Vegas Inc presents 2021 Top Lawyers

When you need a lawyer it can be overwhelming to find the one that is right for your needs—we have thousands in the valley, after all. The 2021 Vegas Inc Top Lawyers list is a great place to start.

To ensure we found the best of the best, we went straight to the source—sending a survey directly to nearly 3,000 lawyers in Clark County to get their recommendations of lawyers in 20 areas of law most common to Southern Nevada. We also recognize that many people turn to friends, family, colleagues and neighbors when seeking legal help, so we held a Community Choice portion of the awards for public input.

Our 2021 Top Lawyers list consists of nearly 160 leading lawyers in Southern Nevada, as nominated by peers, clientele and the community—each one checked against records with the Nevada State Bar to ensure that they are in good standing. The prestigious list details a comprehensive catalog of the most prominent and impressive lawyers, organized by areas of law—a thorough resource for anyone looking for legal assistance.

The 2021 Vegas Inc Top Lawyers originally appeared in a special issue of Vegas Inc found inside of Las Vegas Weekly.  Sign up to get each of Vegas Inc’s special publications delivered to your inbox on the day of their release.
