Joseph Gutierrez is a partner of the law firm Maier Gutierrez Ayon, focusing his legal practice on all phases of litigation, from obtaining fast and favorable pre-litigation results to handling cases through trial and appeal. Mr. Gutierrez has extensive experience in negotiation, settlement, litigation, and trial in both personal injury and complex commercial litigation cases. He is also experienced in handling pre-litigation investigations for businesses in an effort to avoid costly litigation.
Mr. Gutierrez earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in business management from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), and his law degree from Pepperdine University’s School of Law. While in law school, Mr. Gutierrez worked for United States Circuit Judge Arthur L. Alarcon (Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals), and gained significant experience in handling appeals, often arising from mistakes that could have been avoided at trial.
In Las Vegas, Mr. Gutierrez began his career at a small litigation firm where he developed his interest in the medical aspects of personal injury lawsuits through his work on medical malpractice and pharmaceutical cases. Mr. Gutierrez then joined Beckley Singleton, which was Nevada’s oldest incorporated law firm, and with Mr. Maier specialized in representing insurance companies and clients in transportation litigation.
As a senior associate in the litigation department of the international law firm Greenberg Traurig, Mr. Gutierrez successfully represented homeowners’ associations, major manufacturers, banks, hotels, production shows and major restaurant chains. Mr. Gutierrez has also represented businesses in Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and Title VII challenges by employees.
After years of working for large law firms, Mr. Gutierrez founded Maier Gutierrez Ayon with the goal of providing clients with the highest level of personal service. At Maier Gutierrez Ayon, every client is treated like family.
As a victim of a serious car accident as a teenager, Mr. Gutierrez experienced firsthand what it was like to have his case brushed aside by “big name” attorneys on television who were looking for nothing more than a quick settlement. At Maier Gutierrez Ayon, clients can rest assured that their cases will be handled by skilled attorneys, not legal assistants, and that no case will be settled out of fear of litigation or taking a case to trial.
As a 20 year resident of Las Vegas, Mr. Gutierrez has a keen understanding of the legal needs of individuals and businesses in Nevada. He was recognized by Nevada Business Magazine as one of the 20 Best Up and Coming Attorneys in Las Vegas. He was also selected as a Rising Star in 2010 and 2011 by Super Lawyers.
