  • Profile

Jim Sweetin is more than just an attorney; he's a trusted friend, dedicated advocate, and hard-working champion for those in need. With nearly three decades as a Clark County Deputy District Attorney, Jim boasts an impressive record of over 130 jury trials, where he tirelessly defended victims of crime and their families. Today, he channels this vast experience into advocating for those wronged by general and medical negligence, embodying George Washington's belief that "Truth will ultimately prevail where there are pains taken to bring it to light."

Proud to have grown up in Las Vegas, Jim pursued his business administration and accounting undergraduate degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Remaining in his beloved city, he showcased his diligence by becoming a Certified Public Accountant before attending Gonzaga University School of Law, graduating with distinction in 1993. Upon his return to Las Vegas, Jim's journey in law began, spanning various facets from insurance defense to victims' rights. For over 13 years, he led the Special Victim's Unit as Chief Deputy District Attorney, taking on some of Clark County's most challenging cases. Jim's unwavering dedication is also evident through his co-founding of the Southern Nevada Children's Advocacy Center and the Southern Nevada Sexual Assault Review Team, initiatives that underscore his commitment to safeguarding the vulnerable.

Currently, with Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen, Jim's mission remains unchanged: ensuring justice for the ordinary individual against formidable opposition. His approach? Constructing solid cases, outworking the competition, and placing victims' welfare at the forefront.

Beyond his legal crusades, Jim leads a balanced life, passionately supporting initiatives against sexual violence. He cherishes moments with his family and actively participates in church events. Whether it's marathon running, mountain biking, or off-roading, Jim's diverse interests rejuvenate him, ensuring he approaches every case with unmatched energy and zeal. In Jim Sweetin, you find a blend of expertise, unwavering dedication, and a genuine desire to make a lasting difference.
