About Me

Karen A. Connolly, J.D. obtained a bachelors degree in economics from the University of Arizona in 1988 and her juris doctorate in law in 1991. Ms Connolly’s primary areas of practice are family law and criminal defense. She has proven her exceptional trial skills by winning felony jury trials in both federal and state court.

Her acquittals have included Murder, Kidnaping, Sexual Assault and Drug cases. She recently obtained the reversal of an improper murder conviction and secured the freedom of a man wrongly convicted of murder. Through her perseverance and legal skills, Ms. Connolly saved a man’s life by convincing the District Attorney to remove him from death row. She has argued before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and before the Nevada Supreme Court where she convinced the court to reverse another murder conviction.

Additionally, Ms. Connolly has vigorously represented many, many people in family court where her proven trial skills and legal acumen place her a cut above the rest.
