Nathan Douglas Wente

Client reviews on AVVO are not within my control.  If a particular client indicates that a specific result was achieved in their case this should not be accepted as an indication that other clients will necessarily see the same results.
Be advised that I never promise a client a particular outcome.  Details of prior cases should not be taken as an indication that other clients will necessarily see the same results either.
I am a former prosecutor and my time spent in that position taught me many things.  Most notably I discovered that prosecutors are NOT the attorneys for “The People”; defense attorneys are.
My areas of practice include criminal defense, traffic tickets, and personal/auto injury.
I make it a priority to be reasonably available to my clients and I do my best to help them understand what is happening through every step of their case.
When I am not lawyering I enjoy spending time with my family, working on home improvement projects, gardening, and traveling.
