Las Vegas Asset Protection And Wealth Expansion Attorney

My legal career began in 1990, where I spent three years with a prominent Las Vegas law firm before deciding that I could better serve my clients by forming my own law practice. With a Master of Laws in Taxation and CPA designation (certified in Illinois only), I have served my diverse and high-profile clientele with professionalism, drive, and mutual respect.

At the Law Offices of David A. Straus, we concentrate our legal practice in trusts, estates, corporate and business planning-with an interest in asset protection-charitable planning, and entertainment and media law.

Progressive, Cutting-Edge Estate Planning in Nevada

I am not the average Las Vegas asset protection and estate planning lawyer. I inspire, motivate, and teach my clients to transfer core values and principles for living, as well as material wealth, through estate planning.

We are committed to seizing ongoing responsibilities and opportunities to enhance the reputation of attorneys and the legal profession in all that we do, and have built our practice to provide job security in a team-based partnership mode of shared responsibility and mutual caring.

We promote self-growth and continued learning to keep ourselves on the cutting edge of our field and to achieve greater fulfillment in our lives. We also use our work as a means to promote good in society and to give back to our community.
