About Christopher Rasmussen

I am a local resident who was educated in the public school system in Las Vegas, Nevada. I was involved in the boy scouts and rode horses at the old Day Dream ranch at Warm Springs and Eastern. I learned to swim at Sunset Park and climbed many local mountains in our valley with the Boy Scouts. My father was a professor at UNLV and my mother worked as a registered nurse at sunrise for 30 years. Las Vegas has provided a vibrant environment for me to thrive as a child.

During my college years at UNLV, I worked as a student worker in the the athletic facilities which included the North gym where coach Tarkanian conducted his daily practices.

As a criminal justice major I participated in a 260 hour internship with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Southwest Area Command. During this internship I spent 260 hours on the streets with patrol officers.

During my law school education at Gonzaga University, I studied in Vienna, Austria with Supreme Court Justice Scalia. My studies in three different universities in Belgium, France, and Austrian law schools allowed me the opportunity to gain an understanding of the international criminal justice system through various founders of the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

After graduation, I started working with John P. Fadgen. John was an outstanding criminal defense lawyer and a gentleman who everyone respected. First and foremost, John was a trial lawyer who had crafted his cross examination skills over the decades. His subtle cross examination style would impeach witness after witness.

I opened my first law office in 2001, in which I also was appointed to the CJA panel where I have tried four of the most lenghty and complex criminal trials in our District. United States v. Acosta (Hells Angels), United States v. Kahre (Four Month Tax Evasion Trial), United States v. Camez (Carder.su Computer Hacking) and United States v. Sellers (Complex Rico Prison Gang Trial). United States v. Bundy et al (Armed Stand-Off with federal agents) Mr Rasmussen represented Peter Santilli a journalist covering the events in real time.

These trials set the tone early in my career on how to properly defend persons charged with serious crimes.

I sit on the Indigent Defense Committee as the State Bar of Nevada representative. We evaluate lawyers to ensure indigent defendants are competently and passionately represented before our courts.As a civil lawyer, I was accepted into the Multi-million Dollar Forum. This is reserved for trial lawyers who have received multiple verdicts and settlements in excess of one million dollars. I have settled and tried multiple million dollar cases. I have continued a long tradition of representing persons injuried by others negligence and intentional acts.

My firm has served as legal counsel since the birth of the Las Vegas Tribune, a local newspaper. I have defended multiple attempts to restrain the content of the Tribune. My partner and I have defended without a single defeat every attempt to restrain or intimidate the Tribune with frivolous litigation. We look forward to consulting with prospective clients who expect the highest level of legal representation.
