I am very grateful for the many opportunities I have had in my life. I have been an owner and senior partner in a successful law firm for over 35 years. That success hasn’t come easily but it has been a highly rewarding experience. It has been my privilege to represent many Nevadans from diverse backgrounds who have suffered harm caused by another’s wrongdoing. I have found it gratifying helping people get their lives back together and that has inspired me to take this next step.
I am at the point in my life where I want to do something more for my community. I would very much like the opportunity to serve you as a Judge on the Clark County District Court in Department 24. I am prepared to work extremely hard to earn your vote and your respect. I look forward to meeting with many of you in the months ahead.
My legal experience is extensive and broad-based. I have been a Board Certified Civil Trial Advocate for over 30 years and served on the Board of Governors of the National Board of Trial Advocacy for over ten years. I have spent much of my career in the courtroom, trying civil cases. For my efforts, I am listed in Martindale-Hubbell’s Guide to Preeminent Attorneys in the United States, receiving the highest rating (AV) that can be awarded to an attorney. I have been acknowledged as a Mountain States Super Lawyer since 2007. I received the Trial Lawyer of the Year award from the Nevada Trial Lawyers Association and also the Ray Badger Award for Distinguished Service to the Nevada Justice Association, an organization dedicated to working for consumers to improve the civil justice system.
During my career, I have been involved in my community and active in various legal groups and organizations. I have handled pro bono cases and have been honored by the Rape Crisis Center for my assistance to victims of sexual assault. I have been a member of the Board of Governors of the Nevada State Bar and the Nevada Trial Lawyers Association, the Clark County Bar Association, the Nevada Supreme Court Committee on Lawyer Advertising and a Master Trial Lawyer for the American Inns of Court.
My goal is to be an outstanding member of the judiciary. I will be a Judge with the proper temperament, objectivity and fairness to render decisions based on merit and justice. I ask for your support in the upcoming elections. I can assure you I will respect and continue to earn the trust you place in me.
