Veronica was born and raised in Michigan.  She wanted to become a lawyer and judge since the age of 8.  

Veronica attended Michigan State University and was a part of James Madison College, graduating with a degree in International Relations.  While in college, she worked as an intern at the Michigan Governor's Office.  Veronica received a law degree from Western Michigan-Cooley Law School. 

In 2004, Veronica moved to Las Vegas and began working for the law firm of Dempsey, Roberts & Smith, and was licensed in Nevada in 2005.  She was blessed to have a great mentor and work with many talented people.

She was a Senior Attorney with Dempsey, Roberts & Smith, practicing civil litigation and family law until 2017.

In 2017, Veronica began working for Mandarich Law Group focusing on civil litigation and consumer debt law.

Veronica is licensed with the State Bar of Nevada and the U.S. District Court.  She has experience with settlements, arbitrations, mediations, hearings, and trials.  

In addition to being a practicing attorney for 15 years in general law, civil litigation, consumer debt, probate, and family law, Veronica serves our community. 

For 11 years she has volunteered with the State Bar of Nevada Fee Dispute Committee as a mediator and arbitrator.


For the past 3 years she also has proudly served as a Justice of the Peace Pro Tem Judge in the Las Vegas Small Claims court.  This position solidified her desire to become a District Court Judge.  

Veronica has the unique experience of seeing both sides of the courtroom - as an attorney and as a judge.  She wishes to bring this experience, common sense, and kindness to serve the people of Clark County as District Court Judge.  

Veronica also volunteers often at her children's school and is a member of her neighborhood service committee.

Veronica and her husband enjoy being outdoors.  They have three sports-loving boys and a dog.
