John L. Bertoldo
John Bertoldo has been a practicing attorney in the State of Nevada since 1985 and has been an effective managing partner at Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith since becoming a partner in 1992.
After high school, John served a volunteer two-year mission in Italy for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and remains fluent in Italian.
John received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Brigham Young University followed by a joint Juris Doctor and Master of Business Administration, also from Brigham Young University.
John practices exclusively in the area of plaintiff’s personal injury, with special emphasis in the handling of medical malpractice, brain injury and wrongful death cases. He knows that in order to save the insurance company’s money, insurance company lawyers, doctors, and experts will call anyone a liar — even if they lack the evidence to actually prove it.
In 1997, he became a member of the Million Dollar Advocate Forum, a prestigious group of attorneys nationwide who have obtained a verdict or settlement in excess of a million dollars.
John’s most notable case was a $19.5 million verdict in 2001, where he teamed with partner Steve Baker on behalf of a lovely young lady who suffered a catastrophic brain injury after being hit by a Republic Silver State garbage truck.
John has served as a member of the Medical Dental Legal Screening Panel of Southern Nevada, and the Southern Nevada Disciplinary Panel of the State Bar of Nevada. He is also a member of the following organizations: Clark County Bar Association, Nevada Justice Association, American Association for Justice, Nevada Society of Italian American Lawyers, the Western Trial Lawyers Association, and The Nevada Law Foundation. He is also a member of Million Dollar Advocates Forum and a Lifetime Achievement member to America’s Top 100 Attorneys.
Recognized for his commitment to excellence and success, John was named a 2010, 2011, 2015 and 2016 Mountain States Super Lawyer.
John and his wife, Heather, are the proud parents of four wonderful children and three beautiful grandchildren. He enjoys golf, water sports and dirt biking. He is active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Boy Scouts of America, and other local charitable endeavors including the Southern Nevada Immunization Coalition (SNIC) and El Concilio Hispano
