Law Office, offers Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy services, as well as estate planning and real estate counsel to clients in Illinois. Active in the bankruptcy community, he is admitted to practice before the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois, and serves as a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, American Bar Association, Illinois State Bar Association, and Chicago Bar Association. As a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Drake University Law School, David has nearly 30 years of legal experience. A sole practitioner since 2002, he consistently looks for innovative tools and industry resources to streamline his practice operations and maximize productivity.

As a Stretto client for almost 20 years, David has utilized Best Case to ensure accurate and efficient execution of his cases, optimizing case filing templates and software automations such as auto docketing and claim tracking to facilitate case preparation. He relies on Stretto’s bankruptcy-technology innovations to save him valuable time spent providing legal services to his diverse client base. Over the years, David has leveraged Best Case’s legacy features and up-to-date forms to remain compliant with bankruptcy rules and requirements, particularly relying on OneTouch® filing, and claim tracking.


When Stretto approached David with the opportunity to transition to Best Case cloud, he eagerly accepted. As one of the first adopters to move from desktop to cloud, David offered important insight and practical feedback on the cloud’s functionality as part of the beta program designed to improve the platform before it became more widely available. Understanding cloud technology is essential to effective case management and managing practice operations from a remote location, he understood this was a critical step in the continued growth of his practice. Armed with an informative tutorial video, David used Stretto’s data-migration tool to move case and client data from Best Case desktop to Best Case cloud. He also transferred key user settings and related documents to the cloud platform.

On the cloud with remote access from anywhere with an internet connection, David leverages enhanced workflows, automatic updates, in-browser ECF Filing Tool, and an upgraded forms layout for improved case management. Along with the cloud technology, he relies on Stretto’s multifaceted team of legal and subject-matter experts to ensure he is well-positioned to serve his clients in Illinois.
