Las Vegas Attorney Robert Beckett joins the Las Vegas Tribune family
as a columnist and as a talk show host on radiotribune.com, hosting
his own one-hour show.
Beckett, a four-term Nye County District Attorney now in private
practice, is in partnership with local attorney Vicky Greco at Greco
Law Group, where both represent those encountering complications with
the legal system.
Robert Beckett plans to bring fellow attorneys and elected officials,
as well as some of the law firm’s high profile clientele, to his show.
Beckett was elected District Attorney in Nye County in 1995 after
being encouraged by a friend to run for that position. The Nye County
District Attorney’s office represents the Nye County Commissioners and
other county agencies in their governmental administration and
“Additionally, our office prosecuted all felony and misdemeanor crimes
occurring within the County,” Becket told the Las Vegas Tribune. The
office was also responsible for the child support division.
“I hired and trained all attorneys for the positions. Additionally, I
created separate divisions for Criminal, Civil, Child Support and
Investigations within the Nye County District Attorney’s office. Due
to staffing shortages and budget issues, attorneys often had to do
their own legal research, which was also part of the training I did,”
stated Beckett during a last Friday meeting with the editorial board
of the newspaper.
Before being elected to public office, Robert Beckett owned his own
small but successful private practice in Las Vegas — from 1988 to 1994
— and he remembers that during that time he used to do his own legal
research while representing clients in criminal, business, personal
injury and estate legal matters, including wills and trusts.
Currently, due to the economic factors in Nevada, he is also handling
loan modifications, foreclosures and homeowners associations
(overcharging/raising fees), and has expanded his practice to include
bankruptcy, fair debt collection practice acts violations and debt
Now, of course, he has added the extra jobs of being a newspaper
columnist and a radio talk show host at the Las Vegas Tribune and
radiotibune.com Internet station owned by this newspaper.
“This new area of my practice has created a place where I can assist
people during times in which they assume they have no way out and have
thought that bankruptcy was their only solution,” explained Beckett.
The new show, scheduled to start on Monday, July 15, is tentatively
set for 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, according to an agreement
between Beckett and the Las Vegas Tribune; but due to Beckett’s busy
calendar, it may change before the July 15 starting date that’s been
The show, which as of press time does not have an official name, is
produced by Rolando Larraz, who produces and hosts Face The Tribune at
noon daily on the same station.
