Dan Gilliam


Dan Gilliam has been practicing criminal law for over fifteen years.

But before that, he grew up in a small town on Lake Erie – Port Clinton, OH. Upon graduating high school, he matriculated to THE Ohio State University where he obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Education, his Master’s Degree in Education, and his Juris Doctorate Degree.

He then immediately relocated to Las Vegas to begin his legal career. Dan started out at the Clark County Public Defender’s Office where he represented thousands of clients charged with anything from minor misdemeanors to major felonies.

After two and a half years, Dan became a prosecutor in the City of Henderson, focusing on prosecuting DUIs and Domestic Violence cases and teaching Probable Cause, Search and Seizure, and DUI Investigations to the recruits at the Henderson Police Academy.

Serving eight years as a prosecutor and legal educator, he opened his own practice – Gilliam Law Group – where he focused on all major felonies including murders and sexual assaults.

Initially, Dan teamed up with Bighorn Law to handle all of its criminal cases. After a short time, he came to work with Bighorn Law full time.
