My Varied Legal Experience Can Be Your Advantage

I began my legal career as a research and writing specialist and later as an assistant federal public defender in the Southern District of Texas. In those roles, I conceived of and developed then-novel arguments relating to a complex area of federal sentencing known as the Categorical Approach. As a result of this work, many clients were able to successfully challenge the then-erroneous 5th Circuit precedent and receive lower sentences than they otherwise would have received.

After working as a public defender, I returned to Utah to clerk for a United States District Court judge. As a clerk, I drafted orders resolving many complex areas of civil and criminal law. I subsequently worked for an Am Law 200 law firm in Salt Lake City. There, I regularly drafted and argued both dispositive motions and nondispositive discovery motions in state and federal courts in Utah, consistently achieving favorable results for clients. I then worked for a well-respected boutique litigation and employment firm in Utah.

Today, I am proud to have my own law firm, the Law Office of Nicolas C. Wilde LLC, and the opportunity to pursue the cases I am most passionate about. In addition to my criminal law practice, I take select civil litigation cases.
