Joel’s practice is devoted solely to criminal law. He represents clients in a broad range of areas, from murder to drug charges to misdemeanors. No matter the size of the case, Joel is devoted to fighting for his clients and obtaining the best possible outcomes for them.
He has argued and won before the Nevada Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. He is among the few attorneys in Nevada (and the country) who is sworn in before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Joel’s efforts have resulted in many acquittals, dismissals and sentence reductions for his clients.
“I enjoy helping people out when they’re in their most desperate situations,” Joel says of his practice. “I do not accept it when the government is telling me that ‘this is the way it is.’ I go out and fight for my client’s rights no matter who is telling me.”
In addition to his busy legal practice, Joel devotes time to the Nevada Attorneys for Criminal Justice, serving as president of that organization from 2009 to 2010 and earning the organization’s Outstanding Service and Leadership award. He is also a member of the National Organization of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
Additionally, Joel serves as a board member of the Las Vegas Anti-Defamation League and serves on the board of his synagogue, where he is a past president.
