Cher L. Shaine
Cher L. Shaine is a Senior Associate in the Las Vegas, NV office of Murchison & Cumming, LLP focusing her practice on premises and product liability, commercial transportation, complex corporate transactions, federal, state and local taxation issues, corporate compliance with state and federal agencies, administrative law, cyber security risks and data protection, and corporate retention policies.
Ms. Shaine's litigation experience includes all phases of arbitration, mediation, administrative hearings, and trial and appeal before the Nevada State and Federal Courts. Recently, she achieved a positive result for a client who owned and operated a national trucking company in a case where the opposing party claimed a substantial amount as damages due to a motor vehicle accident. The incident occurred when a vehicle suddenly came to a stop in front of the client's truck driver and despite the minor scratches to the bumper of the vehicle, the claim for damages included over a year of medical expenses and a significant sum for lost wages as a Veterinarian. Once the medical invoices and last two paychecks were provided as proof of damages, Ms. Shaine diligently examined the documents and the employment status of the Veterinarian. The claim for lost wages was quickly rescinded based upon Ms. Shaine's proof that the Veterinarian's license had been revoked a week prior to the motor vehicle accident; and shortly thereafter the entire case was dismissed.
Ms. Shaine was recently recognized as an Elite Legal in the 2017 Nevada Business representing only the top 4% of the attorneys in the State of Nevada. She is a member of the Las Vegas Social Register, Southern Nevada Association of Women Attorneys, ISSA National, SDISSA, San Diego Chapter, Clark County Bar Association, LGBT National, the Tax Law and LGBT sections of the State Bar of Nevada, President of the Southern Chapter of Claims and Litigation Management Alliance 2011- 2013, and a former member of the Nevada Trials Attorneys Association now known as the Nevada Justice Association, where she served on the Legislative Committee. She is currently qualifying as a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) by the international nonprofit organization, the Information Systems Security Association.
Ms. Shaine volunteers with the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada to help with pro bono cases for those in need and considers giving back to the community to be an important aspect in her life. Away from the office, she enjoys visiting her daughters in San Diego where they attend college.
