Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has appointed a longtime civil lawyer to a vacant District Court seat in Las Vegas.
“Trevor has practiced law with distinction in Nevada for over 30 years,” Sisolak said in a statement this week. “I am extremely impressed with Trevor’s extensive trial court experience, having litigated over 30 civil jury trials as lead counsel, and his meaningful philanthropic contributions to the Las Vegas community. I have full confidence that Trevor will make an outstanding judge.”
Atkin received his law degree from the McGeorge School of Law at the University of the Pacific and has been licensed to practice law in Nevada since 1987.
Each judicial seat is up for election in 2020. The job pays roughly $160,000 annually.
