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

Dan Aquino Receives “Ones to Watch” and “Rising Stars” Recognition

McDonald Carano congratulates Dan Aquino, Co-Chair of the Employment & Labor Law Practice, on receiving “Ones to Watch” recognition in the 2024 and 2023 editions of The Best Lawyers in America® in Appellate Practice, Employment & Labor Litigation, and Commercial Litigation. The award recognizes “extraordinary lawyers who have been in private practice for less than 10 years for outstanding professional excellence.” Ones to Watch recognition is based on peer review and only one lawyer receives the recognition for achieving the highest peer review ratings in one or more specific areas of practice and in one geographic region. Dan received recognition in these three areas of law for the Las Vegas metropolitan region. 

Dan also received “Rising Stars” recognition in Employment Litigation Defense in Mountain States Super Lawyers® Magazine in 2023 and 2022. Dan is one of only six Rising Star attorneys recognized in Employment Litigation Defense in the entire five-state Mountain States region and he is one of only three Rising Star attorneys recognized in Employment Litigation Defense in the state of Nevada. Dan is also listed in Vegas Inc’s “Top Lawyers” in Employment and Labor Law in 2023.
