Friends and neighbors,

My name is Jeffrey Rugg and I’m running for District Court Judge in Department 30 because I would like to help civil and criminal litigants and their counsel get consistent, comprehensive and complete justice from their trial level court.

Currently, I practice Commercial Litigation at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, LLP and I have broad experience in a variety of areas of law and deep knowledge of the rules of procedure. I have the most diverse and comprehensive experience out of any candidates in this race, having represented clients in all aspects of litigation and dispute resolution, from antitrust to Nevada securities litigation, general contract and real property disputes, business torts and intellectual property. Additionally, my pro bono work has provided me with experience in Family Court and Justice Court.

I will be a judge that allows the parties to make a complete record but also will strive to make the litigation process efficient and understandable to non-lawyers. I also want to help insure that Nevada's courts match Nevada law in their attractiveness to both do business in Nevada and to incorporate in Nevada.

I’d like to hear from you if you have any questions or suggestions related to our courts, and I can be reached directly at 702-357-0322 or by sending an email to

Thank you,

Jeffrey Rugg
