Every successful team requires a member who embodies stability and a grounding influence, and for HMC, that individual is John Clement. As a co-founder, John’s focus on establishing the firm with steadfast fiscal discipline and unwavering foundational values has been instrumental in our success. His role in providing a stable base has been a cornerstone in the development and growth of the firm.
John met Dalton at the William S. Boyd School of Law (UNLV), and they quickly became close friends. After graduating from law school in 2000 with honors, John pursued a practice focusing on consumer bankruptcy, small business matters, guardianship, advanced trust and estate planning, and probate litigation.
His undergraduate degree in political science and history led him to study international law and foreign policy at The American University in Washington D.C. John initially joined Dalton’s practice in 2008, concentrating on Workers’ Compensation matters as well as general liability defense. In 2018, he joined forces with Dalton and Shaun to form HM&C.
Like his fellow partners, John is a certified workers’ compensation expert through the State of Nevada Bar, a prestigious designation held by only five defense lawyers in Nevada. Currently, John represents third-party administrators and insurers in defending workers’ compensation claims at administrative and State Court hearings, as well as related appellate work.
Now that we’ve taken a closer look at our founders, we’ll have more to say about the amazing team that they have assembled incoming posts.
