Mr. Harter was a solo attorney practicing primarily in Family Law (over 9,000 Family Court cases, including court-appointed in NRS 432B abuse/neglect cases), as well as the areas of personal injury and criminal law (including court-appointed counsel for indigent juveniles and adults). The practice included appearing in federal, state (including appellate cases), county, almost every city/township’s court in Clark County and various administrative hearings (e.g., Worker’s Compensation). A proud native Nevadan, he was born in Reno, and resided in Las Vegas since pre-kindergarten. He only left Clark County for higher education purposes.
