Telia Law is a litigation boutique law firm dedicated to complex civil litigation in Las Vegas, Nevada. Though we only started in 2013, we have already achieved a strong record of victories. We are extremely adept at the “difficult” or “weird” case. If you are not sure if your case fits with our practice areas, or no other attorney you talk to knows what to do with it, give us a call. Our success results from an approach to handling cases that is fundamentally different from that of most firms that handle comparable matters in Las Vegas. We do not take the conventional think-inside-of-the-box or template approach. We do not practice law as though it were “paint by numbers.” We devise how to handle a case with focused creativity and intelligent risk-taking.
