Kimber L . Laux
Kimber Laux was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she learned to love the heat. (It’s a dry heat!) As a high schooler she developed a passion for storytelling and in 2015 graduated from UNLV with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Media Studies and Sociology. Kimber began working at the Las Vegas Review-Journal in 2013, where she covered stories about local crime and the courts, which sparked her desire to become an attorney and inspired her to represent her fellow Southern Nevadans.
Kimber attended the William S. Boyd School of Law at UNLV while continuing to work part-time at the Las Vegas Review-Journal. In the summer of 2017, she worked as a law clerk on civil rights cases and also interned for the Honorable Judge Jerry Wiese. During the summer of 2018, she worked as a law clerk at the ACLU of Nevada.
While at Boyd, Kimber was an executive board member of PILA and OutLaws (a law student organization focused on LGTBQ advocacy), and was a member of Immigration Law Society, the Organization of Women Law Students, and the Health Law Society. Kimber co-instructed a weekly Paternity and Custody course at UNLV. She also worked for the Family Justice Clinic as a student attorney, working on cases related to guardianship, adoption, and Special Immigrant Juvenile Status.
In 2019, Kimber obtained her Juris Doctor from Boyd, receiving awards for her work in the Family Justice Clinic.
Kimber was licensed to practice law in Nevada and the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada in 2019.
When she’s not representing Nevada families, Kimber enjoys playing volleyball, hiking, snowboarding, and reading. A true dog lover, she has two of her own.
