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.

Divorce is a challenge...Regina can help.
Regina was professional, eager to listen and showed compassion as we discussed by situation. She exhibited great communication skills and you could tell she had a passion for the law and my wellbeing. I feel extremely fortunate she is representing me. She has my highest regard and I would recommend her without hesitation.

Divorce
Handling legal matters is typically an unpleasant experience when it comes to divorce and personal situations. When I first time met Regina, I had a very good impression of her and most importantly, I felt very comfortable talking with her. After my first hour consultation with her, I knew she was the right lawyer for me. She was very attentive. She patiently listened when I talked. She asked me questions and impressed me with her experience and knowledge as a divorce lawyer. Because of her advice, I solved my legal issues smoothly and peacefully. She is an honest and caring divorce lawyer. Regina is not there to "steal" your money. I am one of many people concerned that lawyers can be like vampires … sucking you dry. Regina never gave me any cause for concern and I very much appreciated her advice and counsel.

Real...and Comforting for a recently single Father
Regina came recommend to me by a really good friend that I trust. She is my first lawyer I will ever use and will also likely be the last one since I wantto keep her around dealing with my custody issues. She runs a really organized ship and that's what I need when I look for representation! I only wish I called her months ago, or I may have not been in this situation today.

Kind, Fair, knowledgeable and caring -- all in one!
I was afraid to visit with a lawyer, not only for the cost but of the outcome and drama that could come out. However, upon meeting with Regina, I immediately felt comfortable and after she calmly took the time to review, explain and suggest on my case, I felt accomplished and knowledgeable myself! Very professional! As for the cost...worth it and reasonable. I RECOMMEND REGINA!

Factual and Focused without the Drama
Found Regina to be competent and more effective in our 1 and a half hour meeting than with the costly Summerlin based egomaniac lawyer I fired. She figured out what has been done and NOT done on my case as we sat there and outlined the progression from there. She listened to my concerns and my desires for the outcome. Both parties want the divorce to end sooner than later but it was the lawyers previously hired that were causing the drama. I was glad she is the captain of her own ship because I found working with numerous paralegals --who do 80 % of the work elsewhere-- can result in numerous communication breakdowns if the office is not well managed. She is representing me and I like her style of representation.

Truly Caring
"I've had the pleasure of knowing Regina for a number of years now. She is not only a highly skilled lawyer, but a genuinely caring individual. Regina works extremely hard to help those she works for resolve very difficult situations with tremendous compassion. Unlike many lawyers, her goal is to help couples resolve their differences amicably, without giving everything they've work for to lawyers who may want the fight to continue. Her care and compassion, and her ability to help people see the "bigger picture" and make decisions that are mutually beneficial to both parties are traits that have helped her to receive not only accolades from her clients, but from her contemporaries within the law community itself. If you are in need of smart, compassionate, and genuinely caring professional... Regina McConnell is who you should be talking to!"

Complicated divorce situation
My spouse and I met with Ms. McConnell to discuss hiring her to finalize our divorce paperwork. We have been working with a divorce financial analyst who assisted us over the last few months, but felt our situation was more complicated than normal (after 37 years of marriage) and wanted to be sure everything would be filed correctly. We hired Ms. McConnell, confident that she will give the attention to detail we require. She is very knowledgeable, did not rush us or push us to make decisions and made it clear she was representing both of us and requested we communicate with each other whenever we communicate with her so there would be no appearance of her taking sides in our case. We both felt she is very competent and will do her best to represent us and our situation.

Compassionate and knowledgable
I retained Regina because of some difficulties with my custody schedule and conflict with my ex-husband. Regina listened compassionately to my issues, clearly and knowledgeably informed me of my rights and options, and helped resolve my issues without going to court. She communicated effectively with my ex-husbands attorney and stood firm on my requests. I felt relief about my situation from my first meeting with Regina. I would recommend her to anyone facing family legal issues.

I love Gina. She was so easy to work with. She helped me through my divorce and custody problems and knew exactly what she was doing. More than that I really got along with her and appreciated how she treated me and my son.

I appreciate the time you spent with me on the issues I presented. You clearly know the law and are worth your weight in gold!
