Bill Pruitt is from a military family, his dad, a Pearl Harbor veteran. If his approach to practicing law could be summed up in two words they’d probably be "Get ready." So while most cases settle, he still looks at each of them as if one day he may have to answer "Yes, your honor," to what’s usually the first question a judge asks—"Ready, counsel?" Bill handles cases in Nevada and Utah courts.


In addition to trial work, his practice emphasizes major bodily injury claims; traffic and transportation accidents; products liability; insurance coverage disputes and bad faith litigation; asbestos claims; professional negligence; complex litigation and appeals.
