Joseph Fahrendorf

Fahrendorf Law Office
201 Liberty Street, Ste. 202
Reno, NV 89501

I’m Joseph “Joe” Fahrendorf and am proud to carry the tradition, respect and reputation that the name Fahrendorf means in the legal profession in Northern Nevada.

Although I appear in criminal cases on a daily basis throughout Northern Nevada and Northern California, I have a diverse practice that includes representing businesses, family law issues, personal injury, contract negotiation and sports law.

My clients know that I have a strong work ethic which results in accommodating their schedules; therefore, I frequently meet with clients on nights and weekends as I understand how busy their schedules can be. Frankly, my clients are surprised when I actually answer the office phone when the receptionist is unavailable. I take pride in being able to text and call my clients 24/7 as I know how much they need peace of mind.

Speaking of which, I am a proud native Nevadan who began my legal career in Miami where I worked assisting professionals in the sports industry as an NFLPA certified contract advisor as well as in insurance defense law. I firmly believe in giving back to my community as I currently sit on the Board of Directors for Reno Tahoe Young Professionals Network. While in law school, I created a program with the Miami Dolphins where we helped educate high school student athletes about their constitutional rights.

With respect to my education, I am proud of my accomplishments. I graduated Magna Cum Laude and was an Articles Editor on Law Review from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. During my undergraduate career, I also graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Miami in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Sport Administration where I achieved the #1 class rank in the major.

Upon graduating from college, I worked several years for the Miami Dolphins in their youth and community relations department helping to improve the lives of children and teens in South Florida.

I am licensed to practice in all courts in the states of Nevada, California, and Florida. Want to know more? Don’t hesitate to ask!

I am a member of the Nevada Bar Association, the Washoe County Bar Association and the California DUI Lawyers Association.
