 Mary Perry

                           I was raised in Hardy Arkansas, which had a population of 750 people. That population has not
moved much since my younger days. It had few opportunities for raising a family without
government assistance, at least part of the time. We did not even have a McDonalds. My Mom
and Dad supported us by being truck drivers, waiting tables, and jack of all trades just to keep
food on the table. When my parents offered to send me through college, I turned them down. I
knew I would not appreciate it as much if I did not earn it myself.

I followed the path of many of the young girls in Hardy follow: have children, get married, work
odd jobs. I had a daughter, got married and worked by bailing hay, cutting wood, and even as a
caretaker. My marriage fell apart, so I joined the Air Force at 21.

I loved serving my country. This was some of the best years of my life and I grew up, finally.
Unfortunately, I was medically discharged eight and a half years later. I moved to Las Vegas as
my final destination out of the Air Force

While trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my, I worked as a keno runner,
armed security, and in retail. Finally, I realized I would never earn more than $12.00 an hour, if I
never went to college. I know how hard it is to raise a family and pay bills on a small pay check.
In May 1996, I graduated from UNLV with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. I
still could not find a job that would pay more than $12.00 per hour starting out. It was
disheartening. I decided I wanted to be an attorney and was lucky enough to be accepted at
William S. Boyd's School of Law, at UNLV, It was Boyd's Charter Class and I was lucky
enough to be a part of setting the standard for all other graduating classes.

Even though I have experience in criminal law and personal injury, my passion is Family Law:
divorce, child custody, child support, guardianships, abuse & neglect, etc., I have developed a
deep respect and affection for the unique complexities that involve family law. So much so, I
have represented over 1,000 clients, including more than 100 pro bono, in 13 years. I am known
for assisting people around the courthouse just because they looked confused. I sit down with
them and help with their paperwork and explain as much as possible. There are countless times I
have done this. The court staff knows if I am there, I am willing to help with people at their
window, when the clerks are unable to help.

I am licensed in Nevada and Hawaii, and I am currently studying for the Missouri and Arkansas
