Now in its ninth year, Legal Elite highlights Nevada’s top attorneys as chosen by their peers. Polling for the 2016 list began in February of this year and over 6,000 nominations were collected from licensed attorneys throughout the state. Those nominees were vetted and the poll’s results, featured in the following pages, highlight the top vote receivers in Northern Nevada, Southern Nevada, the Best Up and Coming attorneys and the top Government attorneys.
According to the 2015 Annual Report, published by the State Bar of Nevada, there are 8,818 active member attorneys. That’s an increase over last year’s figure with 321 new licensed attorneys added in the reporting period. Additionally, with 12,090 students in law-related education (LRE) programs, that number is only expected to go up. The attorneys featured in Legal Elite have beat out some tough competition and are ranked by their peers as the best of the best.
