Founding partner

Maggie McLetchie

Maggie has a long history of fighting for justice and is no stranger to standing up to powerful adversaries. Whether she is representing reporters, civil rights plaintiffs, or businesses, she is a passionate and creative advocate to have on your side.  Maggie went into private practice in 2011 and has developed a small firm that produces big firm results.

During law school, Maggie fought for the rights of homeless people, garment workers, and residents of slum housing; she also served as Chair of UCLAW’s Public Interest Law Foundation. 

Maggie began her legal career at Bingham McCutchen LLP, a former multi-national law firm that represented Fortune 500 companies in all aspects of high-profile litigation and arbitration. During her years there, she participated in precedent-setting matters such as arbitration against a large energy company, helping to recover over $70M and extensive injunctive relief for the State of California.

In July of 2007, Maggie moved to Nevada and joined the staff of the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada (ACLU-NV) where she served as Legal Director. During this time, Maggie combined her unmatched work ethic and knowledge of the law to protect the Constitution, fight for inmate's rights and foster the legacy of the ACLU in Nevada. Maggie called upon support from a diverse list of special interest groups in her work at the ACLU-NV; collaborating with groups such as Gun Owners of Nevada and the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada.
