Firm: Oronoz & Ericsson Las Vegas Lawyers
Oronoz & Ericsson was founded with a single purpose in mind – to provide the absolute best in criminal defense and personal injury representation to our Las Vegas clients. Partners Jim Oronoz and Tom Ericsson, with combined decades of experience as trial lawyers in Clark County, have assembled a team of Las Vegas’ best attorneys to serve both accident victims and people who have been charged with federal or state crimes.
As a founding shareholder of Oronoz & Ericsson, James “Jim” Oronoz has earned a reputation as one of the most dedicated and respected personal injury and criminal defense attorneys in the Las Vegas area. Over a 15-year career, he’s established himself as an expert trial advocate and an aggressive defender of the rights of his clients in both civil and criminal matters.
Mr. Oronoz came to private practice from the Clark County Public Defender’s Office, where he represented criminal defendants in cases ranging from murder to simple drug possession. During those six years as a public defender, his work included hundreds of the most difficult criminal cases in the city. He built his reputation as a superior trial attorney, winning a historically high number of acquittals in what were sometimes considered to be “unwinnable” cases. This experience shaped his view of the law, and he entered the world of private legal work with a firm belief that those who have suffered injustice should be provided with the best possible representation.
A decade later, Mr. Oronoz is a renowned Las Vegas trial veteran. In his continuing criminal work, he’s obtained not guilty verdicts in a number of high-profile cases on a range of diverse charges from murder to mayhem, and has helped hundreds of others achieve dismissals or reduced sentences in the face of serious criminal charges. As a personal injury attorney, he has obtained significant awards for a number of injury victims who might otherwise have had to bear the cost of those injuries alone.
As an AV-rated attorney, Mr. Oronoz has been singled out by his peers and local trial court judges for having the highest level of legal ability and professional standards.
Mr. Oronoz is proud to provide the gold standard in Las Vegas criminal defense. He encourages anyone who is facing criminal charges or who has suffered injury because of someone else’s negligence to contact his office as soon as possible to discuss the next steps.
