Mr. Nelson obtained both his Bachelor's Degree and his Juris Doctorate Degree from the University of Southern California and has been practicing in immigration law since 1990. A member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the Los Angeles County Bar Association, and the American Bar Association, Mr. Nelson is admitted to practice before all courts in the State of California, the United States District Courts for the Northern, Central, and Eastern Districts of California, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the United States Supreme Court.

He represented thousands of Filipino war veterans and fought for fair immigration laws and practices on their behalf before the federal courts. In 1996, he also argued the cause of immigrants before the United States Supreme Court in Washington D.C., acting as co-counsel in the landmark Supreme Court case INS vs. Yang.
