LAS VEGAS LAWYER
Nancy Bernstein first realized the importance of a good lawyer following a family tragedy. Her brother was killed in an accident, and when her parents took the responsible party to trial, the family faced discrimination. With the help of dedicated, caring lawyers, Nancy’s parents won their case, and Nancy was inspired to study law and help others going through similar situations.
Nancy was born in North Las Vegas, and graduated from Western High School. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies with a minor in English from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where she was named to the Dean’s List.
After graduating from UNLV, Nancy founded a marketing company called Explosive Media, and wrote, directed and produced award-winning television commercials in both English and Spanish.
Nancy earned her Juris Doctor from the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2004. She practices personal injury and criminal law, and is a native Spanish-speaker of Cuban descent. She joined De Castroverde Law Group in August 2012.
Nancy is active in the Southern Nevada community, as a long-time member of the Latin Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Latin Bar Association. She helped develop “Street Law,” an educational program for high school students that teaches the fundamentals of law as they relate to students everyday lives. Nancy is currently a mock trial coach for Green Valley High School.
In 2010, Nancy was honored by the Nevada Justice Association as a “Pillar of Justice” after winning a multi-million dollar verdict. She is also a court-appointed attorney for the Moderate Offender’s Program in Clark County Justice Court.
