A native northern Nevadan, Therese Shanks is a lawyer at Robison, Sharp, Sullivan & Brust in Reno, Nevada.  She practices in appellate law and civil litigation.

Therese began her legal career as a law clerk at the Nevada Supreme Court.  Her time at the Court fueled her passion for appellate law.  She has extensive experience in appellate practice and is admitted to practice before all Nevada state appellate courts, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.

When not working or writing, Therese enjoys spending time with her husband and two young daughters.  Being a working mom is like being the ringleader of a goat rodeo, but she would not have it any other way.
