I began my career as an Insurance Defense LItigator before staring my own practice. Shortly after that, I was a Founding Partner of Shook & Stone, Chtd., one of Nevada's preeminent Injury and Disability law firms. We have three offices throughout Nevada, in Las Vegas, Reno, and Carson City.
Our law firm is recognized by our clients and the Community for both our trial and negotiation skills and integrity.
Outside of my practice, I am deeply committed to serving our Community. I have served on the Boards and Committees of several Non-profit Organizations, based upon my desire to make a positive impact upon my world. Among my positions, I am the Immediate Past Chair of the Jewish Federation of Las Vegas, and was recently recognized by the Las Vegas Community for my efforts by the Nevada Cancer Foundation.
My greatest joy, however, comes from my family. My wife and children inspire, motivate, and encourage me to be the finest trial attorney and human being possible. I will humbly continue working toward that goal.
