About Me

Regina was born and raised in Muncie, IN.  The first of her family to graduate college, she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Indiana University, and her Juris Doctorate from the Indiana University School of Law in Indianapolis, IN.   


 

 





During Law School, she was a published member of the Indiana & International Comparative Law Review.  She also interned for the Indiana Department of Administration, Indiana Public Access Counselor (the Freedom of Information office of the Indiana State Government), and for CMG Worldwide, an intellectual property marketing firm representing celebrity individuals.  

 

She became a lawyer to help protect people (especially children), and has spent countless hours volunteering to make a difference in the lives of kids.  Her efforts include:

 

Reach For Youth(Teen Court Pre-Trial Diversion Program)


This program is designed to reduce recidivism in first-time juvenile offenders by giving them a second chance to repair the harm they caused while avoiding criminal court prosecution.  Regina helped teenagers prepare their case for "trial" in front of this alternative court.

 

Protective Order Pro-Bono Project


This project provides free legal assistance to victims of domestic violence to help them navigate the civil court system, obtain protective orders from their abusers, and educate them on various ways to stay safe. 

Nevada CAP (Children's Attorney Project)


This program provides counsel, advice, and representation to abused and neglected children who are in foster care placement, institutions, or are wards of the state so that they will have a voice in the court process and play an active role in their own future.

 

FUSE Leader


Regina serves as a mentor and leader to her team of Junior High students in the youth program of Central Christian Church.  The program helps kids build character, become responsible members of their community, bond socially with other like-minded kids, and obtain spiritual growth.

 

STRIVE(Students Turning Responsibility Into Valuable Experience)


STRIVE is a program in which Junior and Senior High School students of Central Christian Church volunteer over 3,200 hours of community service in a single day.  This year, Regina led a team of students at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission where they organized donated food, cleaned the facility, and sorted money donated from fountains around the Las Vegas Valley.

 

On the professional side, Regina is admitted to practice law in the States of Nevada and Indiana as well as the United States District Court.  Her professional activities include membership in Phi Delta Phi, the American Bar Association, the Defense Research Institute, the Clark County Bar Association, the Nevada American Inn of Court, and the Southern Nevada Association of Women Attorneys.


 






Regina also spends time educating other Attorneys.  She has been a co-author and speaker at several legal seminars including:

     - Skip Tracing in Nevada (2005)

     - Insurance Coverage Trends (2006)

     - Collection Law from Start to Finish (2007)

     - Handling the Auto Injury Claim (2008)






 






Regina has won many awards and recognitions for her commitment to excellence and ethics.  Her most prestigious award, however, was being named an AV Preeminent Rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell.  This distinction is only obtained by ~5% of attorneys nationwide.  The only way to receive an AV Rating is for other attorneys and Judges to submit a review of their experiences with you.  The AV Preeminant Rating signifies that she adheres to the "Highest Ethical Standards" and legal abilities in 5 areas:

     - Legal Knowledge

     - Analytical Capabilities

     - Judgment

     - Communication Ability

     - Legal Experience






 





In addition to her professional and volunteer commitments, Regina is a mother to three young children.
