The Law Offices of Michael I. Gowdey, Ltd. is a full-service boutique law firm specializing in Criminal Defense, Personal Injury and Divorce and Family Law. We have been fighting for our clients since our inception in 1992. Michael I. Gowdey, our firm's Founder and Chief Trial Attorney, has been recognized with many awards during his career, including Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America, Top 100 Men of Success, Top 25 DUI Attorneys in Nevada, Trial Lawyer of the Year, just to name a few. The attorneys and staff of our firm pride ourselves on our dedicated service to our clients, and our take-no-prisoners attitude in representing them.

Mr. Gowdey has been involved in some of the most high-profile cases in Southern Nevada over the past 20 years, including the Flamingo Rapist case (State v. Dushon Green), State v. Amrin Ansley, State v. Ewing, and a host of other well known cases. Mr. Gowdey has an admirable record of success, and is considered one of the top lawyers in Nevada.

Mr. Gowdey's great love is being in the courtroom. Whether it is litigating criminal cases, car accident or serious injury cases, or divorce and custody cases, Mr. Gowdey goes hard and fights to win. We have recovered millions of dollars in damages for our clients who were victims in auto and truck accidents. Without the credible threat of trying cases such as these, the insurance companies don't respond with fair offers. While there are many lawyers who handle car accident cases, they never get near a court room, and therefore, are unable to extract maximum value from insurance companies for their clients. These attorneys simply run "settlement mills", where they accept whatever offers are made and move on to the next client. Mr. Gowdey is selective about the cases he accepts, and therefore feels an obligation to give those clients the highest quality legal representation.

Our firm is very experienced in handling divorce, custody and family law cases, from the straightforward simple divorce to the most complex cases involving extensive assets and custody issues. Mr. Gowdey understands how critically important and devastating a divorce can be, and he fights to ensure that his clients are never taken advantage of in those proceedings. Mr. Gowdey knows that a divorce or custody issue is one of the most stressful events a client can have, and he treats it with the urgency and respect that it deserves. Expect to be treated with empathy, dignity and respect when you are a client of the Law Offices of Michael I. Gowdey, Ltd.

Whether you have been arrest and charged with a crime, involved in a serious accident, or are going through a divorce or custody battle, you need the very best representation you can obtain. After all, it's YOUR life at stake. Call the Law Offices of Michael I. Gowdey, Ltd., for a free consultation today. You will be glad you did.
