About Jamie

Learn Jamie’s areas of practice.

Jamie Cogburn co-founded Cogburn Law Offices in 2005 with the goal to fight for those who could not fight for themselves. Jamie grew up in Sherman, Texas, before moving to Reno, Nevada, where Jamie graduated from Reno High School. Jamie earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Nevada and graduated cum laude from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in 2003. After law school, Jamie worked for the Honorable Ron Parraguirre as a judicial law clerk before working at a prominent law firm in Las Vegas.

Jamie is honored to serve on the Board of Governors for his state’s trial lawyer association, the Nevada Justice Association. In addition, Jamie also acts as a Trustee for Citizens for Justice, wherein he fights for consumers’ rights in the state legislature. Although Jamie is actively involved in protecting the local community from the abuses of insurance companies, he dedicates a tremendous amount of time to helping those in financial need. Jamie founded the non-profit organization, Give to Learn, wherein they provide scholarships to children who have overcome an adversity in their life. Prior to becoming President of Give To Learn, Jamie donated his time and resources to other charities, such as Three Square Food Bank, Boys and Girls Club and Shade Tree. Cogburn Law Offices offers an annual need-based scholarship to an individual who has overcome great adversity.

Jamie is dedicated to taking cases to trial, which is evidenced by his jury verdicts and awards he has received throughout his career. Jamie is an AV rated trial attorney and is a member of the prestigious Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, an impressive group of trial lawyers who have settled a case or won a trial for $2,000,000 or more. Less than 1% of lawyers in the United States qualify for membership. Since 2010, Jamie has been identified as a Super Lawyer Rising Star, an honor bestowed to less than 5% of the best and brightest lawyers under the age of 40. Jamie has also been voted into the “Top 40 Under 40” by the National Trial Lawyers year after year.

Jamie’s areas of practice include personal injury, wherein he represents individuals injured due to the actions of others. In addition, Jamie also practices in the area of consumer protection, wherein he represents individuals against large corporations. On behalf of consumers, he has taken on multiple class action cases with great success.
Outside the office, Jamie spends time with his wife Kristin, who is his law partner, and his two sons, Cole and Carter. Jamie enjoys traveling, playing golf and spending time with his family and friends.

First class job for us
Jamie and their office were a blessing to us. We had nowhere to turn, had been told our short sale would go through with the realtor and it did not. Jamie pulled it through int he last minute. I would recommend them to my best friend.

Excellent Job on Our Short Sale
Jamie did a great job of getting our short sale through when others promised and did nothing. Thank you so much to Jamie and the rest of the Cogburn Law Offices. I highly recommend them to represent you in getting a short sale done.

Quick, effective service
I used Mr. Cogburn in the Short Sale of my rental property. The service team was surprisingly responsive and they gave me updates if not weekly, every other week so I knew what was happening each step of the way through the process. They were fast - the Short Sale took about 4 months to sell, get approvals and then finally close. And the service charge was very reasonable for everything that they did.

Car accident Attorney | Feb 13
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer without hesitation. Jamie Cogburn and his wonderful team of attorneys and staff members have handled an array of car accidents and civil litigation from the smallest of case to the largest.

"I have worked both with and against Mr. Cogburn. He is an outstanding lawyer. I regularly refer clients to him due to his expertise in the fields he practices."
Personal injury Attorney | Feb 13
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"If you talk to Jamie, he will tell you that being a lawyer is calling. Jamie takes great pride in knowing that his clients have chosen him to be their champion and to fight for them. Jamie honors that trust by truly caring about his clients. He believes it is impossible to fight for somebody, unless you actually care about them. Unlike many lawyers, Jamie is not afraid to go to trial to fight for his clients. In fact, he loves it. Since Jamie is willing to go the distance by taking his cases to trial, insurance companies quickly realize that their low-ball settlement offers will never be accepted. At the end of the day, we all want somebody in our corner, who is willing to fight for us, and not treat us like a number - and Jamie gets it. I wholeheartedly and strongly recommend (and have recommended) Jamie as an attorney for anybody in need of a champion to fight for them."
