Nancy Price


Criminal Defense - "It's all I do."

Many "criminal defense" attorneys also engage in the practice of other areas of law.  I do not.  I am a criminal defense attorney and only a criminal defense attorney.

If you need a personal injury lawyer, I'm not for you.

If you need a divorce lawyer, I'm not for you.

If you need a contract lawyer, I'm not for you.

Ms. Price has been given Martindale-Hubble's BV® Distinguished™ lawyer rating.   The BV rating "is an excellent rating" and "a widely respected mark of achievement."  For over 140 years, Martindale-Hubbell has been known as the premier authoritative resource for information on the worldwide legal profession.  This "BV Excellent" rating is based on anonymous peer reviews, meaning, local attorneys have given Ms. Price this rating, without thought of benefit to them (because their names have not been made known to Ms. Price).  Ms. Price is one of only a small handfull of local criminal defense attorneys to receive this unique peer-review BV® Distinguished rating.

Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings fall into two categories - legal ability and general ethical standards.
