 About Us

 At Wolfe Law, Attorney Paul R. Wolfe offers a special advantage that other criminal defense attorneys simply do not have: a combination of experience as a former veteran police officer with the knowledge of a skilled criminal defense attorney.  He has more than fifteen years experience in the criminal justice system.  As a result, he is intimately knowledgeable about the process of investigating crimes and how the police respond, think, and ultimately build their cases.


 Attorney Wolfe has worked as a patrol officer, police training officer, S.W.A.T. member, instructor, drug recognition expert, DUI enforcement, crime scene investigator, sergeant, and patrol supervisor in Nevada.  He spent more than a decade protecting and serving the community and now he uses that unique experience to protect and serve the constitutional rights of his clients.


 Furthermore, he has worked for The Law Office of David R. Houston, one of the premiere criminal defense attorneys in the Reno area. From all of this he gained valuable experience in the area of criminal law and a unique insight into the criminal justice system.  He also understands, on a professional as well as a personal level, the importance of a competent and aggressive defender of your rights.


 This type of experience makes Attorney Wolfe unique and very valuable to clients looking for fierce criminal defense. Because of this experience, he is able to devise the most appropriate plan of action for your defense, whether it be taking the case all the way to trial or negotiating an acceptable deal with the prosecution.
