Growing up, I watched my dad’s small business deal with the complexities of government regulation. That experience, together with my experience working in the federal government, give me the background to help my clients deal with those same obstacles. It is my goal to make regulatory, licensing, zoning, and administrative processes easy so that business owners can get back to doing what they do best.


David Edelblute is a business and government affairs attorney specializing in helping businesses and nonprofits navigate complex interactions with local, state, and federal governments including contracting, licensing, regulatory and administrative matters, and commercial litigation. Prior to his legal career, David worked in the hospitality and gaming industry as a corporate consultant and had a career in political campaigning and government work. His unique work history helps him bridge the gap between black and white “legalese” and business owners’ goals, which are often in conflict.

David also stays active in the Federalist Society of Law and Public Policy as the Las Vegas Chapter’s Secretary to the Board and through other initiatives with several local nonprofit organizations.

An academic at heart, David is an active member supporting the State Bar of Nevada by editing the motions and judgements sections of the Nevada Civil Practice Manual.
