Ms. McKeller is running for Family Court Department M.
Ms. McKellar was born in Northern Kentucky. She was then raised in the small coal mining town of Gillette, Wyoming. This provided her with an excellent education, solid foundation, and family roots. Ever since she was a child, she knew she wanted to be a lawyer.
After graduation from high school, she was accepted into the University of Wyoming. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology from the University of Wyoming in 2002. Ms. McKellar would frequent Las Vegas during her college career for football, and basketball games with her friends and family. Upon her first visit in 2001, standing on the bridge of the Venetian Hotel, she knew she wanted to eventually call Las Vegas, her home. She always appreciated the magic of this City.
Ms. McKellar started Law school moving to Michigan and graduating from Thomas M. Cooley Law School, with her Juris Doctorate in 2006. Immediately she took it upon herself to contact various judges in the Las Vegas area, to start her school internship. In the Spring of 2006, she was an intern for the Honorable Nancy Oesterle in Las Vegas Justice Court. Moving to Vegas was a difficult change, but the legal community accepted her, and she thrived in this environment. Ever since she became a lawyer, she knew she wanted to be a judge.
Ms. McKellar devoted her entire practice exclusively to the area of Family Law by working closely with two of the most prominent Family Law Firms in Las Vegas from 2007 until 2011. She gained a plethora of knowledge and experience handling a voluminous amount of divorce and custody cases. It was at this point that Ms. McKellar decided to open up her own practice.
McKellar Family Law was established in 2011. In June of 2018, she contracted with the Clark County as a conflict counsel and defender of juvenile delinquents. Ms. McKellar has now been practicing for over 13 years, she has a high level of litigation experience in all aspects of family law including highly contested custody matters, and high asset divorce cases. She has also gained valuable experience in criminal matters in her years. Helping kids and families who have ran into some trouble, is something that she really loves to do.
Ms. McKellar is a current member of the State Bar of Nevada Family Law Section. She has various published articles in the Nevada Lawyer and the Clark County Bar Associations, Communique. Writing is something that she likes to do in her spare time, as well as spend time with friends and family.
With her knowledge and experience, she would be an excellent addition to the family court bench. She would appreciate your vote for her, this coming election.
