About our Las Vegas, NV: office

With deep roots in Las Vegas and a legacy of providing exceptional legal counsel, Chesnoff & Schonfeld vigorously pursues justice for the people we represent. Since 1987, our accomplished attorneys have delivered strong advocacy for clients in criminal defense cases and other matters. We’ve built a formidable reputation in Nevada and nationwide by removing the barriers to communication that often exist in other firms and ensuring that our experienced lawyers are fully engaged in each case. The firm’s boutique structure allows our seasoned litigators to handle cases personally rather than delegating tasks to assistants. That’s how we’ve won tough cases, set precedents and established new standards in constitutional, criminal and forfeiture law.

Our practice was founded more than 30 years ago by the Honorable Oscar B. Goodman, former mayor of Las Vegas, and David Z. Chesnoff, a noted criminal defense litigator who lectures widely on cross-examination and other trial techniques. Following Mr. Goodman’s retirement in 2001, Richard A. Schonfeld became a named partner. He brings the same zealous advocacy in asserting clients’ rights that has always defined the practice and exemplifies the firm’s dedication to teamwork that has been in place since Day One.

Mr. Chesnoff, who is AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell®, is known as a “lawyer’s lawyer.” He is listed in numerous professional directories, including The National Directory of Criminal Lawyers, and has appeared on television programs such as 48 Hours, ABC World News Tonight, Nancy Grace, The Charlie Rose Show, American Justice and City Confidential. In describing what distinguishes Chesnoff & Schonfeld from other firms, he says, “We take a case with the understanding that we're taking it to trial.”

      Richard is the best! After "interviewing" several other attorneys about my case, I was most comfortable with Richard. He was not cheap but when your freedom is on the line do you really want cheap? I got what I paid for. Richard was able to get me a very favorable disposition. NO JAIL TIME & NO FINE! No one wants to face criminal prosecution but if you find yourself in that position, do yourself a favor and hire Richard Schonfeld. Read less
