Ms. Young was born and raised in Henderson, Nevada. She began working for this firm in 2010, while she was still in law school, and became an associate attorney in 2012, when she passed the Nevada Bar exam. Ms. Young has handled family, medical malpractice, personal injury, employment, labor, and appellate law cases. Ms. Young worked her way through college and law school in the medical and retail fields. This employment background, combined with her legal training, gives her a unique perspective on client concerns in various fields of law. In addition to being second chair in both bench and jury trials, Ms. Young has handled the briefing and oral argument preparation in complex appellate matters, including personal injury, employment, and family law.
Through her experience in each of these areas, Ms. Young learned how important it is to build a relationship with each of her clients to ensure that the client’s rights and interests are protected. It is through this collaborative approach that she is able to achieve each client’s personal goals and the best result.
Her hands-on approach was instrumental in the firm’s recent victory in Kogod v. Kogod, 135 Nev. Adv. Op. No. 9 (2019). That case presented complex issues relating to alimony and community waste.
Ms. Young has been the second chair to Mr. Marks in numerous bench and jury trials. This trial experience, combined with her appellate experience, enables her to form a strategy early in a case taking into account how various issues will mature during trial or on appeal.
