Meet Our New Attorney: William B. Gonzalez

De Castroverde Law Group has earned a reputation in the Las Vegas area for providing clients with the highest possible level of legal counsel and representation. We have achieved this goal by building a team of knowledgeable, skilled, and outstanding attorneys, and we are pleased to introduce our newest addition: Attorney William B. Gonzalez.

Attorney Gonzalez has practiced law in Nevada for nearly two decades, and was a successful attorney for a number of years before he was appointed to the Family Court Bench in 2009. Prior to receiving his Juris Doctor from J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University, he graduated from Redlands University with a degree in business management and later earned an MBA from the Monterey Institute of International Studies. 

After being admitted to the Nevada State Bar in 1997, Attorney Gonzalez worked as an associate attorney with another local firm for two years, and then served as a deputy public defender with the Clark County Public Defender’s Office for nearly ten years. In 2009, the Nevada Judicial Selection Commission assessed Attorney Gonzalez’s experience and determined that he was one of the most qualified finalists to become a judge. Governor Jim Gibbons appointed Attorney Gonzalez to the Family Court Bench in March of 2009, and he was one of only two family court judges that were Spanish-speaking Latinos.

During the five years that Attorney Gonzalez served as Family Court Judge Department F in the Eighth Judicial District Court, he had the opportunity to represent over 2,000 at-risk children from the community.  His tireless work ethic and dedication during his appointment as a family court judge continue to have a positive impact on local families.

In light of his extensive experience handling family domestic relations cases, Attorney Gonzalez is well-equipped to lead De Castroverde Law Group’s expanding Family Law Department. “We are proud to have such an experienced attorney and community leader join our firm,” Attorney Alex De Castroverde said of Attorney William Gonzalez. “I have known Bill for about 15 years and have come to respect and admire his work as an attorney and as a former Family Court judge.”

Attorney Gonzalez is deeply committed to helping children and families throughout Southern Nevada, and this dedication extends beyond the courtroom. He served as the Vice-Chair of the City of Las Vegas Housing Authority for four years, and has been an active member of the Advisory Board for the Boyd School of Law Clinical Program for the past five years. Attorney Gonzalez also volunteers as a judge for local high school mock trial programs, and for the past 14 years he has served as a Boy Scout leader for the local Las Vegas Unit 269.  

Attorney Gonzalez and his wife, Ana Maria, have been married for 27 years. They have four children and have called Southern Nevada their home since 1997. “I’m really happy to join De Castroverde Law Group,” Attorney Gonzalez said. “I know I’m joining a group of attorneys who are well-established and well-respected throughout the community.”

Fluent in both English and Spanish, Attorney Gonzalez is dedicated to using his unique legal to obtain the best possible results for his clients’ family court cases.
