Cotter C. Conway

Attorney at Law

Cotter C. Conway has devoted his entire professional career to defending individuals charged with all types of criminal offenses, including drug-related offenses, battery and domestic battery offenses, gaming offenses, and driving under the influence (DUI) offenses.

After graduation from law school, Mr. Conway moved back to Nevada where he began his legal career working in the private sector with other criminal defense lawyers. He soon joined the Washoe County Public Defender's Office, and later the Washoe County Alternate Public Defender's Office, serving notably as a Deputy Public Defender for more than 14 years.

"Getting charged with a crime or arrested is difficult enough; leave the heavy lifting to me."

In addition, he has represented the interests of the criminal defense bar before the Nevada State Legislature. In these roles Mr. Conway gained a depth of experience dealing with a very broad range of issues, giving him the insights and skills to zealously and effectively represent his clients in the courtroom.
