ALEXANDRA VARELA, ESQ.
Alex is an attorney licensed to practice law in Nevada and California. More importantly, Alex is a wife and a mom to two great kids. She knows the immense, unquantifiable love that parents feel for their children. As such, Alex started her firm in hopes of helping parents ensure their children are completely cared for if anything happens to them.
Alex graduated cum laude from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, William S. Boyd School of Law. After law school, Alex served as the judicial law clerk for the Honorable Judge Kathleen Delaney. Alex then worked as an attorney in the juvenile division of the Clark County District Attorney's Office. Alex represented the Department of Family Services and Child Protective Services in foster care proceedings. This experience helped Alex see firsthand the consequences of not naming guardians for children.
During law school, Alex was awarded a merit-based scholarship after her first semester and the Eglet Wall Law Scholarship for Outstanding Academic Achievement during her second year. Alex was also awarded a CALI Excellence award for the highest grade in her legal writing class and a best brief award during the Wagner National moot court competition.
