Mandy McKellar

About the candidate: Ms. McKellar was born in Northern Kentucky. She was then raised in the small coal mining town of Gillette, Wyoming. This provided her with an excellent education, solid foundation, and family roots. Ms. McKellar graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor in Criminal Justice and minor in Psychology in 2001. She later graduated from Law School, with her Juris Doctorate in 2006. In the Summer of 2006, she was an intern for the Honorable Nancy Oesterle in Las Vegas Justice Court. Moving to Vegas was a difficult change, but the legal community accepted her, and she thrived in this environment.

Ms. McKellar devoted her entire practice exclusively to the area of Family Law by working closely with two of the most prominent Family Law Firms in Las Vegas from 2007 until 2011. She gained a plethora of knowledge and experience handling a voluminous amount of divorce and custody cases, in all aspects of litigation. It was at this point that, Ms. McKellar decided to open up her own practice. McKellar Family Law was established in 2011. In June of 2018, she contracted with the Clark County Office of Appointed Counsel as a conflict counsel and defender of juvenile delinquents. Ms. McKellar has now been practicing for over 13 years, she has a high level of litigation experience in all aspects of family law including highly contested custody matters, and high asset divorce cases. She has also gained valuable experience in criminal matters in her years. Helping kids and families who have ran into some trouble, is something that she really loves to do. With her knowledge and experience, she would be an excellent addition to the family court bench. She requests and would appreciate your vote for her, this coming election for Family Court Judge Department M.
