Las Vegas Office Lawyers Ranked Among Best Lawyers in America 2023

McDonald Carano proudly announces that 15 of our Las Vegas office lawyers have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2023 edition of Best Lawyers in America and two lawyers received Ones to Watch awards. Best Lawyers in America recognizes only the top 5% of practicing lawyers and the Ones to Watch award recognizes “extraordinary lawyers who have been in private practice for less than 10 years for outstanding professional excellence.” 

Best Lawyers recognition is based on a peer review process that evaluates the professional abilities and quality of legal services provided by lawyers who are practicing in the same geographic region and area of law. The list of recognized lawyers from our Las Vegas office is provided below.
