Snell & Wilmer is pleased to announce that V.R. Bohman, an attorney in the firm’s Las Vegas office, has been elected to serve on the board of directors of the United Way of Southern Nevada. Bohman began serving his three-year term on July 1, 2018.
United Way of Southern Nevada unites the community to improve people’s lives by bringing donors, volunteers, nonprofits, and businesses together to help children enter school ready to learn, help high school students reach graduation day, and support individuals working to earn
a degree or certification, all while creating stability for their families. United Way of Southern Nevada is one of the United Way of America’s 1,200 local offices throughout the country.
“I am honored to join the Board of Directors of the United Way of Southern Nevada,” said Bohman. “Having previously worked with the United Way in Utah as a community relations fellow, and as a native Nevadan, I am excited to be a part of United Way’s efforts in Southern Nevada and to help this great organization continue to create positive change here in our valley.”
Snell & Wilmer has been involved with the United Way of Southern Nevada since 2013. Last year marked Snell & Wilmer’s Fifth Annual Campaign in the Nevada offices. During the past five years, Snell & Wilmer attorneys and staff have contributed a total of $67,000 to the United Way. In addition, Snell & Wilmer donated $20,000 to the Neighborhood Network program as part of a three-year grant to provide quality early education to children and workforce development opportunities to caregivers. Previously, Snell & Wilmer received two awards from the United Way of Southern Nevada —
the Live United 20 Award (2014-2015) and the Campaign Pacesetter Award (2015-2016).
“We are proud of our long-standing partnership with Snell & Wilmer and the appointment of V.R. Bohman to our board,” said Scott Emerson, United Way President and CEO. “His deep legal professional background and passionate commitment to Southern Nevada’s youth and adults will help us accomplish our mission of uniting our community to improve people’s lives.”
At Snell & Wilmer, Bohman practices in the commercial litigation group. His practice is concentrated in helping companies and individuals navigate litigation. A former judicial clerk to Judge Dawson in the District of Nevada’s U.S. District Court, his experience enables him to craft and present precisely targeted arguments. He received his J.D., magnum cum laude, from the J. Reuben Clark Law School, and both his B.A. and M.P.A. from Brigham Young University.
In addition to his work with the United Way, Bohman works closely with various adult and youth groups in his local congregation. Bohman has been named to Mountain States Super Lawyers for Civil Litigation Defense (2017), Mountain States Super Lawyers for Civil Litigation Defense as a Rising Star (2018) and to Nevada Business Magazine’s Legal Elite (2017).
