"I write to offer my enthusiastic endorsement of Nathan Wente as a remarkable criminal defense attorney. I do not know Nathan personally, but I have had the pleasure of spending the last couple of days watching Nathan present a thorough, concise and, most importantly, effective defense. I am most impressed with Nathan's ability to adapt to the strategies of the prosecution, to keep the jury engaged, and to refocus the trial when necessary. I would recommend the services of Nathan Wente without reservation as he is clearly a dedicated advocate who can keep the jury's attention as he cuts through the irrelevant and delivers a compelling defense."

David Linthorst, Car accident Attorney on Sep 3, 2013

"I had the privilege of meeting Nathan after we had seen each other in court a few times. He is not afraid to stand strong for each one of his clients in court and spends his time making sure every detail of his cases is combed through and explored. Nathan has trial experience from his time in the prosecutor's office in California. Do not fret, though, that experience does not make him unlikely to take your defense seriously or dedicated to the other side. Quite the opposite, it has given him a passion and a drive to really explore all of the possibilities in making sure your case does not go unchallenged. He is an engaging and caring friend, a dedicated advocate and a bold, unwavering voice. His penchant for finding the government in funny situations is a talent - I recommend Nathan for anyone in the Yreka or Medford areas."

Justin Rosas, Criminal defense Attorney on Aug 1, 2013

"I endorse this lawyer. You will not find a lawyer with more heart, energy, and commitment to justice than Nate. Nate will fight to protect your rights. Nate has experience trying a variety of criminal cases. To Nate, being a lawyer is not a vocation, or a way to make money....it is a calling to protect our sacred rights as individuals."

"I have known Nathan Wente for several years. He has always exhibited the highest level of competance and ethics. If you are looking for a lawyer who will fight for you and always do the right thing, Nathan Wente is right for you."

"Nate was a former deputy district attorney but he has found his true love in criminal defense. He is very aggressive and fights for his clients. He will, and does, go the extra mile for his clients and I highly recommend him."

William Duncan, Criminal defense Attorney on Apr 29, 2012

"Nathan is an exceptional lawyer. He is well versed in criminal prosecution and defense. I recommend him to anyone without hesitation."

Shamoon Budhwani, DUI and DWI Attorney on Dec 21, 2011
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community

"Nathan Wente is a driven and passionate attorney. Nathan believes in the U.S. Constitution and its protections for citizens of our country. I fully endorse Nathan as an attorney, as a person of integrity, and as a friend. I have known Nathan since he was 12 years old, and I can confidently say that he is the most passionate and argumentative person I know. Nathan is not a cookie cutter attorney looking to make a buck. He fiercely advocates for his clients, and uses the whole breadth of law as a shield and a sword. I am a fellow attorney, and I would not want to sit in the prosecutor's chair when Nathan is representing the defendant."
