As the city attorney for the City of Las Vegas, Jeff Dorocak and his team oversee all legal aspects of the city, including writing legislation, litigating cases, advising elected officials, and working on topics from opioids to budgeting. He is one of the youngest attorneys to hold the position and oversees an office of 25 attorneys and 40 staff.

Dorocak is a dedicated servant leader who is organized, effective and detail-oriented. One of his most recent accomplishments includes being named a Local Government Fellow by the International Municipal Lawyers Association. This prestigious award was established to recognize attorneys in the field of local government law and to encourage attorney proficiency and competency in the local government legal field. He is one of only three attorneys in Nevada with this distinction and one of 125 in the country.

Known for his thoughtful vision and respectful approach, both in and out of the office, Dorocak volunteers with Nevada Legal Services, Silver State Equality, and Senior Law Program, an organization that recently awarded him the Shearing Senior Community Impact Award. When he’s not actively working to better the community, you can find him walking his dogs or enjoying happy hour with his partner.
