About me

Nick Wooldridge became an attorney in the State of Nevada in 2004.  Consequently, he has more than 10 years’ experience in representing clients in both New York and Nevada in every aspect of criminal law. Nick’s exceptional touch is due to his hard work and meticulous case preparation. He is one of the few criminal lawyers who fully understand the essence of winning the case on preparation.

Nick leaves no page unturned in building his clients’ defense and he applies every available resource to unravelling even the most complex criminal cases. His reputation as a formidable criminal defense attorney in Las Vegas, who gets the job done precedes him.


Nicholas Wooldridge is also a New York litigation attorney with over a decade of experience working in the New York City Metropolitan area. Raised in the southwestern portion of the United States, Nicholas found his way to New York City where he received a position at a high profile criminal defense firm, the Bukh Law Firm.   There he gained valuable experience while being given the responsibility over cases of involving litigation and criminal defense. He feels that this headfirst dive into the world of courtrooms and trials was the best thing that could have happened to him. His motto is the best way to learn is to do.
