Roger Nuttall

Experience. Skill. Expertise.

A skilled professional with 46 years of experience, more than 250 trials, and the respect of his peers and clients, Roger Nuttall is a seasoned Fresno criminal defense lawyer and personal injury attorney serving clients in Fresno County and throughout the Central Valley.

Roger, a native of Fresno, is one of only three criminal defense lawyers in the Central Valley to be recognized as a fellow with the American Board of Criminal Lawyers, the highest accolade in the practice of criminal law. Becoming a fellow is incredibly difficult: Lawyers have to be nominated by a fellow and had to have tried at least 50 major felony cases to a verdict, winning at least 35 of them. Of the 35 successful cases, at least five of them must be capital or life prison sentence cases. After a background check, the nominees face a vote by the membership.

Roger is honored to be ranked AV Preeminent, the highest ranking available from the Martindale-Hubble Peer Review Ratings, which measures a lawyer’s ethics and legal ability based on an assessment by his or her peers. He is also a Super Lawyer.

Education

Attended Fresno schools and graduated from Fresno High School in 1957.
B.A. Degree (English) in 1962 from San Francisco State College.
Juris Doctor Degree from Hastings College of Law, University of California, in 1968.
