The Expert Network© celebrates its newest member, Attorney Sean P. Connell
Las Vegas, NV, September 19, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Sean P. Connell, Partner, Muehlbauer Law Offices, LTD., has joined The Expert Network©, an invitation-only service for distinguished professionals. Mr. Connell has been chosen as a Distinguished Lawyer™ based on peer reviews and ratings, dozens of recognitions, and accomplishments achieved throughout his career.
Mr. Connell outshines others in his field due to his extensive educational background, numerous awards and recognitions, and career longevity. He received his Juris Doctor with Distinction from the University of Iowa Law School in 2000 and his Bachelor of Arts from Marquette University in 1997. He was named one of Nevada's Legal Elite in 2015 and 2016 by Nevada Business Magazine and one of the Top 100 Litigators of 2016 by the American Society of Legal Advocates.
With 16 years dedicated to law, Mr. Connell brings a wealth of knowledge to his industry, and in particular to his areas of specialization, complex civil litigation and criminal defense. When asked why he decided to pursue a career in law, Mr. Connell said:
"Prior to starting college, I knew I would pursue a legal career. My personality and temperament made law school a natural fit. I knew that I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to put my talents to use ensure that everyone had equal access to justice. The legal process can be quite intimidating for someone that is not familiar with it so having a knowledgeable advocate that can explain the process and obtain the desired results can be of great comfort."
As a leader in his field, Mr. Connell is highly active in the Las Vegas community on civic issues. He is a popular speaker on legal topics ranging from the intricacies of the judicial election process and appointment of judges, to constitutional issues related to federal ownership of state land. Additionally, Mr. Connell is dedicated to providing pro-bono representation and counsel for disabled veterans as well as volunteering for the non-profit USA Cares where he serves as the Vice Chairman of the organization’s Nevada Chapter Board of Directors.
With this prominence in his field, Mr. Connell finds himself in a unique position to keep his finger on the pulse of prevailing legal trends in the state. Though his broad practice touches on many kinds of complex civil litigation matters, he notes that he has seen a rise in cases within one area of civil litigation in particular:
"I have been spending a lot of time focusing on changing labor laws. There have recently been a number of changes on the national level regarding employee classifications and exemptions. It’s an up and coming area of litigation that will see a spike in the number of wage and overtime disputes. With the ability of the courts to lock back at two years worth of wages, the changing laws will require employers to reclassify many employees or face significant financial penalties. The ability to counsel employers regarding the new requirements and protect employees that may have been misclassified will require an understanding of these new laws."
