The State Bar of Nevada’s 2014 Annual Report affirms that there are 8,680 active member attorneys. Of that number, 3,527 members reported 122,647 hours of direct pro bono representation and 1,288 members reported 87,720 hours of service to the community through law related activities. It’s clear that attorneys in the Silver State are active, valuable members of the community.
This year’s list features 300 attorneys on the Northern and Southern Nevada lists, one-third of whom represent the north end of the state. In addition, nearly 50 Best Up and Coming attorneys are included and just over 20 Government attorneys are listed. In order to be included, attorneys passed several levels of scrutiny. After nominations closed, ballots were reviewed for eligibility and each voting attorney was vetted through the State Bar of Nevada to confirm their good standing.
