Meet Our New Attorney: David Menocal
At De Castroverde Law Group, we pride ourselves on providing the people of Las Vegas with caring and effective legal counsel. We have built a team of lawyers who are dedicated to the rights and interests of every client, and we are proud to introduce the newest addition to our staff: Attorney David Menocal.
David graduated cum laude from Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, where he played football on a full scholarship. While attending Furman, he developed a passion for his Cuban roots and was very involved in serving the local Hispanic community. David participated in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA), where he helped prepare income tax forms for Hispanic families with low to moderate incomes. He also interned at the local Red Cross, coordinating various events for the Hispanic community in Greenville.
David obtained invaluable legal experience while at Furman University by clerking for the Steve Henry Law Office, which specializes in criminal defense. David helped Mr. Henry manage his non-profit corporation “Law in Action”. During his service with the non-profit corporation, David used his fluency in Spanish to educate Hispanic inmates at the Greenville County Detention Center about their constitutional rights, and he also assisted the inmates with their early releases from jail.
After graduating from Furman University, David earned his Juris Doctor from the Georgia State College of Law, and he also studied at the University of Nevada – William S. Boyd School of Law. While earning his law degree he gained further experience by clerking at law firms in Atlanta, GA and Orlando, FL.
David is licensed to practice law by the Nevada Bar and the United States District Court, District of Nevada. He is fluent in Spanish and represents many Spanish-speaking clients in Las Vegas. David is committed to providing outstanding representation to clients in the areas of criminal defense and personal injury litigation, and we are excited to have him join our team at De Castroverde Law Group.
