I'm an attorney with Allison MacKenzie, Ltd where I practice labor and employment law with a primary focus on representing managment. Prior to joining Allison MacKenzie, I served as the State of Nevada Labor Commissioner . I have extensive experience in the areas of wage and hour, labor and employment law, union issues, prevailing wage and public works. Additionally, I have a proven track record of engaging with the Nevada business community, including conducting numerous trainings on wage and hour compliance with small business groups.

Thoran helped my company in a time when I didn't think there would be a solution to our employee problem. He has a creative way that he views issues and always finds a way to help.

Excellent employment/labor law attorney
I found Mr. Towler to be very knowledgeable about Nevada labor/employment law. He was willing to answer all of my questions, including how the law applies in certain scenarios (i.e. how overtime applies to employees working a 4-10 schedule, my recordkeeping obligations for non-exempt and exempt employees, etc.). I would highly recommend Mr. Towler to other business owners seeking guidance on employment law issues.
