Attorney Robert Graham abruptly shut down his Las Vegas practice December 2, leaving his employees without jobs and abandoning more than a hundred client files. The state bar was made aware of Mr. Graham’s actions on or about December 2, and took immediate action to protect the public by filing an Emergency Petition for Temporary Suspension which was granted by the Nevada Supreme Court on December 9. The state bar is moving forward with disciplinary action against Mr. Graham who retained an attorney to represent him in the proceeding.
In order to further protect the interests of Graham’s clients, attorneys Jasen E. and Brandi K. Cassady of the Cassady Law Office were appointed by the Eighth Judicial District Court to assume control of the law practice and files of Mr. Graham. They are handling these cases on a pro bono basis and in the process of contacting Graham’s clients.
