Dennis Prince, well known as one of the hardest hitting trial lawyers in the State of Nevada, recently announced the opening of Prince Law Group, a Las Vegas based boutique litigation law firm dedicated to the aggressive representation of clients suffering from devastating injuries caused by the negligence of another.
Prince isn’t just another personal injury lawyer though and he sure as hell didn’t pay us to let him answer these questions. Dennis Prince is the type of attorney other attorneys go to when they want to increase the chances of a win for their clients in court. With over 100 trials taken to jury verdict, and over $100 million in verdicts and settlements won on behalf of his clients, it’s safe to say this guy is a legal legend in Nevada. Did we mention he was named as one of the nation’s Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers Association, and Trial Lawyer of the Year in 2016 by the Nevada Justice Association?
