Moapa Valley Progress
Moapa Valley High School alumnus, Drue Solomon, has returned to his hometown to use his talents and training to contribute.
Solomon has spent the past few years attending school at BYU Idaho, University of Denver; and graduated last July from Sturn College of Law in Colorado with a Juris Doctor Law Degree.
Last fall he took a position as an attorney in Las Vegas at Mossberg Injury Lawyers which deals with Personal Injury and Workers Compensation cases.
“I chose this firm because of their high standard and ethics in the legal practice,” Solomon said in an interview last tweek. “I find ethics to be important in the legal community.”
Mossberg is proving to be a good fit for Solomon. He said that he has been getting the hands on training and experience at the front lines that he wouldn’t have received elsewhere. Solomon also admires the trial experience of this firm, “I have been receiving the training and mentor work with great lawyers to become the experienced and ethical lawyer that I want to be,” he said.
Solomon is excited and hopeful to help people in the Las Vegas and Moapa Valley area. “I have loved being an attorney and helping clients who need legal assistance,” he said. “I chose personal injury because I’ve found it to be an important role to play in the community.”
Solomon said it is a way to be directly involved in the systems of the community to help those injured that need to put their life back and need help to heal. “I feel good where personal injury is concerned and I feel that is a place where I can put my skills in the court room to use,” he said.
During his last year of law school Solomon said he worked with civil litigations under a licensed attorney and represented victims of violence and protection orders. He received a lot of experience in the court room through this program, he said.
Solomon is the son of Pledger Solomon and Geniel Ozaki. He spent his entire childhood here in Moapa Valley and loved being part of the community. After graduating high school in 2006 Solomon served a Spanish speaking LDS Mission to Charleston, West Virginia. He met his wife while he was attending school in Idaho in 2009. They have two young children with a third baby who will arrive in just a few weeks. Solomon looks forward to raising his family in Moapa Valley.
He has been effective in helping clients in the community already. “I’m here to help in any way I can,” he said.
