He did a great job looked up 1377 for me and really just worked super hard me off my charges he was super nice and easy to work with really.know what he is doing !
Went to court and got one case dismissed while the penalty on my other case greatly reduced got it over with very quick
For something so substantial in my life it was a relief to have Mr.Wente. I knew he was a prior District Attorney and was intimidating in court. As a defense attorney he really was able to help me get out of a tight spot. He was very punctual and reliable and was able to work out a great deal for me with the DA that got me out of jail sooner than I expected.
Wente stopped me from taking a bad deal and may have saved me time in jail. I wanted to take a deal and was upset that he didn't want me to. We ended up going to a hearing and after the hearing I got a better deal. He helped get very serious charges dismissed. Thanks Wente!
I hired Mr. Wente after receiving a traffic ticket that would have had repercussions for my license in my home state of California. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Wente kept me well informed and more importantly, he took the time to make sure that I understood what was happening. He also possessed superior knowledge of the specific practices of certain Oregon state programs that eventually led to my dismissal, a conclusion that most thought my trial would not reach. He was not only well prepared, thorough, but personable as well. 10/10 experience.
I love this attorney. From the very beginning he was helpful, knowledgeable and very passionate about my defense. I could tell that he truly cared about my case and about holding our police and judges responsible for their actions. Not only did he successfully get my cased dismissed, but the judge was all hot and bothered about it, which was very entertaining. I would highly highly recommend Mr. Wente, he is truly the People's attorney.
As a client of Nathan Wente, I am honered to say that he is a devoted and honest lawyer who prides himself in representing his clients to the best of his abilities.
Nathan helped me with a moving violation against the city, which was clearly imposed to me unfairly. During the process of the case, he always kept me informed on the status and worked efficiently to get it resolved. He dedicated a significant amount of time to ensure that proper information was exchanged between him and I and was always available to answer any question that arose. On the day of trial he was very prepared in presenting my case. In my personal and professional opinion, he is a lawyer you will want in your corner. He works with perseverance, diligence, and superior excellence.
Mr. Wente is an extremely smart and experienced attorney (former prosecutor). He's a straight arrow and will give you no nonsense advice. You can tell he knows what he's doing just by talking to him. He is not a "lets just make a deal" attorney. Mr. Wente will follow through and see problems resolved to the end. I would recommend Mr. Wente to anyone needing legal help in criminal defense, be it felonies or misdemeanors.

I am a resident of Washington state who took a road trip with my wife on my vacation to CA. I got speeding citation on I-5 stated I drove at 90 plus with my Toyota Prius. This citation arose huge concern after my vacation and I through that should be an impossible to have this off from my driving record. However, I heard about this website and try to find a attorney to help me out. It was a nice coincidence that I retain Nathan to represent me. We engaged together through phone conference and he tried to appeal for my case after I was judged as guilty based on the certain circumstance from police report. He appealed for me with his professional vision based on my personal statement and facts. Finally, he won a dismissal of case for me and I only release my concern at the day he told me the result of this case. I appreciated his professional and save my trip to the court by person. It is a excellent experience that I retained him as my representative. Thank you so much Nathan.
