Paul R. Wolfe, Esq
When we contacted several lawyers in Carson City; to no avail, we left a message on Lawyers.com and Paul Wolfe called us back within a ½ hour. He was very professional and helped us to understand the circumstances we were facing. His fee was half of what the Carson City Lawyers were charging. The charges were a misdemeanor, but the DA’s office was prosecuting it under a felony. His confident yet comfortable, at ease demeanor alleviated our anxiety over the change of charges. Five + months later we were charged with the original misdemeanor. We will recommend Paul Wolfe, Esq. to anyone who needs an excellent first-rate criminal lawyer.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!
Attorney Paul Wolfe handled my problem and was very informative. Mind you this is my first time ever getting in trouble and I was pretty clueless. Paul always answered all my questions and explained things in a way I could actually understand. Even for the smallest things that you get in trouble for I recommend these office. Paul seems to care for the people he represents.

Call Paul first!
Before I hired Mr. Wolfe I was told by other attorneys that I would have to serve a mandatory 30 days in jail or 60 days of house arrest and that nothing could be done about it because it was mandated by law. I was not satisfied with their answers and continued to contact various attorneys. Ultimately, I spoke with Mr. Wolfe and after only 10 minutes he informed me of the police officer’s mistake and told me it was a bad arrest. He knew this based on his former experience as a police officer. I immediately hired him and he did exactly as he said he would and ultimately convinced the prosecutor to dismiss the charges against me. If not for Mr. Wolfe’s knowledge and experience I would have listened to some of the other attorneys and served 30 days in jail. Mr. Wolfe did an absolutely outstanding job and got me a result that other attorneys couldn’t. If you are looking for excellent criminal defense then don’t do what I did and waste time calling other attorneys...call Paul first.

Paul did an outstanding job representing me in my DUI case. He had the charges reduced to a Reckless Driving. I was quite satisfied with his representation and I would recommend him highly to anybody needing a criminal defense lawyer.

Amazing!
Mr. Wolfe is wonderful! I highly recommend him. I obtained him earlier this year to represent my boyfriend who was incarcerated (due to another charge). He had an active warrant which was preventing him from an early release. Paul settled it, and we got the exact outcome we were hoping for. He kept in contact with me the entire time, and any questions we had were answered the same day. His prices were very reasonable, and the lowest compared to any other attorney I spoke with. If you are looking for someone who cares about your case and getting you the outcome you are looking for, then this is your guy!

Absolutely Awesome!
I was arrested and I was facing a mandatory prison sentence if convicted. The prosecutor was playing hard ball with my case because of the politics involved with the nature of the offense. Paul defended me aggressively and did not stop until I was assured no prison time. I am truly grateful to him for keeping me out of prison. It could not have worked out any better...go with Paul and you won't be disappointed!

Great DUI attorney!
I was facing a stiff sentence for a high blood alcohol level on a dui involving an accident. Paul successfully argued for a reduced sentence at my sentencing. He was excellent in court. He was honest and fair by not charging me the high prices that other attorneys quoted me. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know.

Simply the Best
I was facing a DUI charge which was questionable and Mr. Wolfe was able to have the DUI charge dismissed and negotiated to a simple traffic violation. I was quite pleased with his hard work and attentiveness to my situation. I would highly recommend him to anybody seeking a criminal defense lawyer.

Fantastic Attorney
Attorney Paul Wolfe represented me in a child neglect issue which was absolutely not true. I was emotionally devastated and panicked. He worked hard on my case and ultimately the charge was dismissed. I could not have been more satisfied with his services. His fees are extremely reasonable.
