Jerry C. Carter

I am the founder of the Sierra Crest Business Law Group. I have known I would be a lawyer from the moment I joined my high school debate team. Also, when I was in high school, my father and two partners started a successful software business. That business enabled my parents to put all seven of us children through college, led to several memorable family fishing trips, and enabled my father to buy his dream salmon fishing boat. The whole family was excited for my father’s success and proud of his accomplishment. In addition, that business employed about 15 people. I am paying those blessings forward when my law firm helps business owners like you build and protect their companies. I take my job seriously because you inspire me and because I know how much is riding on keeping your business in legal compliance, keeping your business out of costly and distracting legal disputes, and helping you strategically grow your business.

I graduated in 1992 from the University of Chicago Law School, where I served as a Comment Editor for the University of Chicago Law Review. I received a B.A. in philosophy from Brigham Young University in 1988.

Prior to entering private practice, I served as a clerk to federal Court of Appeals Judge W. Eugene Davis. I then began my business litigation career at Mayer, Brown & Platt, in Chicago, Illinois. In 1996, I located my practice in Nevada, where I have represented individuals and businesses as a Reno Business Attorney ever since.
