Mark Albright was selected in 2014 as one of the “10 Best” Personal Injury Attorneys for the State of Nevada by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys (AIOPIA). The AIOPIA is an impartial third-party Attorney rating service recognizing excellence of fellow practitioners in the field of Personal Injury law.

We have handled countless major accident cases, both for plaintiffs and defendant, including multi-car head-on collision on U.S. 95, double fatality; car drove off highway at Lake Mead National Park, resulting in deaths of both occupants; construction accidents; glass fixture falling on head of restaurant customer at Four Seasons; victim crushed between two semi-tractor trailers at truck stop, resulting in two crushed femurs and insertion of titanium rods; single car roll-over in Arizona injuring occupants, with multiple injuries to occupants; rear-end collision on Blue Diamond Road at intersection, causing multiple neck and back injuries; child injured on school play-ground tug-of-war when rope wrapped around student’s wrist; class action regarding workers injured at construction project at Yucca Mtn.; pedestrian trip and fall over parking lot broken tire bumper; ready mix truck collision with fork lift, resulting in fall and broken leg, and countless other matters.
Our firm is not a paralegal mill where you never meet the attorneys. In fact, our litigation teams look forward to meeting with our clients face to face to discuss your case. In high stakes litigation, multiple attorneys will be involved in handling various aspects of your case. In a recent serious accident case, four of our experienced attorneys drove to the accident scene for an inspection and analysis. We have handled countless vehicle accidents, premises liability matters, and pedestrian-auto cases. We also handle medical malpractice and legal malpractice matters.
Opposing parties know that we are prepared to take your case to trial if necessary. The firm successfully defended a general contractor in a bench trial, which lasted intermittently for well over a year, arising out of the construction of a major Strip hotel. At the time, it was the longest bench trial in Clark County history. The firm recently won a jury verdict in excess of $1 million in a case involving complex negligence and malpractice issues.
The firm has also represented numerous claimants in various hotel construction trials, and recently successfully defended the lender against dozens of lien claimants relating to the construction of the Aladdin hotel/mall project in Las Vegas. The firm played a key role in the three-week federal jury trial against Equinox International, which resulted in the recovery of some $40 million for victims of an illegal pyramid scheme. Other trials include the Resort at Summerlin, MGM and Sunrise Suites Hotel. The firm also represented one of the main defendants (mechanical engineer) in the famous Hilton Hotel fire cases (where 8 died and over 200 were injured). The firm also recently defended Bridgestone Japan from a major product liability claim.
Mr. Bud Stoddard joined the firm 2006 after leaving the Los Angeles office of a major, international law firm where he practiced in one of the most highly regarded products liability defense practice groups in the nation (Bud graduated number 1 in his class from the UNLV law school). Since joining ASWA, Bud also represents a select group of personal injury clients, using his experience as a former insurance defense trial attorney. Of course, Bud also continues to assist in insurance defense matters, using his background as a former insurance defense trial attorney and Federal law clerk.
