LOOKING OUT FOR YOUR INTERESTS
Charles E. Barnabi Jr. Esq., or “CJ”, is dedicated to looking out for his Clients and giving them the best advice for their unique situation. CJ has been in the legal field since 2002, having worked as a legal assistant, paralegal, law clerk and now as an attorney and counselor. During this time CJ has worked with (and against) many excellent attorneys, learning the law and gaining valuable experience. He has worked on small claims cases to large and complex lawsuits. Each case is important, to you and to him. Though CJ has gained experience in several areas of law, he primarily focuses on general civil litigation, business law, personal injury and bankruptcy.
CJ treats the responsibility of being your attorney and counselor with respect. He realizes that when you are contacting him about a legal issue, that this will likely involve tough situations and difficult decisions. CJ prides himself by diligently keeping in contact with his Clients so they know and understand where their case stands and their available options.
“I realize when a Client contacts me about a legal issue, they are likely in a situation that they did not foresee and is quite unusual for them. It is nerve racking and frustrating. While I can't perfectly understand another's thoughts or emotions, I earnestly try to understand the situation, determine reasonable goals, work hard to achieve those goals, letting you know the progress; all while providing candid knowledgeable advice. I believe that is the reason why almost all of my Clients are referrals from other satisfied Clients I have helped over the years.”
EDUCATION & BACKGROUND
CJ obtained an Associate's Degree in Paralegal Studies in 2002 while graduating at the top of the class. This was followed by earning a Bachelor's Degree in Paralegal Studies. After ten years of being in the legal field, CJ started law school in 2013, and received a Juris Doctorate from the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada Las Vegas in 2016.
