District Court Department 3

Ganz v. Trujillo

By: - October 5, 2020 5:00 am

Adam Ganz says he’s a lifelong Las Vegan with a private practice. He’s raised $400,126, mostly from personal injury attorneys, and has $58,764 on hand as of October 15.

Ganz’ website says he’s served as a Justice of the Peace Pro Tem where he heard mostly domestic violence cases. He says he’s “had the pleasure of trying cases in front of just about every Judge in this community” and has spent “thousands of hours in the courtroom over my decades of being a lawyer in our community.” 

Ganz faces Monica Trujillo, one of half a dozen judicial candidates in Clark County who has represented indigent defendants as a Clark County public defender. In 2013 she became a Special Public Defender and is qualified to represent defendants facing the death penalty. She’s raised $77,955 and spent all but $8,048.

Trujillo is from Texas. She attended law school at Washington College in D.C., moved to Las Vegas in 2008, and went to work for the Public Defender.
