Nicholas Wooldridge, Esq
LV Criminal Defense
Nicholas Wooldridge received his law degree from University of Nevada Las Vegas Law School and has been licensed since 2004. While studying, Mr. Wooldridge targeted Criminal Law and participated in mock trials under the mentorship of prosecutors in front of judges. Upon graduation, Mr. Wooldridge accepted an offer to work with Arkady Bukh, a noted New York City Criminal Defense Lawyer. Under Mr. Bukh’s tutelage, Mr. Wooldridge honed his skills in the fast-paced legal environment that is New York City. He also honed his compassion and sense of fairness. Mr. Wooldridge takes the time to listen to his clients. He doesn’t stop at hearing them, he listens. His empathy level is one that is seldom reached by anyone, let alone case-hardened defense attorneys. Mr. Wooldridge knows that sometimes good people make bad choices. He doesn’t believe that a moment of indiscretion should ruin a lifetime of model citizenry. He also knows that often people are the victims of over-zealous law enforcement. Persons are entrapped or at the wrong place at the wrong time. Things happen. Mr. Wooldridge has built his reputation on getting lives back on track when things happen. Now, back home in Las Vegas, Mr. Wooldridge continues to represent individuals accused of everything from local, ‘petty’ crimes to international, white-collar criminals. Mr. Wooldridge has defended thousands of cases and is recognized as the attorney-of-choice for many who have been the victim of overeager police. For those who were truly guilty, Mr. Wooldridge has repeatedly demonstrated his superior knowledge of the law and courtroom procedures as he has repeatedly gone to bat for those without hope and returned hope and freedom. Mr. Wooldridge provides each prospective client a free initial consultation with no obligation.
