The Litigation Toolbox

I am a Nevada business litigator, arbitrator, and mediator with experience litigating thousands of disputes as a litigator, arbitrator, Judge Pro Tem, and Special Master. This Litigation Toolbox is designed to assist those involved in litigation in Nevada state or federal courts to navigate the process. My aim is for this Toolbox to be a knowledge resource center for litigants and advocates, and for those trying to understand the process better.  Please feel free to reach out to me if there are resources that should be added to this Toolbox.
