Injury Litigation Attorney
Dustin Birch is a partner in the personal injury practice at Clear Counsel Law Group. Dustin attended the University of Utah for undergraduate studies, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. He then attended and graduated from America’s oldest law school, the Marshall-Wythe School of Law at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. During law school Dustin was a research assistant for Professor Lan Cao, and assisted her in researching law and development in culture change. He also worked for the Petersburg, Virginia prosecutor’s office and for a local law firm, assisting in cases ranging from zoning law to constitutional issues and interpretation of treaties with Native American tribes.
Dustin has been practicing in personal injury since graduating. He started with a small plaintiff’s personal injury firm in 2007 and then worked for one of Nevada’s premier insurance defense firms for two years. In his time as an insurance defense attorney, Dustin handled the firm’s largest catastrophic injury cases, including cases involving paralyzed Plaintiffs and wrongful death actions. Dustin’s time as an insurance defense attorney gives him a unique perspective on how insurance companies handle personal injury claims, and how to best maximize recovery for his clients.
After returning to the side of helping injured victims, Dustin has taken dozens of cases to trial or arbitration and received millions in settlements or awards for his clients. He has handled cases ranging from paralyzed Plaintiffs and wrongful deaths down to low-impact cases with limited injuries. Regardless of the size of the case, Dustin makes sure every base is covered and every avenue explored for maximizing his client’s recovery. Dustin was also appointed as an arbitrator by the Nevada Supreme Court and is recognized as one of the National Trial Lawyer’s Top 40 under 40.
When he’s not helping injured clients recover the damages to which they are entitled, Dustin enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter, and son.
