Welcome To Wente Law

Your Local Defense Attorney in Medford, Oregon & Yreka, California

Why Nathan D. Wente?

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 restraining orders, criminal defense, traffic ticket, DUI, and landlord/tenant in Oregon & California. 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.

I have worked on both sides of the system in California and have extensive experience handling criminal defense, DUI, and traffic violations in Oregon & California. Along with handling landlord-tenant disputes in Oregon. You can trust me to provide sound legal counsel every step of the way and to guide you through the court process with ease.

    I got a ticket in So Oregon on my way to Cali and after searching for an attorney I hired Nathan. Right from the get go he was all over this ticket. He was honest and very detailed with the way he was going to handle this case, he kept me up to date on everything that was going on. He is not a push over & loves a challenge. He got my ticket dismissed. I would hire & recommend Nathan to anybody. Thx Nathan for keeping my driving record clean.

  • Wente saves the day!

    Randy - 5.0 Stars

    Wente stopped me from taking a bad deal and may have saved me time in jail. I wanted to take a deal and was upset that he didn't want me to. We ended up going to a hearing and after the hearing I got a better deal. He helped get very serious charges dismissed. Thanks Wente!
  • Falsely arrested and charged with multiple crimes

    Jason - 5.0 Stars

    So I'm back again with more false charges. I used Nate in the past and at that time knew that I would never use another attorney again. Just like all my other false charges in the past Nate got these dismissed as well. I truly believe that if I had another attorney represent me I would have been urged to take a plea or it would of went to trial and I'd lose. If your reading this review to find a attorney, do yourself a favor and stop looking, cause you just found the best with Nate Wente. Nate the great is your best option. Take it from a guy that knows. I've used him four times and win every time.
