As one of the most experienced trial attorneys in Clark County, former Clark County Chief Deputy District Attorney Craig Hendricks brings a wealth of knowledge to the De Castroverde Law Group, stemming from his 25 years handling criminal cases, including more than 60 felony jury trials and hundreds of misdemeanor trials.
Craig has been practicing law in Nevada since 1991. He began as a law clerk in the Clark County District Attorney’s office, appellate division, and was promoted to the deputy district attorney in 1993 and then to the chief deputy district attorney in 1998. His experience includes supervising attorneys on the general litigation team and supervising and specializing in special victims cases such as rape, child abuse, and molestation.
Upon joining De Castroverde Law Group in late 2016 in its expanding Criminal Law Department, Hendricks now takes on Las Vegas criminal cases and represents clients accused of such crimes, assuring them the best representation possible.
