We were very at ease upon meeting our attorneys and felt very confident that we chose the right attorney. They kept us up to date and handled our case expediently. We would recommend them without hesitation.

read moreFirst off, you should never need a lawyer. I recently needed one and my experience with Nick and his crew was absolutely amazing. It is very hard to find a lawyer to even talk to and feel comfortable with. this place made me feel comfortable and were very straight up with me. Helped me ease my mind when I thought things were crazy. They all have gone above and beyond comforting me and keeping me in "the know" with everything and it means a lot, even when I was hounding them. I have never been in the spot that I found myself in and hopefully never again but I am thankful to have found someone who took the time to listen and fought very very very hard on my behalf. My situation was very scary for me.... but I will not lie. Nick did everything in his reach, power, and will to help me. Thank you all again. Especially Nick and Adam. You guys are very good people and I am very happy to have met you. Thanks again.

By the way. It was scary in the court room. But also, very......... fun? (that's not a good word to describe it), neat to see Nick in action.

Thank you all again from the bottom of my heart. Every person there are good people. I can not describe how I feel. Just..... THANK YOU!

read moreI would like to take the time to say how grateful I am for LV Criminal Defense to have represented me in court, you are a team of incredibly professional criminal lawyers with very kind hearts who care about clients and their future. I appreciate everything you have done to work things out with my financial situations, for the good guidance you've given me, for making my family feel protected and see the light at the end of the tunnel. Mr. Wooldridge is AMAZING! I have had the satisfaction of meeting him. He is very natural and pleasant. He is honest about what he believes he can achieve. In his words, he will not ask a question that he does not already understand the answer to. In a word, Mr. Wooldridge is AMAZING!! I would suggest him to anyone in need of an attorney. Finally, I would like to add, he is very fair with pricing and achieves wonders. We had a very intimidating international cybercrime case that promised to unsettle us for decades. However, with these folks we got that down to a misdemanor and almost no prison time!!! My son has another opportunity in his future, and we owe all this to Nick. Thank you, guys!

read moreGreat staff, they were knowledgeable and attentive to my issues. I called on a Saturday and they immediately started working on my case. They responded quickly to any question I had. I felt they really cared and were passionate about my case. Attorney Wooldridge was top notch, professional, and he was able to get the result I needed. Worth every penny. I wouldn't trust my case to any other firm.

read moreNicholas Wooldridge and his whole team were very attentive to my family. I never had any problems with getting in touch with them when I needed to no matter the time of day. There was always an open line of comunication between us. Wooldridge law office had a sympathetic caring approach to our case, and the outcome couldn't have been more perfect. I would highly recommend the use of this law office, and if I ever am in the need for this type of defense again I would not go anywhere else.

read moreI have never had to face in my life the circumstances with the law that I have had to in the last year and a half, I was incarcerated and my wife through many long hours of researching through the internet, spoke to several other attorneys and was unable to find one that could speak to her in a way that she felt comfortable, informed, or that they appeared to be committed to being involved. After speaking with several attorney, Nicholas was the only one that took the time to listen and explain in a caring fashion, what we would be facing to resolve the situation that we were in. He did not sugar coat nor did he make any false promises. The only thing that remained was his commitment to my case. The energy that he and his staff exhibited was absolutely amazing. If you are in trouble and you need a lawyer, a friend, and someone that is committed to resolve your situation he is definitely the man for the job. Words can not describe what he and Adam have done for us to get our lives back. Gentlemen thank you and God Bless.

read moreIn May, 2017, my son got himself into serious trouble and was facing prison time for his actions. Desperate and scared, I contacted several attorneys who all were not very optimistic of my son getting out of serving prison time for his stupid actions. My boy had never gotten into trouble before and now because of one terrible stupid mistake, he was facing losing years of his life. I reached out to my friend who referred me to Nick Wooldridge for help. Nick was honest with his opinion and told me that although the situation was not good, he believed he could help my son. Throughout the whole process, Adam was attentive and quick to reply with my updates requests. Nick made my son feel hopeful and when it was all over, he truly was a miracle worker. I am and always will be grateful for the caring and hard work that Nick put into my son's case. I'm utterly amazed by the results as my son is now in boot camp followed by probation and will not be going to prison. A second chance for a good boy who made a very bad decision. Thank you Nick and Adam forever for giving my son that second chance at a good life.

Instead, your best defense is having an experienced and qualified Las Vegas criminal defense attorney like Nick Wooldridge at your side every step of the way.
About Us
read moreWhen you have a criminal record, your life is affected in profound ways. When employers or landlords conduct a background check and a criminal record shows up, you could find yourself deprived of opportunities to work or rent a home in the place where you would prefer. The good news is, there are circumstances when you can get your record sealed so the information about your past involvement with the criminal justice system will no longer be freely available to anyone who wants it. While record sealing used to be a very arduous process, the rules have now changed in Nevada to make it easier for you to seal your record under appropriate circumstances.
DUI Lawyer Las Vegas
read moreYou may have seen billboards which state, "Buzzed driving is drunk driving." This statement is actually true: a charge for driving under the influence does not require a person to act like they are drunk, such as slurring or being unable to walk correctly. Instead, the law considers the blood alcohol concentration of the driver to determine whether they are driving under the influence. If your blood alcohol concentration is.08 percent or above, DUI charges can be brought against you. Your BAC creates the presumption you are too impaired to drive, even if you actually aren't.
