Practicing in Northern Nevada for 40 Years
Richard F. Cornell, is one of the few Nevada lawyers whose practice emphasizes appeals and post-conviction practice. In active practice in Nevada continuously since 1980, over the years his practice has winnowed into an appellate practice of criminal and domestic appeals before the Ninth Circuit and the Nevada Supreme Court, and a post-conviction habeas practice in state and federal courts, and a practice of sealing of records and appearances before the Nevada Board of Pardons.

The Mission Statement
“Call me stubborn. Call me perverse. Or call me a taxi. But I demand accountability out of the system of justice. In a day and age where tempering justice with mercy is deemed ‘politically incorrect’ and ‘the powers that be’ seem hell-bent on pandering to the ‘hypothetical soccer moms’ out there, somebody has to call for our courts to look carefully, not cynically, at those insisting that the Federal Constitution be honored. And that ‘somebody’ is I.”
HELPING SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT.
