Celebrating 75 Years of Serving Nevada’s Legal, Business, Government, and Civic Communities

10 Las Vegas Office Attorneys Selected as “Top Lawyers” 2022

McDonald Carano congratulates 10 attorneys in our Las Vegas office who are recognized as “Top Lawyers” in the Vegas Inc./Las Vegas Weekly 2022 list of the “best in our community as recommended by peers, clients, and colleagues.” The 10 selected attorneys are recognized in 9 areas of legal expertise, which places McDonald Carano in the proud position of having “Top Lawyers” in the most areas of law on the list. With a total of 10 attorneys, McDonald Carano is also one of only two firms with 10 attorneys on the “Top Lawyers” list. 

We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate our Managing Partner, George Ogilvie, who is the only attorney recognized as a “Top Lawyer” in Construction Law. Our 10 “Top Lawyers” are listed below. 

The “Top Lawyers” list is the result of a peer-nominated survey sent to practicing attorneys in Southern Nevada inviting them to recommend Top Lawyers in a variety of areas of law. As the publication explains, “the peer-nominated list is an opportunity to recognize some of the most well-regarded legal professionals in the Valley, and it’s a resource for the public—these are the lawyers that lawyers hire. It is an honor to recognize the powerhouse lawyers who work tirelessly for their clients and the community.” The complete Top Lawyers list is available here in the June 30-July 6 issue of Las Vegas Weekly.
