Government & Municipality Defense
Some of our most important cases have involved representing government entities or public officials in the State of Nevada. We bring experience and proficient legal acumen to these matters, which often trigger multiple areas of law. We have obtained winning verdicts and judgments that often involve state and federal constitutional issues, and have successfully maintained those verdicts and judgments on appeal. The matters we litigate on behalf of these clients, both at the trial and appellate level, include employment claims and civil rights claims arising under 42 USC § 1983 (First Amendment, Eighth Amendment), excessive force, and police liability. Our clients have included the State of Nevada, as well as counties, cities and constitutional officers within the state.
