Practice Experience

Owen Mooney practices as an associate in the firm's Insurance Law Group. He previously clerked for The Honorable Nancy Saitta of the Nevada Supreme Court. Owen's analysis of complex legal issues included civil and criminal procedure, constitutional rights, parentage, premises liability, workers' compensation, and class action litigation. For example, Owen contributed his research, analysis, and writing in a matter in which the Nevada Supreme Court reconciled Nevada's rules of civil procedure with the statutory prerequisites for a suit against a design professional in a construction-defect matter. See In re CityCenter Constr. & Lien Master Litig., 310 P.3d 574 (Nev. 2013). He was also involved in a matter in which the court clarified when a party may recover attorney fees as special damages. See Liu v. Christopher Homes, LLC, 321 P.3d 875 (Nev. 2014).

Outside the Firm
