Attorney David Phillips of Las Vegas; serial offender


The state of Nevada presented David Phillips with a law license in 1983 after he graduated from Howard University Law School.


In the month of July 2015, the Nevada Supreme Court has referred the conduct of Dave to the State Bar of Nevada for investigation of possible misconduct, some of which is as follows:

  • Failed to comply with Supreme Court rules
  • Needlessly delayed the processing client’s appeal
  • Due to misconduct, removed as appellate counsel by Supreme Court
  • Failed to file case appeal statement and transcript request form in representing client on appeal matter
  • Opening appeal brief and appendix were overdue
  • Sanctioned $250 by Supreme Court for failure to comply with filing rules
  • Failed to pay $250 court imposed sanction
  • Failed to respond to Supreme Court order
  • Failed to communicate with Supreme Court as directed
  • Engaged in the illegal practice of law while license suspended

In a prior matter in early July 2015, the Supreme Court issued a similar order referring Dave’s conduct to the State Bar and in the process dismissed his client’s appeal.


The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the State Bar was in the process of investigating seven (7) grievances filed against Dave, which include one filed by Clark County District Court Judge Elissa Cadfish.


All that remains now is to see what punishment the State Bar recommends be meted out to Dave by the Nevada Supreme Court.


As we speak (ca. August 2015), Dave practices at 700 South Fourth Street in Las Vegas, Nevada.
