About Us

Maupin, Cox & LeGoy was founded in 1972 by Steven T. Walther and Jon J. Key under the firm name of Walther & Key.  Ernest J. Maupin joined the firm in 1973, and the name of the firm and its members have evolved since then.  Mr. Walther retired from the firm in January 2006 following his appointment to the Federal Election Commission where he now serves as the Chairman.  Mr. Key is retired but remains of counsel to the firm. 

Although the firm began with a local general civil practice, it now has a national reputation for its extensive and broad based expertise in all aspects of civil law.  The firm handles matters requiring the resolution of complex civil disputes, whether through mediation, arbitration, or litigation.  The firm has an extensive tax practice and handles all phases of federal tax matters, including individual, partnership, trust, estate, and corporate income tax matters, estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer tax matters, and tax litigation.  The firm handles all aspects of civil litigation, corporate and public finance matters, creditor bankruptcy, real property, health care, employment, civil rights defense, and education law matters, including representation of institutional and governmental entities.

Our law firm has enjoyed the highest possible rating offered by Martindale-Hubbell (“AV”) for more than 30 years.  In 2012, the firm was listed in Fortune magazine as part of Martindale-Hubbell’s first ever “Top Ranked Law Firms.”  Of 254,000 firms rated by Martindale-Hubbell, Maupin, Cox & LeGoy was one of only 966 firms nationwide selected for having at least one-third of its attorneys achieve the “AV Preeminent” rating.  The law firm also enjoys the distinction of having many of its attorneys listed in the respected publication "The Best Lawyers in America," which includes the names of attorneys selected by their peers as the best attorneys in their specialty areas, and includes only the top 1% of all attorneys in America.  In addition, through its “Best Lawyers-Best Law Firms” initiative, U.S. News & World Report has consistently recognized Maupin, Cox & LeGoy as one of the top law firms in the State of Nevada.

The firm is also very active in the community.  Members of the firm regularly participate in continuing legal education programs, professional association activities, pro bono programs, civic affairs, and a number of community service projects.
