Elect Michael J. Miceli
Candidate for District Court Judge – Department 3
Why I am Running For District Court Judge
I chose to stay in Las Vegas since my childhood because I love this community. I have watched it grow from a small town to the mecca that it is today. Las Vegas is my home and it always will be, there is no greater city in the world. As a judge I want to protect this city and make sure that it is treated with the dignity and respect that it deserves.
I became a lawyer because I love the Constitution and the rule of law. I believe that it is my job as an attorney to make sure that everyone follows the rules set forth in the Constitution and I believe that everyone should be treated fairly and just in the criminal justice system, regardless of gender, race, or sexual orientation. I intend to instill those same principles as a District Court Judge.
As an attorney for the past 13 years, I have been in the court room each and every day fighting for justice. I have tried numerous jury trials and I feel that my experience in the courtroom will give me the proper foundation to be an excellent judge.

Many attorneys that run for judge have little to no courtroom experience, especially when it comes to conducting a jury trial. After they are elected, they essentially have to learn on the job how to conduct a courtroom. The problem with this is that a person’s freedom and wellbeing are on the line, and the outcome can be influenced by a judge’s decision. If the judge is unfamiliar with how a hearing should be conducted, it is the person on trial that is affected negatively. I will not have to learn on the job, because my experience as a trial attorney has given me the tools to properly run a courtroom from day one and to make sure that all aspects of the court are run smoothly and effectively.
Each case that comes before a court is different and I promise to take each case on its face and to give it the time and attention that it deserves so that all parties are treated fairly and equally under the law.
