Supreme Court reprimands Las Vegas attorney Glen Lerner


CARSON CITY -- Las Vegas lawyer Glen Lerner, who bills himself as the “heavy hitter” on TV commercials, has lost a Nevada Supreme Court ruling.

Justices issued a public reprimand against Lerner for using an Arizona lawyer who was not licensed to practice in Nevada to represent his clients in two personal injury cases in 2005.

In the decision, issued late on Christmas Eve, the Supreme Court also announced Lerner, who because of his colorful commercials is one of the best known lawyers in Nevada, previously was issued three private reprimands for “identical conduct.”

One of those reprimands also involved Kevin Rowe, the Arizona lawyer he assigned to handle the two 2005 cases.
