Practice State



Ed leads a team of five skilled Board Certified Family Law Specialists (the only such firm in Nevada) who are not only highly experienced, but devoted to carefully crafting personalized solutions for each client’s special circumstances. We understand the emotional trenches our clients often face when dealing with life-changing situations and are committed to helping our clients start the next chapter of their life in the best possible position. * By every objective measure, Kainen Law Group has the largest group of most credentialed family lawyers in the State of Nevada - including four Fellows of the AAML (the only such firm in Nevada). We welcome any call and will thoughtfully assess if we are the right firm for your needs. * We started this law firm with the vision that we would be different from other family lawyers in Nevada. We are very selective in the number and type of cases we accept, taking pride in offering tailored and lasting solutions designed to address our clients’ individual concerns associated with more complex family law matters. Indeed, a significant segment of our practice relates entirely to representing other lawyers in family law disputes.
