Mr. Young is one of the most outstanding trial attorneys in the State of Nevada. His reputation for competence, integrity and professionalism is exemplary.

I presided at a very difficult criminal trial in which Mr. Young represented a nurse charged with sexual assault of elderly patients. It was an extraordinary case and extremely difficult to defend. At the conclusion of the lengthy trial, Mr. Young's client was acquitted. In my tenure as a trial judge, I have never seen a better example of zealous and professional advocacy.
