Gary graduated college from the University of California, Los Angeles and then earned his Juris
Doctor from Loyola Law School, Los Angeles. After successfully passing the California bar exam and practicing law in southern California for a brief time, Gary relocated to Nevada in 1986 where he became a Financial Consultant for a large prestigious national brokerage firm. The following year, Gary successfully passed the Nevada bar exam and a few years later again re-immersed himself in the practice of law here in Las Vegas. During his distinguished legal career, Gary has been an associate in five different Nevada law firms prior to joining Ford & Friedman during Spring, 2018. Gary has also worked in his own legal practice. His legal experience includes family law, guardianship, child custody, child support, criminal defense representation, mass tort litigation, personal injury and general civil law. Gary’s practice of law has taken him to all municipal courts in Southern Nevada, as well as most Clark County Justice Courts and District Courts in both Clark County and Nye County.
Gary raised two children here in Las Vegas who continue to thrive in their work accomplishments in our community. They bring Gary and his extended family great joy. When not working, Gary enjoys spending time with his children, family and friends as well as traveling with his partner, enjoying good food and availing himself of the many outdoor activities available in Southern Nevada.
