Snell & Wilmer has announced that Adam Tully, an attorney in the firm’s Las Vegas office, was recently appointed to the Nevada Supreme Court Access to Justice Commission as a State Bar of Nevada Young Lawyers Section representative. Tully will begin serving in November 2017, and his term will expire July 1, 2021.
In 2006, the Nevada Supreme Court created a permanent Access to Justice Commission to promote equal access to civil justice. The Nevada Access to Justice Commission is comprised of 18 members and co-chaired by Justices James Hardesty and Michael Douglas. The commission works to improve the ability of all Nevadans, particularly those of modest means, to access legal resources in Nevada by improving the delivery and funding of legal service programs, including pro bono and self-help services. The commission is supported by its director, Brad Lewis, who is employed by the State Bar of Nevada.
At Snell and Wilmer, Tully focuses his practice in commercial litigation. In 2017, Tully was recognized by Nevada Business Magazine’s Legal Elite as a Best Up and Coming Attorney. He clerked for Hon. Justice Ron D. Parraguirre in the Nevada Supreme Court from 2014 to 2016 and was a Judicial Extern to Judge Robert C. Jones in the U.S. District Court for Nevada in 2012. From 2009 to 2011, Tully worked for the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada. Tully earned his J.D., magna cum laude, from University of Nevada, Las Vegas, William S. Boyd School of Law and his B.A., cum laude, from Boston University.

The Nevada State Contractors Board is pleased to announce that executive officer Margi A. Grein has been appointed by Gov. Brian Sandoval to join Nevada’s core team, which will be participating in the National Occupational Licensing Learning Consortium. Nevada was one of 11 states selected to participate in the consortium, which will analyze licensing policies, study actions to remove barriers that prevent workers from entering the workforce and increase the portability of licenses across state lines.
Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Utah and Wisconsin will be joining Nevada’s delegation at the consortium, which is set to hold its first meeting in December. It is anticipated the consortium will focus on key populations facing the greatest barriers to licensure, including skilled immigrants, those with criminal records, veterans and the unemployed.
The consortium is supported by the National Conference of State Legislatures, National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of State Governments, and will afford states the opportunity to engage directly with experts in the identified areas.
