Michael Root has been representing Las Vegas since 1982
My grandfather was a lawyer, my father was a lawyer, and I started working with my father in 1982 litigating criminal and family law cases. In 1982 I passed the bar after graduating CUM LAUDE from California Western School of Law. I was accepted into the US Navy as a Judge Advocate General (i.e., lawyer in the Navy), and I tried many felony and misdemeanor criminal cases, I was in charge of the Navy's equivalent to the Personal Injury Section for a year, and I gained much criminal and civil experience.
In 1986, I was honorably discharged from the Navy, and I entered private practice with my father. Even since, I have tried many criminal (both felony and misdemeanor) cases, family law cases, and personal injury cases. I also did Chapter 7 Bankruptcies for almost 20 years.
My practice now centers on contracts, criminal, personal injury, all family law (divorce, TPO, child custody), and general civil litigation. and my hourly fee of $250.00 per hour (negotiable) is lower than most other attorneys, simply because my overhead is lower. I also have a paralegal service for those who cannot afford an attorney. I believe in justice, and my one goal is to serve my client's best interest, always.
