Christopher Tilman | The Lawyer For Your Family's Life Challenges.

Attorney Christopher R. Tilman

“I am proud to be a fifth-generation Nevadan and Boulder City High graduate.  After high school I attended college in California, graduating from UC Santa Barbara in 1990 with Degrees in History and Anthropology.  I continued my education and graduated with a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Golden Gate University in San Francisco in 1993.  With my Doctor of Jurisprudence in hand, I came “home” to Nevada and have been in private practice in the Las Vegas Valley, since passing the Nevada State Bar in 1993.  I practice primarily in Divorce, Family Law, Criminal Defense, Juvenile Abuse/Neglect and Personal Injury.  I am passionate about protecting the rights of those who live and visit Nevada.  I have received awards from Clark County Pro Bono Project, Clark County Legal Services Program, United States Senate, U.S. House of Representatives and the Office of the Governor with regards to my legal services." In May 2010, I taught a CLE Seminar for the Clark County Bar Association titled Juvenile Law, Overview and Updates.

Real People Representing Real Clients

Our office works hard to resolve the challenging problems in the areas of Family Law and Criminal Defense.  We work for a timely and cost-effective resolution of your legal issues so you can move on with your life.  Even though each of our legal assistants has a specialty within the office, we take a team effort on each and every case.  Our staff is well versed on each case and as they say in Vegas what you say here stays here!  We want you to feel comfortable with us.  We are not your average law firm where everyone is in black suits with pretentious attitudes.  We are real people representing real clients.  If you come in we may be in jeans, but that does not mean we will not handle your case in a professional manner. We work hard and play hard! 

Friendly Staff Ready To Help You

Our telephones are answered by one of our three friendly staff members.  That’s not just some slogan, but a way of doing business that makes our office different.  When you call, we will have a few questions for you, which will help us figure out your situation, and then we will be ready to answer your questions and help you out.
