Lee Roberts Elected to Nevada Law Foundation
Weinberg Wheeler Hudgins Gunn & Dial partner, D. Lee Roberts, Jr., has been elected a Colleague of the Nevada Law Foundation. Colleagueship in the Foundation is a professional honor extended only to the leading lawyers and judges of Nevada who have demonstrated outstanding legal ability and who are recognized for their devotion to both their profession and the community. Out of over 10,000 current and former members of the State Bar of Nevada, Mr. Roberts is now one of only 121 lawyers and judges who have been recognized as a Lifetime Colleague since the program was founded in 1994.
The primary goal of the Nevada Law Foundation is to develop and maintain programs that provide legal-related services to the poor, to victims of domestic violence, and to children in need of protection by the juvenile court. Clark County Legal Services and other organizations supported by the foundation provide quality legal services in civil legal matters for low-income individuals and groups. The Committee to Aid Abused Women uses grant monies from the foundation to ensure that the survivors of domestic violence have access to the life-saving legal services of temporary protection and related orders. Another of the foundation's grantees, S.A.F.E. House, runs a multi-faceted program that provides system and legal advocacy while assisting domestic violence victims in their attempts to create safe and abuse-free lives for themselves and their children. Every day, these organizations make a positive difference in the lives of countless Nevadans, and Mr. Roberts is proud to support the foundation in its worthwhile efforts.
Mr. Roberts practices in WWHGD’s Las Vegas office, and has over 22 years of trial experience. He concentrates his practice in construction, catastrophic tort and contract litigation. Mr. Roberts’ legal expertise has also been recognized through Super Lawyers and Chambers USA’s annual listing of “America’s Leading Business Lawyers.” He is a frequent speaker at various educational and legal seminars.
