I was born and raised here in Las Vegas. My family owned and operated Pat’s Chinese Kitchen in the Commercial Center. I grew up in the family business, adopting key principles of hard work, respect, and discipline. My family and I were very involved in many local organizations including Meals on Wheels, City of Hope, Shade Tree and Children’s Miracle Network.
At a very young age, I suffered a serious traumatic brain injury that resulted in the entire right side of my body being paralyzed. However, through the love and support of my family, my mother’s homemade physical therapy, coupled with my perseverance and determination, I has since overcome the majority of my disability.
I graduated from Bishop Gorman High School, and attended college at UNLV, where I graduated with a B.A. in Criminal Justice and a minor in Sociology.
After which, I attended Creighton University School of Law. There, I clerked for both the United States Attorney’s Office as well as the Omaha’s City Prosecutors Office. I was a member of Habitat for Humanity, the Open Door Mission, and worked at the Creighton Legal Clinic.
Shortly after graduation, I tested and successfully passed Phase One of the FBI’s Special Agent’s application process. Unfortunately, my progress to Phase Two was postponed by 9/11.
In 2004, the FBI resumed hiring and I successfully completed Phase Two of the FBI’s application and testing protocol. However, after further review and a special medical examination, I was ultimately dismissed due to my physical disability.
In 2005, I was admitted to practice law in the state of Nevada. I left private practice in 2007 to work for the Criminal Division Office of The Las Vegas City Attorney, and was responsible for prosecuting crimes committed within the City’s jurisdiction.
As of May 2010, I returned to private practice. In 2012, I opened my own law practice, Ginn Law, PLLC.
Since 2014, I have volunteered and served as a Truancy Diversion Program Judge for three separate CCSD schools. My role as a TDP judge is to make recommendations, encourage and reward positive behavior, using incentives that I personally provide and that the program provides for student’s progress.
As a result of my commitment to the cause, in August of 2016, I was unanimously approved and appointed by the Eighth Judicial District Court to serve as a judge pro tempore for the Clark County Family Court Juvenile Delinquency cases.
My life experiences and education have shaped me into the honest, compassionate and just person necessary to serve on the bench today. These attributes are what will make me an excellent judge and are what inspired me to seek election of Las Vegas Justice of the Peace. I am committed in my goal of helping others and determined to make a difference.
