I've been interested in criminal law since working as a police dispatcher during high school. To me, criminal law has always felt the most like real law, because of the impact it has on real people. I enjoy spending my time in a courtroom, and I live to argue. I've served as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney, so I understand criminal law from both sides of the table.
I place a premium on placing my client's in the best situation to resolve their issues. I will counsel you every step of the way, and you will know you're getting the best possible resolution to your problem.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer without reservation. I've handled cases against Nick when I was a prosecutor, as fellow defense attorneys, as well as trying cases together. Nick is very intelligent and quick on his feet, both very useful skills in the court room. He is compassionate about his clients, and the numerous positive results show that. Nick is quite simply a great lawyer and an asset to the defense bar.

Nick Poehl is quite simply a fighter. When I was a prosecutor, I didn't enjoy my cases against Mr. Poehl. He constantly found holes in the police work when I mistakenly thought it was solid. He always protected his clients rights. I also had the privilege of trying several cases against Mr. Poehl and both the juries and judges love him. He is a well-respected member of the defense bar by fellow private practitioners and prosecutors alike. I wouldn't hesitate to send my friends and family to Mr. Poehl if they were to make a mistake requiring his services. I fully endorse this lawyer and am honored to be a part of the defense bar with him.
