Our Firm

Benjamin Durham

Managing Partner

Benjamin was raised in Southern California, the oldest of 8 children. He studied Spanish Translation in college after living in Venezuela and embracing the language and culture of South America. His interest in criminal law was sparked while attending law school at Brigham Young University. He knew long before law school that he wanted to represent individuals rather than work for big business or government, so criminal defense was a natural calling. Benjamin Durham has been practicing law for more than a decade and has extensive courtroom experience in both the federal and state courts. He has represented defendants in all types of criminal cases, including high-level drug trafficking, sexual assault, and murder. In the course of his career, Benjamin has defended several high-profile prosecutions in Las Vegas, including such defendants as the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, Aryan Warriors, and Rolling 60’s Crips.

Sara Pasquale

Associate Attorney

Sara’s journey to becoming a lawyer wasn’t the typical one. She didn’t get a degree in political science to prepare for law school. Instead, Sara completed high school in Iowa after three short years, and then started exploring the country and various career paths. Sara gained invaluable life experience and problem solving skills that have translated well in connecting with clients and providing a unique perspective on the legal issues one might be facing. Sara comes from a personal injury background and brings to the firm her knowledge and experience in that area. She is passionate about uncovering injustices against criminal defendants and making sure that every client has a voice in his or her case.
