You might be asking yourself why we are called The Patriot Law Firm.
You might think it is political in nature. This is not the case.
Well, the name originated to respect the sacrifices of my Grandfathers and family members. We have many Patriots in my family. I am so proud of each and every one of them!
My biological paternal grandfather, Vernon Dale Huddleston, gave his life for our country in World War II on July 4, 1942. His story is listed at the bottom of this page. He was the original Patriot.
My adoptive paternal grandfather, Daniel Madison Burk, served honorably in the United States Navy in World War II and the Korean War. One of his ships was sunk and somehow he managed to survive the wreckage.
My maternal grandfather, James Raymond Perrin, served in the United States Army and served in Europe during World War II.
I was born in England during a time in which my father served abroad as a Civilian in the United States Air Force. After a few years overseas. My father then accepted a job at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. I was raised in a nearby suburb of Beavercreek. As a youngster, I participated in club soccer, track, basketball, and wrestling. My first job was working at a local McDonalds when I was 15 years old. I worked various jobs including grocery stores, delivering pizzas, and construction.
After graduating from Beavercreek High School, I went on to earn two degrees from “THE” Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. After graduation, my passion for the Law took me to San Diego, California to attend law school. While attending Thomas Jefferson School of Law, I was elected Student-Body President.
Despite going to a rather small law school, I was also elected as the National Vice-Chair for the American Bar Association – Law Student Division. This was a tremendous honor as this position was elected by the student body presidents of each law school all across the country. Finally, in my last year in law school, I was also appointed by the Dean to the prestigious Faculty-Selection Committees and the Diversity Committees.
Preparing for my career as a litigator, I was selected for the law school’s Mock Trial (1st team) I competed in several regional and national mock trial competitions. I also gained valuable courtroom experience by interning for the San Diego Alternate Public Defender’s Office for my last two years in law school. I donate my time and efforts to local veterans and the Paralyzed Veterans of Nevada here in Las Vegas.
Since 2004, I have tried numerous cases involving car crashes, slip and falls, construction defect housing, criminal matters, civil litigation, and medical professional licensing.
I am currently a member of the State Bar of Nevada, State Bar of Arizona, State Bar of California, the Nevada Justice Association (formerly the Nevada Trial Lawyers Association), and the Arizona Trial Lawyers Association. I am admitted to practice law in Nevada, Arizona, and California. I passed all three state bar exams on the first try. I am also admitted to practice in Federal Courts in Nevada, Arizona, and California.
