About Sean

Learn Sean’s areas of practice.

I have been practicing law for the last decade, and absolutely love it. I got a bit of a late start, spending time as a correctional officer and a network engineer before deciding what I want to be when I grow up. I graduated from the University of Idaho College of Law at the age of 38. My first 8 years of practice were at the Washoe County District Attorney's office. I have worked the last two years with Joey Gilbert Law as the head of the criminal law department. I am now opening my own office with the help of my loving and supporting wife. I will be focusing on criminal law, but will also handle personal injury, immigration, and select business law cases.

Great outcome thanks to Atty. Neahusan
Sean was able to reduce my five charges down to one that allowed me to retain my license and provided a positive outcome going forward. He also exhausted every option in order to get me my desired outcome as well. I would highly recommend Sean for your legal needs.

Thank you!
Sean did a outstanding job getting an old case dismissed. I was really stressed out and in a rough spot, he really helped me. I’d recommend him to anyone, and hire him all over again if I had to. Thanks again Sean!

Sean
Sean gave me the outcome possibilities ahead of time When he came out of the courtroom with a big smile and said your case has been dismissed! I was so happy I could have cried! What a relief! Thank you Sean!

Sean Neahusan
I had a problem with a neighbor and Mr. Neahusan was consulted on the matter. He has been very helpful and has offered to attend several meetings about this matter. It feels nice to know that you have such a knowledgeable individual in your corner. I have seen Mr. Neahusan when he worked as a prosecutor and I am confident that he will be just as effective as a defense attorney.

Honest, caring, a rare find!
Sean is currently helping with my divorce. He is and always has been dedicated to my welfare first. Sean took care of all the filings in a timely manner and keeps me posted as to the status. He is honest and caring. I will continue to recommend him to anyone needing professional legal advice.

A go get'em
Sean is an amazing lawyer. After months of fighting and over an hour in the court room he got my sentencing reduced and almost dropped. Very proactive and has you get everything done way before even going to court. Very clear on what's going to happen and what to look forward too. Highly recommend Sean.

Do not hire
DO NOT hire this lawyer. The judge had to explain to him how to file the correct paperwork. He refused to return phone calls and emails for 3 months and even changed a court date and did not notify me. I found out while I was checking in to court that day. He literally closed his doors (to start another practice ) on me and I'm assuming other clients as well because his secretary said she was fed up with it. I did file a complaint with the NV Bar and I'm awaiting the outcome. I made a mistake by paying him $ 7500 in full from the start. He demonstrated lack of knowledge and communication and did not even attempt to defend me at all.
