LV Criminal Defense


Nicholas Wooldridge is Las Vegas’ premier criminal defense attorney and has etched a niche for himself among the pantheon of defense lawyers. Mr. Wooldridge has repeatedly showed ability in cases from small cases to large ones.  Along the way he was an integral part in developing the defense for an associate of the Boston Marathon Bomber.

When it comes to clients, Mr. Wooldridge’s default mode is acceptance. He doesn’t judge a client based on what they supposedly did. Mr. Wooldridge grasps that sometimes good people make mistakes and often innocent persons get caught in the net cast by overzealous law enforcement personnel. Few lawyers are recognized for their skill in local, state, national and international legal arenas – simutaneously. Mr. Wooldridge accomplished that feat. Whether representing international criminals or petty crooks, Mr. Wooldridge has sustained his legal competency and combined it with the experience of a barrister decades his senior. Mixed in is the healthy dose of compassion of a person who has seen life’s troubles and trials.

A dynamo in the high-stakes legal world of New York City before returning home to Las Vegas, Mr. Wooldridge was recognized as one of the “Top 40 Under 40” — not an easy feat as membership requires the affirmation of one’s peers. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Mr. Wooldridge earned his J.D. from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas Law School before practicing in New York City for a decade. While there he worked with Arkady Bukh, the noted criminal defense attorney, in representing Azamat Tazhayakov, one of the co-conspirators in the Boston Marathon Bombing.

Since returning to Las Vegas Mr. Wooldridge has continued his fight for justice for all layers of social-strata his client roster includes white collar criminals, international cyber thieves and locals who need help in dealing with a swatch of legal issues.

In 2015, I had the privilege of hiring Mr. Wooldridge for a situation more difficult than most. My situation involved the federal government, which is never fun. Mr. Wooldridge took his time to really understand my circumstances, as my legal situation was quite unusual. I was always kept apprised of my case status, as well as my options throughout the process. As far as I'm concerned, I was given a second chance, and Mr. Wooldridge is to thank. Mr. Wooldridge is by far the best criminal defense attorney I've ever met, and he is an attorney who truly cares about his clients and getting them the best possible outcomes.
