Jordan P. Schnitzer - Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney

Jordan Schnitzer is a certified Personal Injury Specialist by the State Bar of Nevada.  Jordan was born and raised in Las Vegas. He graduated, cum laude, from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University with a degree in economics and a minor in communications. He obtained his law degree from the UCLA School of Law, which is consistently ranked as one of the top 20 law schools in the country. He is licensed to practice law in both Nevada and California.

Jordan Schnitzer spent several years working as a lawyer for some of the largest insurance companies and corporations in the country. During that time, Jordan learned all of the tricks and tactics insurance companies use to try to avoid fairly compensating injured people. But Jordan realized he loved helping injured people get the money they deserved instead of helping the greedy insurance companies keep as much as they can.

Jordan’s skill, dedication and passion for helping injured people has made him a go to personal injury attorney by his peers, legal organizations and publications. He has successfully handled cases all the way from pre-litigation settlement, through arbitration, mediation, trial and even the Supreme Court of Nevada.

Jordan has been recognized locally as one of Nevada’s Legal Elite by Nevada Business magazine, a Top Lawyer in Las Vegas by Desert Companion magazine and a Top 100 Lawyer in Las Vegas by MYVEGAS Magazine.

Nationally, Jordan’s qualifications and trial results earned him selection in the exclusive organization The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 under 40, which is composed of the top trial lawyers who are younger than the age of 40.

Jordan has also been named to the Super Lawyers Rising Stars list. Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high-degree of recognition and professional achievement. The Rising Stars list is reserved for the top 2.5 percent of lawyers who are 40 years old or younger, or have only been in practice for 10 years or less, yet have reached a high level of skill and success.

Jordan has the highest possible Avvo rating: 10.0 Superb. Avvo is one of the most popular online legal services websites. Avvo uses a complex algorithm to assign each lawyer a rating from 1–10 based upon publicly available information, awards and peer reviews.
