Nathan Wolf
I contacted Attorney Wolf with an urgent matter which I needed assistance within 48 hours. Nathan responded immediately and jumped right in to handle my needs. He was compassionate, confident and informative on the situation. As you know not all cases are a win, but in our case it was! When Nathan speaks on your behalf, he is articulate and intelligent. My family was so impressed and very happy with the resolution!! Thank you Attorney Wolf!!

In the years that I worked with Nathan, I was always treated as a person just not another case. He was very patient with all of the delays and kept me grounded, through a very difficult process.

Industrial development defense and mitigation
Nate and his network of like minded people strived for responsible development in four municipalities and the county in this case. His perseverance and organization in over 80 municipal and county meetings brought respect and raised the scrutiny by the politicians. But when the majority of the politicians side with business and not the quality of life of their residents, then the mitigation aspect of the case proceeded. Nate has shown commitment to the case that other attorneys would not have shown. I highly recommend him to keep developers and responsible growth of our community in check.
