Sandy Van is the managing partner and founder of Van Law Firm Injury and Accident Attorneys, a personal injury, mass tort, and sex abuse litigation law firm located in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Lakewood, and Yakima, Washington, and Legal Support Help, a legal staffing company. She is a personal injury attorney licensed to practice law in Nevada state and federal courts and Washington state and federal courts. She also has co-counsel relationships with attorneys nationwide and accepts cases nationwide.

The first stage of Ms. Van’s career was spent handling civil litigation, business litigation, contract disputes, and other matters for various local firms. Then in 2012, she founded Van Law Firm with just two other employees. In the years since the firm has grown to a staff of over 100. Van Law Firm currently has two locations--one in Las Vegas and the other in Lakewood, Washington.

In her practice thus far, Ms. Van has amassed numerous awards and industry honors. Nevada Business Press named her one of the state’s “Legal Elite” from 2013-2016, and again in 2018. In both 2014 and 2015, Desert Companion Magazine awarded Sandy the Top Lawyer award, and Super Lawyers included her in their “Rising Stars'' category every year from 2015-2019. Ms. Van has also been awarded Avvo’s Client’s Choice Award 7 times and counting.

Ms. Van is an alumna of the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and remains an active member of the Boyd Alumni Association. Prior to law school, she also earned a Bachelor of Science degree in finance from UNLV as well.

Client service and versatility are both hallmarks of Van Law Firm, as tailored strategies are applied to each case depending on the accident itself and the specific insurers involved. Unlike most successful firms, VLF only takes on a certain number of cases at any given time, which ensures that each case gets the attention it deserves in order to recover maximum compensation. Clients have recognized these efforts with over 500 5-star reviews across Avvo, Google, and Yelp.

Above all, Ms. Van and the entire Van Law Firm staff are passionate about serving the community. Over the years, she has donated tens of thousands of dollars and countless hours to various causes such as local food banks and supply drives for Clark County students and teachers. This sense of community also extends nationwide, as Ms. Van has also contributed to hurricane relief efforts and natural disasters across the country.

Always Professional, Hightly Recommended
I recommend Sandy anytime someone mentions that they need a trustworthy lawyer. Sandy and her team are very responsive, attentive and extremely thorough. Any questions I had were immediately answered and I was kept up to date on what to expect and when. Sandy's personal attentiveness and follow through with her clients never make you feel as if you are just another number or forgotten about, which is one of the most important qualities a law firm should have. I have used Sandy for multiple cases and have been extremely pleased with every outcome. She is very well rounded and educated with every case in which she has represented me. Thank You Sandy for always being so consistent and considerate!

Great Team !
The team at Van Law Firm is absolutely amazing. Every person working there was professional, warm, helpful, patient, and made me feel comfortable and important. Karin in particular went above and beyond by not only being a dynamite case manger, but also a very thoughtful counselor listening to my anxieties and offering words of advice and comfort. He fought hard on my behalf even when I was overwhelmed and ready to give up

Best personal injury law firm
There are many personal firms with great reviews however Van Law Firm is definitely TOP TIER when it comes to personal injury. I was in a car accident about 6 months ago and I reached out to Karin from Van Law Firm. I’ve known Karin for about 14 years now and I knew I could trust him and Van Law Firm to help me with my accident. Karin and his team were able to get me seen with a primary care provider, a chiropractor and pain management specialist. I am thankful for their assistance and their hard work. I will highly recommend their office for any car accidents. Van Law Firm and their staff fights for their clients. A big special thanks to Piero, Ehrlish, attorney, Angela Campos, and my Case Manager, Karin. The absolute best of the best !!

The help I needed.
I had never been in an accident before, so it was a little overwhelming. I was recommended Van law firm by someone that seen my accident. I initially going to just take the loss, but I called and Norma and her crew took my case and lead me in the right direction. I had no medical insurance, so they fought extremely had to get all my bills reduced. They helped get me referrals to be seen and get the medical attention I needed. Then they did something unprecedented, the reduced their fees, so it would not be a wash for me. At the end of the day, they helped me so much. I was able to recover and have peace of mind. Thank you

Van Law Firm is Fantastic
Sandy Law firm, I highly recommend It was on September 4th I will never forget that day. I was badly hurt and needed surgery immediately on my right wrist . During this time I met someone who highly recommend Sandy Von Law firm. During my healing process , I got in touch with Sandy Von Law firm company , the one who was highly recommend to me. When I called they were immediately helpful and understanding. It was a very difficult time for me , not only was I dealing with my situation and with my therapy . I was also taken care of my husband, who was very ill , and had four different surgeries during the time I was healing from my wrist. It became very difficult for me since I only had one good arm and hand to Minister his IVs and care , when he was sent home from the hospital . I continued my therapy in between the care of my husband whether he was at home or the hospital. Many times I had to leave my therapy because of the possibility of him, not making it through the day. It was a very tough situation for me. I don't think I could've made it through without my family and Sandy Von Law firm. My husband of 35 years of marriage passed away, and that alone made it much more difficult , emotionally and physically for me as you can imagine . I like to give a huge thanks to them all , especially Sandy Von , and my attorney, Burke and their staff, Jose, who text me and called me on a consistent basis with updates. Ruth, who was always there to guide me through my paperwork. They were pretty attentive to me. Thank you so much

Extremely satisfied with the outcome
The whole process was smooth & pretty fast in my opinion. After being hit in July 2023, all I could keep thinking about was how dreadful this whole process was going to be & if the person responsible for reversing into me was actually going to admit to fault since she reversed into the front of my car, which she did not. Karin is a really great a friend of mine & I knew right away to reach out to him. He pulled up 20 minutes later. He kept me informed right from the beginning & throughout the whole process. She might’ve not admitted guilt, but Karin was able to get this case resolved & I’m extremely satisfied with the outcome. Hire Van Law Firm & ask for Karin. Trust me you won’t regret it! From the day I got hit to the day I received the check, 104 days total. Thank you Karin & Van Law!! :)
