DAMON SCHUETZE

Damon grew up in Las Vegas and has been pursuing his passion for motorcycles since he was five years old. He was admitted to the State Bar of Nevada in 1990 and completed his first trial within three months of being sworn in as a lawyer. He began his career employed by a well-respected insurance defense firm before establishing his own law practice in 2003. While performing extensive jury trial assignments Damon earned an AV Rating on Martindale.com, the most distinguished ranking that lawyers can bestow upon one another. Acquiring thorough knowledge of insurance litigation, Damon chose to cease defense operations in order to apply his trial and motorcycle experience to represent injured motorcycle accident victims. His ability to provide the same elite legal capabilities used by insurance agencies has set Damon apart from all other lawyers, in Southern Nevada, focusing on motorcycle injury which gives his clients the advantage when dealing injury cases.

In addition to Damon’s legal experience, he has a thorough understanding of motorcycles and a passion for riding. When not practicing law he can be found improving his own riding skills at a licensed road racer or providing advanced education for motorcyclists at the an elite riding school. Locally, Damon strives to participate in community activities by educating motorcyclists about advanced riding knowledge to reduce motorcycle accidents and improve riding skill levels.

Damon also assists Nevada Legislators via the Motorcycle Critical Emphasis Area Team by providing recommendations regarding motorcycle specific legislative issues. Damon’s experience with motorcycles provides a substantial advantage for clients as he possesses the motorcyclist mentality and comprehends rider issues. These attributes provide the ability to reconstruct motorcycle accidents and communicate those issues to insurance agencies as well as juries with expert precision.

Damon understands that pursuing a legal claim can be an overwhelming process and, to ensure his clients receive the full attention of their experienced personal injury lawyer, he believes in keeping the channels of communication open at all times to address any of his client’s needs.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Damon at any hour, 24/7, on his personal cell phone at (702) 324-5034.
