KZA’s Take On Nevada’s 2020 Judicial Election

Volume: 19 | Issue: 59
September 21, 2020

Voting for Nevada’s general election begins on October 17, 2020. Among the contested races on this year’s ballot are several judicial seats, including those for the Nevada Supreme Court, the Eighth Judicial District Court, the Family Court Division and Justices of the Peace. The pandemic has put all of the judicial candidates in a very difficult and uncomfortable position, as their campaign events and efforts have necessarily been restricted.

As one of the highest-ranked law firms in southern Nevada, Kamer Zucker Abbott (KZA) receives requests from our clients and friends each election cycle as to our recommendations among the judicial candidates. Our firm is privileged to work with many qualified judges and attorneys in our practice, and the quality of Nevada’s judicial bench is extremely important to us and our clients. We are pleased that our years of experience before Nevada’s courts and administrative bodies and our long-standing membership in the Nevada legal community enable us to provide input as to which lawyers and judges we believe can offer Nevada the best and most ethical judicial service.

This year, we have decided to publish our recommendations among the judicial candidates. We have listed below the judicial seats you will see as contested on the 2020 ballot and which individual KZA, as a firm, recommends for that seat, if any. These are individuals the firm supports for election or re-election. If you have questions about these individuals, or any other judicial candidates, please contact a KZA attorney.
