True Professional
I've consulted with other lawyers prior to Mr. Dudley and not one can even compare to him in not only professionalism but also knowledge-wise and time efficiency. I'm glad to know I have a lawyer that has my back every time.

Criminal defense
Our case was given to Nick mid stream. .. he picked it up and ran with it. Many obstacles were thrown at him... one of which being his hard headed client. He was able to be blunt..and honest with us and didn't try to baffle us with BS.... at the end of a very long process he was able to reach an agreement that initially wasn't looking like an option. He listened to us and made us active in the case. Highly recommend his services.

Firearm Laws
Nick was a straight shooter when consulting about firearms. He sat down with us and answered all questions. He did not for one second seem irritated or look at his watch! He was very kind and will turn back to him if we have any more concerns in the future. Thank you, Nick!

Recent car purchase
Mr Dudley is a very professional lawyer. I had a question about my recent car purchase from a car dealer and he suggested me all the right options in my favor. He also emailed me the link to the state law applicable in the particular situation. He is very knowledgeable. He is a very smooth talker and I would definitely recommend him for any legal issues.

My neighborhood Lawyer
Mr. Dudley has taken care of multiple tickets for me. He works quickly and swiftly, and kept me informed on my cases. He makes himself available and is easy to be in contact with for legal questions. I have recommended him to many of my Military friends and they have been pleased with the work he did for them. Nick Dudley is a knowledgable, friendly and frankly a badass lawyer.
