NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - The City of North Las Vegas is pleased to announce that two attorneys in the North Las Vegas City Attorney’s Office were named top lawyers in Nevada.

City Attorney Micaela Moore and Assistant City Attorney Claudia Aguayo were voted among the top 20 government attorneys in the state by Nevada Business Magazine. 

"It's an honor to be recognized by our peers in the legal community," Moore said. "We have an outstanding legal team that works hard to protect the City and the taxpayers. We prosecute crimes, prevent and defend lawsuits, prepare legal documents in connection with City business, and help shape City policy at every level. It's extremely rewarding work, made even more gratifying by being recognized as the best of the best."

Now in its 11th year, Nevada Business Magazine's Legal Elite highlights Nevada’s top attorneys as chosen by their peers. Polling for the 2018 list began in February, and nearly 6,000 nominations were collected.

Moore has been featured in Legal Elite eight times, and Aguayo has been featured twice.
