OVERVIEW

About Marshal Willick
WILLICK LAW GROUP is a Family Law firm in Las Vegas, NV. Founded in 1985, the firm has dedicated itself exclusively to the field of Family Law for nearly three decades, and is located across the street from the Family Court building, at Pecos and Bonanza. The firm practices at the trial court level in State and Federal Courts, and in appeals to the Nevada Supreme Court and the Federal Appellate Courts.

The Willick Law Group has well earned a reputation for meticulous and comprehensive legal writing, as well as diligent and zealous advocacy in both trial and appellate courts, and is committed to remaining the premier Family Law firm in Nevada.

Family Law, or Domestic Relations Law, includes the law of divorce, annulments, child custody, visitation, and child support, property and debt division, and alimony (spousal support), as well as paternity, guardianship, adoption, and grandparent visitation rights cases, and negotiating and drafting premarital and postnuptial agreements. Our work frequently involves pension or retirement division (including the drafting of QDROs under ERISA, and military retirement, Civil Service retirement, and State of Nevada PERS issues). Many of our cases involve interstate or international claims, including many contested jurisdiction matters, establishing or enforcing custody or support orders under the UCCJEA and UIFSA, and a number of child kidnaping cases under the Hague Convention for the recovery of internationally abducted children. As necessary, we also litigate matters related to core family law disputes, including some domestic torts, spyware and invasion of privacy claims, and collection of judgment arrears, penalties, and statutory interest.

The WILLICK LAW GROUP has an active practice in all aspects of Family Law, and has the highest (“A V”) rating in the Martindale-Hubbell Legal Directory, which has recognized the firm’s professional and ethical standing by listing us in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.
