Why Choose Us

office about us

At The Law Offices of Kristina Wildeveld and Associates, we understand that most people have never have had to consult with an attorney or have never had to deal with the trauma that comes with being arrested. We understand most people have never had to get a friend or a loved one out of jail, or face a lifetime in jail themselves. We understand that most people do not know what to do in that situation. We also realize the stress and anxiety associated with that first visit to an attorney’s office. Usually a prospective client sits in a waiting room surrounded by diplomas and plaques while filling out an information form. The client then gets invited to an office with more diplomas and certificates and sits across a desk from an attorney while they discuss the case. This is all very intimidating. At our Law Offices, we do all we can to make a prospective client feel both comfortable and confident; and we do our best to alleviate any stress you may have about the uncertainty of the system. In both our Las Vegas and Los Angeles offices, we provide an atmosphere that is more of a home than an office. We allow clients to relax and we encourage them to ask questions until they are satisfied that they understand the road ahead.How can you tell if a lawyer is concerned about your case more than their bottom-line? When you sit down and talk with them about your case, always note what percentage of the conversation is about the fee you need to pay them. You also look to see what they do outside the office. Are they involved in their community? Do they donate their time and money to make their community a better place to live? Do they do things that help those less fortunate than himself? The reality is; if a lawyer does not care enough about the community they live in, they probably will take the same approach with their clients.  Our firm has a proven track record for helping the community and its members.  If you are looking for a Law Firm that will take the time and the interest in your case, call the Law Offices of Kristina Wildeveld & Associates, our attorneys are dedicated to those we serve.

Tonight, June 9, 2016 I attended Nevada Attorneys for Criminal Justice Annual Meeting, Election and Dinner honoring Kristina Wildeveld, Defender of the Year.  In my opinion, attorneys like Kristina should be honored every year.  As Dayvid Jann Figler so eloquently shared in his remarks, when Kristina is on a mission, she will not “let it go.”  She will fight until she has achieved justice for her client.   I have known Kristina for 24 years.  She has known my nieces and nephews for far longer.  In the years we have known one another there has been a mutual respect, and I will forever be grateful.  She has four incredible kids, a not bad looking husband, and they inspire her to do what she does so well:  Heal the world in her way.  Working for the Special Public Defender so many years ago, she saw young children tried as adults and sentenced to life in prison.  Young children who made a mistake who now face NOTHING.  There are law projects for innocents all over the country, but where is there a law project for these kids who made a mistake.  Kristina.

“In 2005, after a successful career as a defense attorney in the public sector, Kristina opened the doors to a different type of law practice.  She wanted to build a unique law firm that was more concerned with a client’s well being than the fee the client was generating. Well being does not always just mean getting the client a good deal. Well being means helping the client understand the process, well being means explaining all of the obstacles that the client faces, and most of all well being means assuring the client that you are doing all that you can possibly do to get the client a satisfactory outcome. Kristina has created a unique law firm that provides the client with big city experience and a small town feel.”

There were testimonials tonight from two of her clients who shared their stories.  But she did not help two people.  She has helped so many.  Both faced life in prison for infractions that occurred in their early teens and both have successfully entered the world again, thanks to Kristina.  One is married, has a son, is an elected official and thanks Kristina for giving her a chance at life.  The other is a young man who was given at the age of 14, 40 years to life.  He had no hope.  But, he had Kristina.  At the age of 32 years old, he was released from prison and has been given a second chance.  He has a job, an apartment, a car and he stays out of trouble, but he has a family and he considers Kristina and her family his as they do him.

“Moral of the story: don’t ever write anyone off! You never know who someone could turn out to be or where they could go. It’s great to see stories like this where people are able to change their lives around due to the kindness of someone else.”  Huffington Post.

Love Kristina.  Love her kids, and all of her extended family – to everyone who calls her mom.  I call her “friend.”  I am the lucky one.
