Lawyers Samuel A. Schwartz and Frank M. Flansburg III have teamed up to form Schwartz Flansburg PLLC, a Las Vegas-based law firm.
Schwartz Flansburg’s commercial practice areas include restructuring, general corporate representation, real estate litigation, construction and design, construction litigation, commercial litigation, business formation and appellate litigation. The firm’s consumer practice areas include real estate, personal injury and bankruptcy/restructuring.
The law firm has hit the ground running, representing the victim’s family in the Tammy Meyers murder case. Myers was shot in the head on Feb. 12 while she stood in the cul-de-sac in front of her northwest Las Vegas Valley home. She died two days later.
“It’s no secret that Las Vegas’ legal community is undergoing a major reshuffling with some of the state’s most respected longtime law firms breaking up or experiencing major transitions,” Schwartz said in a statement. “We represent that generation of experienced attorneys who are ready to make a strong commitment to individualized client relationships. We have taken the position that we won’t simply take up an area of practice without having the talented attorneys to truly support our clients’ needs.”
Flansburg, co-founder and co-owner of the firm, is a longtime business attorney. He handles a broad array of areas related to business law, representing global companies, small businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals. Before co-founding Schwartz Flansburg, he was a shareholder with a large Las Vegas law firm.
“We are in the business of having our clients be part of a team,” Flansburg said in a statement. “Our business is not simply us shuffling paper or going to court. We are counselors who take the time so our clients understand their options and collaborate in the direction of their case.”
He added, “The practice of law is a particularly service-oriented discipline that requires a great deal of time dedicated to the needs of the client. In many instances our client is a victim of a life-altering incident, whether that incident be a business dispute or significant injury. While we have handled thousands of cases for thousands of other clients, each case is unique and personal to each individual client, requiring attention to nearly every facet of their personal and professional life.”
Schwartz Flansburg’s offices are located in Town Square Las Vegas at 6623 S. Las Vegas Boulevard, Suite 300, Las Vegas. The office is hiring attorneys.

We Care launches
As Clark County School District gears up for the 2015-16 school year by working to fill more than 2,000 open teaching positions, Las Vegas Metro Chamber volunteers are encouraging prospective teachers to say “yes” to Las Vegas.
Through the We Care program, a partnership between the Metro Chamber and CCSD, volunteers from the business community are reaching out to teachers who have been offered contracts by CCSD to urge them to accept a position in the Clark County schools.
The We Care program aims to cultivate relationships with prospective teachers in order to recruit them to Clark County. Volunteers call and email prospective teachers who have been offered a contract by CCSD to share information about the great quality of life in Southern Nevada; answer questions about Las Vegas and show how much the community cares about having good teachers in our classrooms.
“Southern Nevada is an amazing place to call home, and I’m thankful that volunteers from our business community have joined the We Care program to reinforce this message to potential CCSD teachers,” CCSD Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky said in a statement. “CCSD is a growing and thriving place to work, full of opportunity for those interested in starting or continuing their careers as educators. Educating students takes the entire community, and Las Vegas Metro Chamber is impacting the lives of students by encouraging prospective teachers to join our team. I would have been happy to participate in a program like this when I was recruited as a new CCSD teacher 27 years ago.”
This past school year, more than 600 teaching positions went unfilled in the CCSD and a teacher shortage is predicted for the coming academic year.
“Good teachers are the key component to developing a skilled and capable workforce. The Metro Chamber is proud to work with the Clark County School District through the We Care program to help recruit new teachers to Southern Nevada,” Kristin McMillan, president and CEO of the Metro Chamber, said in a statement. “Our members are demonstrating to these prospective teachers that Las Vegas is a great place to live and our business community supports K-12 education.”
