Joseph Gutierrez is a founding partner of the law firm Maier Gutierrez & Associates and VIP Law. He focuses his legal practice on all phases of litigation, from obtaining fast and favorable pre-litigation results to handling cases through trial and appeal. He regularly represents clients in business litigation, employment litigation, and personal injury cases.
Joseph’s commitment to providing each client with the individualized attention and respect they deserve comes from personal experience. As a victim of a serious car accident as a teenager, Joseph experienced firsthand what it was like to have his case brushed aside by “big name” attorneys on television who were looking for nothing more than a quick settlement. At VIP Law, clients can rest assured that their cases will be handled by skilled attorneys—not just legal assistants—and that no case will be settled out of fear of litigation or taking a case to trial.
Throughout his career, Joseph has successfully litigated personal injury lawsuits, including medical malpractice and pharmaceutical cases. Additionally, he has represented homeowners’ associations (HOAs), major manufacturers, banks, hotels, production shows, and major restaurant chains. Joseph has also successfully represented clients in whistleblower claims and Title VII/retaliation charges.
Joseph has extensive experience in negotiation, settlement, litigation, and trial, in both personal injury and complex commercial litigation cases. He is also experienced in handling pre-litigation investigations for businesses with the goal of avoiding costly litigation.
While in law school, Joseph worked for the United States Circuit Judge Arthur L. Alarcon of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Following graduation and admission to the State Bar of Nevada, he began his law career at a small Las Vegas litigation firm. Prior to founding both MGA Law and VIP Law, Joseph served as a litigator with Nevada’s oldest incorporated law firm, Beckley Singleton, and then at the international law firm, Greenberg Traurig.
After several years of working for large law firms, Joseph established Maier Gutierrez & Associates, with the goal of providing clients the highest level of personal service. After he and his partner Jason Maier were successful in helping multiple clients throughout their personal injury cases the idea for a concierge, boutique personal injury firm was born.
