Boyd Alumni and Adjunct Professors Named to Top Lawyers List

Forty-one William S. Boyd School of Law alumni and two adjunct professors were recently named top lawyers in Southern Nevada.

Editors of the October issue of Desert Companion magazine worked with Seattle-based Avvo, a company that rates attorneys nationwide, to compile a list of 346 leading lawyers in Southern Nevada. The article reads, “Avvo’s proprietary algorithm rates all attorneys on a 10-point scale, factoring in peer endorsements as well as experience, education, training, speaking, publishing and awards. These dynamic ratings are continuously refreshed based on new information gleaned from attorneys, as well as from licensing and disciplinary authorities.”

Desert Companion’s top lawyers list identified a number of Boyd alumni and adjunct professors, including the following:
