Veteran county deputy prosecutor appointed to District Court judgeship

A Clark County deputy district attorney has been appointed to a judicial position in Nevada, according to the governor’s office.

Tina Talim, who serves as the team chief of the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Unit in the Clark County district attorney’s office, immigrated to the United States from India as a young child.

Gov. Joe Lombardo’s office made the announcement on Friday.

“Tina has nearly two decades of experience working in the Clark County district attorney’s office and her expertise will be a valuable asset to the Eighth Judicial District Court,” Lombardo stated in a news release. “I’m confident that Tina will execute her duties as judge faithfully and serve her fellow Nevadans with integrity.”

Talim has prosecuted numerous felony drug trafficking cases, while simultaneously serving as the district attorney’s director of diversity and community outreach.

“I am grateful to Governor Lombardo for this appointment and deeply honored to serve as a judge in the Eighth Judicial District Court,” Talim said in the release. “This appointment is not only a personal milestone, but it serves as a testament to the broadening representation within our judicial system. I look forward to serving our community from the bench.”

Talim earned her bachelor’s degree from University of California, Los Angeles and her law degree from the Pepperdine Caruso School of Law.

She will begin her term June 20.
