Originally from Seattle, Washington, Wesley graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelors of Arts in English with an emphasis on Creative Writing in 2004. After college, Wesley worked in the scientific equipment field for over ten years as a Customer Service and Sales Supervisor. Wesley was inspired to take the leap and relocate to Las Vegas for Law School by his sister, who encouraged him to take the LSAT and work towards a fulfilling career as an attorney. In 2015, Wesley was accepted to the William S. Boyd School of Law at UNLV and after visiting the campus, instinctively knew that Las Vegas was going to become his new home.
Throughout law school, Wesley worked as a law clerk for Nettles Morris Law Firm. It was here that he developed a passion for personal injury work. He worked with very talented attorneys that taught him the right way to interact and represent clients. Wesley was heavily involved in activities at William S. Boyd School of Law. He was an Articles Editor for the Nevada Law Journal, president of the public speaking club Legally Speaking for two years, was a Teaching Assistant for Professor Pollman’s Legal Writing Class, and Research Assistant to Professor Jean Sternlight. Wesley also earned the Alternative Dispute Resolution Concentration, which required him, among other things, to write a research paper and present it to classmates and professors. Wesley’s research paper focused on how attorneys can utilize different psychological techniques when dealing with different parties. In order to illustrate these different techniques, Wesley analyzed the film Primal Fear and broke down the different psychological techniques used by the attorneys and clients in that film.
After earning his Juris Doctorate from William S. Boyd School of Law in 2018, Wesley became a Judicial Law Clerk for the Honorable Judge Stefany Miley (ret). The next year, Wesley had the honor of being offered another judicial clerkship working with the Honorable Judge Mary Kay Holthus. The experience of being a judicial law clerk showed Wesley all sides of the issues in both criminal and civil matters. Once the judicial clerkships concluded, Wesley joined the team at The 702 Firm Injury Attorneys. Wesley has been a member of the Nevada State Bar since 2018.
In his free time, Wesley enjoys music, cooking for friends and family, movies, and working on a novel that he hopes to finish within the next year or two.
