MICHAEL SANDOVAL Fighting for a Purpose: Meet F or Michael Sandoval, being “Battle Born” means making a difference. It means being dedicated to putting in the long hours and hard work required for a greater purpose. As a lawyer at the Richard Harris Law Firm, that purpose is helping injured people get treated fairly and receive the full compensation they deserve following an accident. Born and raised in the historic town of Ely, Nevada, Michael learned early on that hard work reaps the most rewards. After graduating high school, he left his hometown to attend Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah, where he competed on the college rodeo circuit excelling as a heeler in team roping. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in political science and criminal justice in 2010. Michael continued his education at the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and obtained his Juris Doctor Degree in 2013. After law school, Michael broke into the Nevada legal scene by joining a small Las Vegas criminal defense and immigration law firm. “As a new attorney, it’s common to be involved in a lot of different cases by helping other lawyers,” Michael explained, “but there is a sense of accomplishment when you finally have a case that you sign at intake and see it through to a successful conclusion.” In 2014, Michael joined the Richard Harris Law Firm as a personal injury lawyer. He spends his days going head-to-head with big insurance companies for victims of auto accidents, on-the-job injuries and dangerous premises. The battle with insurance defense lawyers is challenging, and being an advocate for his clients by giving them a voice, and a fair settlement, is the ultimate reward. Away from the office, Michael enjoys sports, spending time outdoors, taking advantage of Las Vegas’ endless entertainment options and escaping with his family to Northern Nevada. 22
