Brian D. Nettles

About me

I started the Nettles Law Firm over a decade ago because of my sincere desire to help those injured due to someone else's negligence. Over the years, I have seen tragedy strike good, caring families. Sadly, most of the time, it was completely avoidable. Today, I am an advocate for safety and injury prevention as I do my best to help those injured by an accident slowly recover and hopefully educate the non-injured so that avoidable accidents are prevented.

I received a Bachelor of Science degree from UNLV. I attended the University of Dayton on an academic scholarship, where I was honored by my selection to the school’s Moot Court Team, and received my Juris Doctorate in 2000. I was admitted to the State Bar of Nevada in 2000, and to the bar of the United States District Court, District of Nevada, in 2005.

Since 2008 I have proudly served on the Board of Governors of my state trial lawyer association, the Nevada Justice Association (NJA), including serving as the Chairperson of both the Membership and the Sponsorship Committees.  I am currently the Secretary of the organization (2014).

In 2010 I was chosen to serve on the American Association for Justice's (AAJ) Board of Governors, as 1 of only 2 Nevada Governors. I am a past Governor of the New Lawyers Division of AAJ, were I was honored with several awards for my for my service to the organization. I also currently serve on AAJ's National Finance Council.

Since 2010 I have been a member of The Injury Board, a collection of plaintiff's trial lawyers from across the country (and Canada!) who are dedicated to protecting the rights and safety of the general public.

Over the past several years I have lectured all over the country to trial lawyer groups on various topics, including: AAJ in New York, CAOC in Maui, STLA in New Orleans, NJAJ in Atlantic City. I have also taught at the Peoples' Law School in Nevada in 2010 and 2012 and lectured to the law students at UNLV's Boyd School of Law.

I handle all areas of personal injury including auto accidents, head and spinal Injuries, slip and fall, workers compensation and wrongful death.


I am proud to support the following charitable organizations:

FEAT (Families for Effective Autism Treatment), Three Square, Children's Heart Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Toys for Tots, Southern Poverty Law Center
