Mackenzie Warren Receives
“Ones to Watch” Recognition from Best Lawyers in America

McDonald Carano proudly announces that Mackenzie Warren, attorney and Vice President of the firm’s Government Affairs & Advocacy Group, received the highly regarded “Ones to Watch” recognition in Government Relations for the Las Vegas metropolitan region in the 2022 edition of Best Lawyers in America.  The award recognizes “extraordinary lawyers who have been in private practice for less than 10 years for outstanding professional excellence.” Mackenzie also received this recognition in 2021, which was the inaugural year for this new award from Best Lawyers. “Ones to Watch” recognition is based entirely on peer review and only one lawyer receives the “Ones to Watch” award for achieving the highest peer review ratings in a specific area of law and geographic region.

Combining her background as an investigative journalist with her passion for local and state government, Mackenzie focuses on developing practical legislative and administrative strategies while helping clients navigate Nevada’s political landscape. She began her career as a two-time Emmy-nominated television news anchor and reporter for the NBC affiliate in Las Vegas and Reno. Mackenzie’s legal career began in litigation before evolving into her current government affairs practice. She has litigated before the Nevada Supreme Court, the United States District Court for the District of Nevada and the Eighth Judicial District Court, Clark County, Nevada – Civil and Family Division. Mackenzie also dedicates a portion of her practice to pro bono legal services.
