Turned a nightmare into a blessing
After a long drive from CA and longer day at work. I had dinner with clients and drove to my hotel. I was so tired, I fell asleep at the wheel on the busiest street in Las Vegas. I was taken in by LVPD. Booked on a DUI. I hired Nick and Adam ASAP. They won my case with me not stepping into court and just keeping my informed in what I needed to do. I am grateful for him and his team

Would give them 10 stars if we could.
Nicholas and Adam, paralegal, are rockstars in their profession. ;) They are friendly, communicative and knowledgeable. Throughout the entire process, they communicated and never left us in the dark. We're not legal experts so it was very important they were patient with our questions. We would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Highly Recommended
I have never been in trouble in my life, and ended up needing a lawyer. I did a little research and found Wooldridge Law Firm ranked very high in Las Vegas. So I called for a consultation and meet up with Matt. I explained everything to him and made me fell a lot better. I was worried about losing my job for something so stupid and really didn't make any sense to me. The office handled all the interactions with my Bail Bonds, and went to court for me and I didn't have to show up to court until my final court appearance. After all was said and done, my case was "DISMISSED". So thankful for Matt, Nick, Ed, and Melody. Would HIGHLY Recommend Wooldridge Law Firm.

Couldn't have picked a better lawyer
Nicholas and his team helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life. Since the very beginning, his effectiveness was on clear display, winning many battles to make my situation better than it would have otherwise been. Nicholas was always willing to write letters to employers and handle other last-minute issues. Without his help, I'm not sure I would be in such a favorable position considering the serious allegations made.
