NAPSO Plan Counsel

I.   NAPSO is proud to introduce the law firm of Clark Hill, which merged with our former firm of Morris Polich & Purdy on July 17, 2017 ( and as NAPSO's backup support to our current legal defense plan.  Clark Hill handles selected civil and administrative cases involving our members and Associations.  Many of our members have already met attorneys Nick Wieczorek, John Hunt, Jeremy Thompson and Bert Wuester as their counsel during IAB/OPR interviews, critical incidents, arbitrations and court appearances

Clark Hill offers public sector administrative and employment-related expertise throughout Nevada and the United States, employing nearly 650 attorneys in its 25 offices coast-to-coast.  They maintain over 200 legal practice areas, including Labor & Employment law and Government & Public Affairs law throughout the United States, the District of Columbia, Ireland and Mexico.

Using its own plan as a model, NAPSO was asked to create a national legal defense plan that expanded to include nearly 2,000 Federal Air Marshals throughout the country.  Clark Hill, through its merger with Morris Polich & Purdy and with the continued guidance of NAPSO, is now the national counsel for federal public safety officers, including those Federal Air Marshals.     

 II.   NAPSO is also proud to introduce attorney Michael Becker and his associates with the Las Vegas Defense Group (, who are handling any criminal charges that may befall our members.  The Becker firm is associated with the Shouse Law Group in California (, which has a number of criminal defense lawyers who are former law enforcement officers.  

Michael and his staff previously obtained a jury aquittal for one of our members who was criminally charged with on-duty offenses in Nye County, Nevada and they successfully represented several members in southern Nevada regarding federal grand jury proceedings arising from their alleged excessive use of force.  Most recently, the firm obtained full dismissals of criminal charges against a NAPSO member in Laughlin, Nevada and in Las Vegas.  The Las Vegas Defense Group represents NAPSO members for off-duty criminal conduct, as well as on-duty conduct as part of the members' dues.

III.   NAPSO is honored to be repesented in northern Nevada by the firm of Ristenpart Law  (, handling cases for our members in Reno, Sparks, Carson City and other parts of northwestern Nevada.  Theresa Ristenpart is an experienced trial attorney with over a decade of litigation in both civil and criminal matters.  She is known for her aggressive and innovative trial strategies and winning difficult cases.  In addition to her trial work, Theresa is a senior adviser to the U.S. State Department for international projects, teaching judges, lawyers, and law enforcement officials from all over the world.  She is an adjunct professor at the University of Nevada in Reno where she teaches legal writing and trial advocacy.  Theresa also serves as a pro tem judge in the Northern Nevada justice courts. 

IV.   In the Elko area, NAPSO works with the law firm of Lockie & Macfarlan to provide our members with outstanding criminal, civil and administrative defense.  David Lockie and Sherb Macfarlan are long time members of the Elko legal community and they are widely respected by all members of the judicial and law enforcement communities.  When it comes to northeastern Nevada, David and Sherb know the legal environment better than anyone and NAPSO'S members benefit from their excellent work.

A Message from the Executive Director
NAPSO's Office Will Remain Open

During these emergency times involving the COVID-19 virus, the NAPSO main office will remain open under the Governor’s Order No. 003, Section 8, which states that non-enumerated businesses may remain open if they do not open to the general public and if they implement social distancing safeguards.  We consider the NAPSO operation as providing vital supportive services to our public safety members who are essential to the health, welfare and safety of our communities. 

Therefore, while the NAPSO office is open and until further notice, the outside doors shall remain locked to the public. Access can be achieved with a key, the door codes or by having someone in the building allowing entry.  Believe it or not, we do experience a small volume of the public who walk in the front doors when they are unlocked during the business day and that must be eliminated.  Remember there is a door bell at the front door.  

I am recommending that all functions that are scheduled in the building by outside interests (parties, gatherings, meetings of more than 10 people) be canceled or postponed.  

I believe these practices will be in accordance with the Governor’s Directive and that we are mandated to follow them.  

Please stay healthy and safe.
