About Nadine

Learn Nadine’s areas of practice.

“NADINE IS A POWERFUL DEFENDER WHO WILL BRING YOU HOPE.”

I am the managing attorney for Beckwith Law - a firm entirely devoted to criminal defense. We handle all types of cases ranging from complex felonies to simple misdemeanors.

We specialize in defending Domestic Violence, DUI, Assault, and Juvenile offenses. Criminal defense is my passion and I approach each case differently, as no two cases are the same.

By avoiding a cookie cutter approach, you get a customized defense that is going to be the most effective for your specific situation. I do an independent investigation on every case to uncover evidence that is favorable to your defense.

I pride myself on being a powerful negotiator and influential attorney in the courtroom. With clients, I am a compassionate and accessible advocate, ready to hear your side of the story.
