About Me

I am Las Vegas criminal defense attorney Gabriel L. Grasso and I have had an impressive legal career beginning with a short stint in corporate defense and culminating in over 25 years of practicing criminal defense law. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Miami School of Law with a Juris Doctor degree, I pursued a civil litigation career with a nationally recognized New York based firm. During this time, I defended major corporations such as Union Carbide and Alcoa Aluminum.


After only eight short months in the civil litigation world, I realized that criminal trial work was where he wanted to spend his career and accepted a position as the Assistant Public Defender for Broward County, Florida. This opportunity allowed Mr. Grasso to practice in all areas of criminal defense from simple drug possession cases to capital homicide cases.

This extensive criminal trial work allowed me to start his solo practice in 1995 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. I have represented both private and court-appointed defendants in all criminal matters, with an emphasis on major felonies in the areas of drug trafficking, life felonies and firearms offenses.

In 2000, I became licensed to practice in Nevada and moved to Las Vegas to continue his criminal defense practice. Since that time, I have defended many high-profile criminal cases in both state and federal court. Past Nevada cases include successful representation of defendants in the “Rolling 60′s Crips” and “Hells Angels” federal prosecutions, as well as the “311 boys” in state court. In 2007, I became Las Vegas counsel for O.J. Simpson and was part of the defense team, which represented Mr. Simpson in the infamous Palace Station Casino memorabilia case.

I have an impressive win-loss record for criminal trials is a result of over 25 years of defense practice. I have successfully defended cases involving DNA analysis, scientific eyewitness identification issues, entrapment claims in large drug trafficking prosecutions and psychiatric testimony in sexual battery prosecutions.

Today, Gabriel L. Grasso is considered one of Nevada’s finest trial lawyers. I am dedicated to representing clients who have been accused or charged with federal or state criminal matters. I am licensed to practice in Nevada and Florida, and has appeared in various other states before multiple federal and state courts. I have gained a national reputation as a talented, no nonsense trial lawyer. When it comes to your defense, experience and personal attention matters. Turn to one of the most experienced and respected criminal defense lawyers in Las Vegas to provide you with exceptional legal representation as you face criminal charges.

I understand that I am not only fighting for your rights, but also for the future of your family, job, and reputation. As your attorney I will do everything possible to ensure that your rights are protected, your interests are safeguarded, and your entitlement to a fair legal proceeding is maintained. Most importantly, when it comes to the final result, I fully intend to be standing with you on the winning side.
