LAS VEGAS, April 20, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The Nevada Justice Association has named Las Vegas Lawyer Peter S. Christiansen the recipient of the “Litigation Attorney of the Year 2021” award. Christiansen was chosen by his fellow litigators to receive this prestigious award, one of the highest accolades a litigator can earn in the state.
Las Vegas attorney Peter S. Christiansen has been named Trial Attorney of the Year 2021 by the Nevada Justice Association. He is a founding partner and lead litigation attorney at Christiansen Trial Lawyers.
Christiansen is a founding partner and lead litigator at Christiansen Trial Lawyers, a boutique law firm that focuses solely on catastrophic personal injury and criminal cases, as well as fraud and commercial disputes. He has served clients in state and federal courts since 1994 Nevada and hundreds of personal injury and criminal defense cases brought to justice with a proven track record.
“This award reflects Pete’s decades of dedication to fighting for the underprivileged and winners – despite taking on cases that most thoughts failed to win,” says R. Todd Terry, who was one of several attorneys who nominated Christiansen for the honor. “His commitment to justice is unwavering, and even in a year marked by a global pandemic and widespread deadlocks, he continued to attempt new cases and negotiate significant settlements for his clients – all without firing a single company employee.”
In addition to being recognized as Trial Attorney of the Year, Christiansen is widely recognized as one of the youngest attorneys ever to be admitted to the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers, a group of exceptional trial lawyers nominated only at the invitation of their peers and members of the judiciary. The honor is only given to those who “have demonstrated the highest standards of legal representation, ethical behavior, professionalism and integrity”.
Christiansen also takes an active role in promoting legal education in the state Nevada by teaching continuing education courses and as an associate professor and by contributing considerable time and resources UNLV’s William S. Boyd School The Law.
The Nevada The Board of Governors of Justice will officially present Christiansen with the award “Litigation Attorney of the Year 2021” at its annual summer gala Las Vegas on June 24th.
