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

Nevada’s “Top Rank Attorneys” 2023

McDonald Carano proudly announces that 17 of our attorneys are recognized as “Top Rank Attorneys” in Nevada Business Magazine’s 2023 list of the State’s top attorneys as voted by their peers. Demonstrating the depth and breadth of our legal expertise and professional leadership, the 17 McDonald Carano attorneys are from both our Reno and Las Vegas offices and represent all of our statewide practice groups. These distinguished attorneys are among the top vote-getters from several thousand nominations.

Nevada Business Magazine describes the list as “representing the best of the best in the legal industry. The lawyers who make it on the list are at the top of their fields.” We also congratulate John Fortin, Kiley Harrison, Chelsea Latino, Phil Mannelly, and Jane Susskind on receiving additional recognition as “Best Up & Coming Attorneys” in the “Top Rank Attorneys” 2023 list. Best Up & Coming Attorneys are under 40 years of age and licensed to practice in Nevada for 10 years or less.

The list is created from a peer review survey of attorneys admitted to practice in Nevada. Nominees are scored on the number and type of votes received. Votes from within an attorney’s own firm receive a score of one and votes from another firm receive a weighted score of three. Each attorney on the list had to receive enough votes to qualify and had to pass verification and standing review with the State Bar of Nevada. 

McDonald Carano congratulates the following attorneys for receiving this prestigious peer recognition.

  • Matt Addison, Partner, Reno Office Managing Partner – Construction Law & Litigation, Commercial & Complex Litigation
  • Karyna Armstrong, Associate, Las Vegas Office – Commercial & Complex Litigation
  • A.G. Burnett, Partner, Reno Office – Gaming & Administrative Law
