About me

A skilled professional with 46 years of experience, and the respect of his peers and clients, Roger Nuttall is a seasoned criminal defense and personal injury attorney serving clients in Fresno and throughout the Central Valley.

Roger, a native of Fresno, is one of only three attorneys in the Central Valley to be recognized as a fellow with the American Board of Criminal Lawyers, the highest accolade in the practice of criminal law. Becoming a fellow is incredibly difficult: Lawyers have to be nominated by a fellow and had to have tried at least 50 major felony cases to a verdict, winning at least 35 of them. Of the 35 successful cases, at least five of them must be capital or life prison sentence cases. After a background check, the nominees face a vote by the membership. (Source: Fresno Bee)

Roger is also honored to be ranked AV Preeminent, the highest ranking available from the Martindale-Hubble Peer Review Ratings, which measures a lawyer’s ethics and legal ability based on an assessment by his or her peers.

  • David Leroy Rowell

    I first met Roger Nuttall in 1991, when he was introduced to me as one of the finest criminal defense lawyers in Fresno County; my respect and admiration for his skill and his commitment to his clients has only increased since then. If I ever needed a criminal defense attorney, Roger would be my first call.
