Practice areas

Clayton attended the University of California at Berkeley where he studied business, and later transferred to Brigham Young University where he obtained his Bachelor of Science Degree in Exercise Science in 2006. Clayton graduated from the University of Toledo College of Law in 2012, where he excelled in international business transactions, appellate writing, and estate planning.

After graduating law school, Clayton worked as an associate attorney for five years with the Law Firm of Darl C. Gleed & Associates, LLLC in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, focusing on estate planning, probate, trust administration, business planning, and real estate transactions. During his time in Hawaii, Clayton served in a variety of roles within the Hawaii State Bar Association and local community, including his service as a West Hawaii Director for the Young Lawyer’s Division (2016 – 2018), a scholarship ambassador for the Hawaii Community Foundation (2016 and 2017), a Director with Family Support Services of West Hawaii (2016 – 2018), and served as a Rotarian in the Rotary Club of Kona (2015 – 2018).

After moving from Hawaii to Nevada, Clayton continued to practice in the areas of estate planning, probate, trust administration, business and asset protection planning, guardianship matters, and drafting STARK and Anti-kickback business agreements for physicians and other medical professionals.

Clayton’s practice philosophy is to make things as simple as possible for his clients, while protecting their interests and outlining the pros and cons of a position so the client can make an informed decision. To do this, Clayton works tirelessly to educate and communicate with his clients to make sure they feel comfortable at all stages of the representation and to ensure their needs are met.

In his spare time, Clayton enjoys spending time with his wife Susan and their four young kids, golfing, ocean sports, crossfit, playing the guitar, and reading classical literature.

Awesome service
Hired Clayton for a sell of my business. At first I had many questions all of which were answer and explained so I understand the process. That was a big deal for me. He kept constant communication and even recommended a few thing that were in my best interest and really help protect me in the future. The sale went flawless and he made the experience a positive one. Claytons my guy now and will now use him for anything I need.

Clayton is one of Kona's Finest!
Clayton helped my husband and I to establish not only our company but also complete our estate. Over a series of meetings Clayton has taken the time to get to know us so that our needs were met in a fashion that made us feel comfortable but more importantly, informed. He has been an asset in helping us to navigate all the directions certain decisions made, can affect us in the future. He has made our decision making process very clear when it comes to matters of our business and estate...exactly what we need. Clayton has also been awesome in subsequent business transactions as we have continued to expand our asset column. When we need him...he's there.

Business Formation
Clayton worked with me to acquire a business in Hawaii and to develop the changes needed for our new business entity. Because he had the local knowledge and knew all of the key contacts, he worked to insure that all paperwork filing requirements and permits requirements were handled seamlessly. Clayton's experience and guidance was a critical element . His demonstrated integrity in all of the dealings and his assistance with some unexpected issues met all of my expectations.

Reliable and knowledgeable
Clayton has helped me through the sale of two businesses, the sale and purchase of my homes and setting up my revocable trust. None were easy or quickly dispatched. He was always readily available and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend him, and will rely on him again, I'm sure.

Very professional and timely in helping us with our legal needs
Clayton has helped us with our family construction business many times now. He is very attentive in helping us with contracts, limiting our exposure to liability, and just being available to answer questions as they come up. Clayton and Darl also set up my parents Trust and will, guiding us through the process and helping us to understand the many different aspects involved. We are as happy as can be with the information and service Clayton and his team provide, and will continue to rely on them as the needs arise.
