Local attorney Childs publicly, verbally attacks a member of Las Vegas Tribune

Las Vegas Tribune

Benjamin Childs, AKA Ben Childs

While entering a local store attorney Benjamin Childs, AKA Ben Childs, confronted a member of the Las Vegas Tribune organization verbally assaulting the author of a story about him.
There is a possibility that the member of the Las Vegas Tribune is being stalked by attorney Benjamin Childs due to the coincidence that they have run into each other twice at two different local stores where Childs screamed to the newsman, “M***** F*****” and one of the security guards at one of the stores had to ask what was the problem.
We erroneously defended Attorney Benjamin Childs, AKA Ben Childs, above anything and against everyone’s opinion, believing he was better than people’s opinions of him were.
Benjamin Childs represented a member of this newspaper in a civil case where a hungry businessman was trying to collect a debt that did not exist; the company was represented by a local attorney named Phillip Verrocchio, and the judge ruled in favor of the defendant.
Perhaps because he was “too close to home,” we did not realize that Ben Childs is not what we used to believe about him, and for the record, we have to accept the fact that we were Ben Childs’ campaign manager when he dared to run against Judge Elissa Cadish.
While we thought him to be a very good and dedicated parent, others have seen him as a very controlling father who did/does not let his children out of his sight; and we even felt sorry for him when his daughter, during an interview with a family court arbitrator, yelled at him, “I hate you, I hate you” while we were looking at him as a good father.
His wife left him for a telemarketer (who happened to be a black man, which was another issue for Childs) who claimed, during a telephone conversation with the Las Vegas Tribune, was working on his campaign during his run for judge in the Eighth Judicial District Court of Nevada; the telemarketer contacted the newspaper after reading an article that was published on September 20, 2019 at the suggestion of Gary Hart, the former owner of the defunct Hart Mansion, who claimed
that Childs was his attorney and double-crossed him during his legal problems, making two appointments to come in and talk about his connection to the Childs’ household.
There is the possibility, knowing how money-hungry telemarketers are said to be, that the telemarketer had been remunerated by attorney Benjamin Childs because he did not keep either of the appointments he made with the Las Vegas Tribune.
Ute Construction Company did some work back in 2012 for the trustee holder on a property located in Clark County. Later, a former Ute employee, a Mexican by the name of Edgar, offered his services to the trustee of the property to put in a new floor for a more reasonable price and Ute found out and after firing Edgar, sent a second bill to the property trustee who later died in 2016, fighting for the $2,000 that he paid Edgar.
Later Ute realized that they could have been in the wrong, gave the collection to attorney Phillip Verrocchio, who kept adding dollar after dollar for a debt that did not exist, making it look more like a loan shark transaction than an attorney representing a company with a legitimate debt.
Later, after the trustee of the property died, and the case ended in court, attorney Benjamin Childs offered to go to court for the new trustee because “that attorney” (meaning Plaintiffs’ attorney) “does not know what he is doing” and “you need help,” never mentioning any payment along with his offer.
In fact, the Plaintiffs’ attorney was incompetent when he filed in the wrong court. He filed the case in Justice Court and Judge Conrad Hefner granted the Plaintiff a judgment of $64,000 for a supposed $2,000 debt.
Judge Hefner was outed and a new judge in Justice Court (who apparently knew the law much better) told attorney Verocchio that he was in the wrong court.
Since the very beginning, both attorneys and the judge were wrong; Justice Court Judge Conrad Hafen ruled in favor of his attorney friend in a case over which he had no jurisdiction. It took several years for another judge to explain the case was always in the wrong court; it was supposed to be in District Court and that is when Judge Rob Bare ruled in favor of the defendant.
A Bar complaint against Attorney Benjamin Childs, AKA Ben Childs, was filed by the defendant on October 1, 2019, and after the second incident at a local store the administration of the Las Vegas Tribune is weighing the possibility of filing a police report for harassment, stalking and verbal abuse because some of our employees are afraid for their safety.
