Case Synopsis

In January 2018, the amended Nevada Supreme Court Rule 116 governing the reinstatement of suspended attorneys became effective. The amended rule states that an attorney can be reinstated if they can show by clear and convincing evidence “compliance with the terms and conditions of all prior disciplinary orders.” Irrespective of when a suspension was imposed, the amended rule applies to petitions for reinstatement filed after the amendment’s effective date.
