Joey Gilbert was born in Chicago, Illinois but moved with his family to Sparks, Nevada and attended Our Lady of the Snows Parochial School in Reno between 5th and 8th grade. He then graduated from Bishop Manogue Catholic High School in Reno, Nevada. Later, Joey attended the University of Nevada and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree, majoring in English Literature & Political Science, with an emphasis on foreign affairs and minored in Italian. He spent 6 months living, training and traveling in northern Europe during the summer and fall of 1998, through a study abroad program based in Torino, (Turin) Italy.

As a collegiate fighter at the University of Nevada, Joey Gilbert was a three-time National Champion, a four-time Regional Champion, a four-time All American, and was the Nevada State Golden Gloves Super Middleweight Champion in 2000.

Mr. Gilbert earned his Juris Doctorate (JD-Law Degree) and graduated from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, California. He then passed the Nevada bar exam in 2004.

In 2004, Mr. Gilbert was cast in NBC’s The Contender, working along side Sylvester Stallone, Sugar Ray Leonard, and other talented boxers. Mr. Gilbert’s love of prizefighting ultimately led him to become ranked #3 in the world according to the World Boxing Organization (WBO) and #7 in the world under the World Boxing Council (WBC). Gilbert is the former WBO-NABO and WBC-USNBC Middleweight Champion with a record of 20-3, with 16 knockouts.

Outside of the ring, Mr. Gilbert continues to train and condition as if he were still preparing to go 12 rounds. His work ethic, dedication and persistence have helped him achieve every goal and challenge set in front of him. He has practiced law since 2004 in numerous areas; however, he focuses on criminal and civil trial practice and specific areas of sports and entertainment law. Joey Gilbert & Associates was formed with one thing in mind – Deliver the highest quality legal representation in all areas of the law through efficient, aggressive, and honest lawyers.

Amazing Service!
Carlos consulted me on a case of embezzlement and I was scheduled for an appearance in court in January. However, thanks to Joey and his amazing team they were able to get my court appearance dismissed! Thank you all so much for your hard work and wonderful service!

Found at fault by the state of Nevada in a fender bender.
I called Joey Gilbert Law from out of state. They advised me that Nevada considers at fault to be criminal misdemeanor. The office was open 24/7, Bianca took my information. She got back to me with quote from Joey. They took my case. They were always available. Answered all my questions. The customer service was excellent. My case was dismissed. I’ve had several lawyers, many of them ineffective and difficult. Joey and his team was one of the best. I highly recommend him. I will use him if need be in the future.

Joey is the Best!
I've made a lot of mistakes in my life - hiring Joey was NOT one of them! After being struck by a car while riding my bike, my back and knees were wrecked (back from being struck, knees from landing. Not fun). Not only was he incredibly helpful and proactive in my case, he helped me to get a settlement that was MUCH larger than what insurance was trying to offer me! He's the man!

Proactive, Hard Working, Professional & Results!!
I was in a really tough situation and felt totally helpless.. These lawyers are strait forward, proactive, and they communicated with me throughout the entire process. They let me know they were in my corner and fighting for me. They made all the difference through my experience and I would recommend them to anyone! And the outcome could not have been any better! One of the best decisions Ive ever made!

Great job
Joey, Sean, Ryan and Carlos handled our criminal case. They were able to reduce the jail sentencing in half on a probation violation. Throughout the process, they were very patient, compassionate and knowledgeable during the stressful ordeal. They were very attentive to to our barrage of questions via e-mail and phone. Would highly recommend them to those in need of criminal defense.

Out of state huge help!
I am an out of state client. I was visiting Reno and got into legal trouble. Very first thing was that Joey Gilbert Law was the only firm that answered my call after 5pm. By the time I realized I would have to be present for my first court hearing it was after normal business hours in Reno. From the first moment they were very caring and worked with me on being able to make payments. They also reassured me that they would do everything they could to handle my case. During the case Carlos whom worked with me over the phone was very helpful in letting me know the exact steps I needed to take to help my case. I followed their instructions. I was worried having a battery charge against me. The firm worked hard and by the end of my case I received the best news possible my case was dismissed. I never had to travel from Kansas back to Reno once. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and I couldn't be happier with their service and the outcome. They helped me take a very stressful situation and make it much better. I can't say enough good about how they handled my case and treated me!

Personal injury accident
I was involved in a serious motor accident, and didn't have any health insurance mid treatment post accident. I came to Joey's office, and was assisted by his paralegal Diana Sims who was very helpful an detailed about the case. She and Mr. Stevenson were able to get me a substantial settlement. I highly recommend Joey Gilbert law to anyone who has been in an accident as well.

Great Lawyer and great person.
I would highly recommend Joey and his staff. They are knowledgeable, kind, and courteous. I was really nervous about what was going to happen to me in court. They told me not to worry I was in good hands. They were right, I was. I never even seen a court room. He lowered the charge that was originally set. Then he got it thrown out of court completely. Joey and his staff saved me my job. I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do I will not hesitate to call Joey Gilbert.

Joey Gilbert Law was a great place when I needed help and a lawyer. Very helpful and nice. Special shout out to their paralegal Diana Sims for all the help she gave me and all she did to help get my case settled. Would strongly recommend them to anyone who is looking for someone to help fight for you.

Joey and his team are simply the best at what they do!
Joey and his team are by far the most knowledgeable, caring and trustworthy people I have met. These are good people who want nothing more than to help others get through a hard time in their lives with a favorable result. I came to Joey after I made a mistake on my birthday and ended up being charged with a felony, which could ruin my life. Mr. Gilbert immediately helped me from the second I called him and even gave me his personal cell phone number. The best part about Joey is he is extremely proactive. He told me exactly what I should do to help my case and I set out to do those things. The best advice I can give to you when you hire Joey is to listen and do everything he says, this guy knows what he is talking about. From the time I was released from jail up to my hearing date, Joey and his team kept me informed on what was going on and checked up on me to make sure things were going well. When the time came for the initial meeting with the District Attorney I had completed all the tasks Joey had set out for me and boy did that come in handy. Within 10 minutes of speaking to the DA Joey was able to drop my felony charge to a simple misdemeanor charge that would be off my record in 2 years and I would serve no additional time. I was simply in shock. Not only did we avoid court entirely but thanks to Mr. GIlbert's guidance this rough time in my life was coming to a close. This could not have been possible without the help of Joey and his team of Miss Kay and Mr. Lucas Sprenkel. I would recommend Joey Gilbert Law to anyone for any legal problem. This man cares about your well being and that is hard to find these days.

Best lawyer
Mr. Gilbert is an expert in criminal law and absolutely great in what he does! He is proactive, intelligent, and motivated to help you to resolve the issue as fast as possible. I am a dad that received a call from my son that was in jail on a felony charge on Saturday morning. I was so worried beyond belief. I contacted Mr. Gilbert and after talking to him I became calm because I realized that we were in good hands. He was out of jail by 6pm on Saturday and the case was closed in a month without stepping foot in a courtroom with a happy conclusion. This was due to the fact that he gave us actions to take and we followed his direction and he convinced the District Attorney to drop the Felony charge. I highly recommend Mr. Gilbert for his expertise and honesty and hope that you will do the same for your sake in this difficult time.
