It looks like one of my favorite Las Vegas attorneys, Brian C. Padgett, has finally hit the big time. And by that, I mean he hit the pages of the Las Vegas Review Journal, which published a story by Glen Puit the day after we posted a similar story about Padgett being arrested and charged with passing $400,000 in bad checks. (Las Vegas attorney charged with writing $400K in bad checks)

In the story, Puit wrote,

“The criminal complaint states Padgett wrote checks, one for $350,000 and one for $50,000, that bounced.”

And also,

“Clark County prosecutor Michael Giles said in a recent Justice Court hearing that Padgett was arrested by Las Vegas police “in his vehicle in a McDonald’s parking lot in the middle of the night.”

Nice detail there.

We’ll be watching to see how this plays out. At least for now Padgett is getting some attention from law enforcement and other media. About time. All you need to do is read through the articles on this website detailing the litany of issues Padgett has been involved with during his adult life here in Las Vegas. And check out our sister sites, and his baby mamma’s website, for more information and other detailed stories.


There was also this in July

The new Nevada regulator, the Cannabis Compliance Board, signed off on the agreement with CWNevada LLC, whose majority owner is attorney Brian Padgett this past Tuesday. As a result of the settlement, CWNevada will pay $1.5 million in back taxes, $1.25 million in fines, lose six licenses and must sell its remaining eight licenses.

Padgett has been replaced by a receiver, Dotan Melech, who signed off on the agreement. In addition to the fines and back taxes, CWNevada also owes $300,000 in back pay to employees.



Indeed Employer Reviews weren’t exactly loving either 

The owners talking trash about “medical” patients was not ok with me. I met some good Workers but the owners can bite a snake

It’s too bad the owner was such a scumbag

Horrible Upper Management
