Nick Wooldridge has achieved — and kept — the top spot among criminal attorneys in Nevada. In Las Vegas, where lawyers are in large quantity, Mr. Wooldridge has carved-out a niche of a boutique criminal defense firm and became recognized as one of the “Top 40 Under 40” — an acknowledgment of merit and skill given by peer-review.

While pleased with the professional recognition, citations, and accolades, Mr. Wooldridge is most satisfied with the often repeated testimonials received from satisfied clients. Drawn to the battle for justice from a young age, Mr. Wooldridge has more than a decade of legal acumen behind him, yet maintains a high desire to see justice served. A Las Vegas native, Mr. Wooldridge received his JD from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas and practiced law in New York City for a decade.

While in New York, Mr. Wooldridge partnered with Arkady Bukh in representing, among other clients, Azamat Tazhayakov, of the Boston Marathon Bombing case. Excited for the glowing opportunity to give back to his hometown, Mr. Wooldridge packed and went home.

Since then, Mr. Wooldridge has represented clients across socio-economic lines and employment status including white collar criminals, international cyber thieves and even locals who need help in dealing with overzealous law enforcement authorities. Mr. Wooldridge recently and successfully defended Floyd Mayweather, Sr., the former professional boxer and trainer. As relaxed and comfortable with a potential client at a coffee shop, as he is in the penthouse suites of corporate America in New York City, Mr. Wooldridge is a dynamo in the fast-paced world of law.

Mr. Wooldridge has sustained his legal competency while combining it with the experience of a barrister decades his senior. Mr. Wooldridge has seen life's troubles and trials up close and works to make sure each client is handled as a person and not a number.
