About Us

Welcome to the Nevada Attorneys for Criminal Justice.  We are a non-profit organization of criminal defense attorneys located throughout Nevada.  Our mission is to ensure effective representation of our clients through shared resources, legislative lobbying on constitutional issues, and intra-organizational support.

In contrast to civil practice and institutional defenders offices, criminal defense practitioners are on the whole solitary animals.  NACJ seeks to change that by presenting Nevada’s practitioners with access to a community of like-minded individuals to provide support and assistance in times of need.

Membership in NACJ carries with it a host of benefits, including access to our active mailing list where members discuss today’s hot-button issues in criminal defense, a brief bank of trial- and appellate-level forms, and our quarterly newsletter Unreasonable Doubt.

If you are interested in joining, please contact us!  We invite all practitioners to attend our monthly meetings, held the first Wednesday of every month, teleconferenced between the offices of the Federal Public Defender in Reno and Las Vegas.
