At Nadia von Magdenko & Associates, our firm is dedicated to serving our local community of Las Vegas. We believe everyone should have access to the services and opportunities that help them thrive. Since the early 2000s, Nadia has been providing legal counsel to those who need it most. As the first student at the University of Nevada Las Vegas Law School, she knows just how valuable her education was — after all, it’s what allows our office to work with injured victims and stand up to insurance companies every single day.
For this reason, Nadia von Magdenko & Associates is proud to offer a $500 Personal Injury Scholarship for one exemplary student who displays an interest in the legal field.
