Admitted to practice in Nevada since 1981, Mr. Jones is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit and the Supreme Court of the United States. He has received a great deal of recognition from his colleagues for his successful track record, including an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell. In addition, Mr. Jones was named Trial Lawyer of the Year for 1998 by what was then known as the Nevada Justice Association, and he has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America.
