LAS VEGAS – Yolanda Carapia was recently awarded the Nevada Justice Association’s 2022 Club X Rising Star Award. Created in 2019, the award recognizes outstanding new leaders in the Nevada Justice Association (NJA), a group of independent lawyers who work to improve Nevada’s justice system.
Carapia is very active in the organization, volunteering on the Diversity Equity Inclusion ((DEI) committee and the Club X committee. She also was recognized this year as a Nevada Business Magazine Top Attorney in the state.
NJA’s Rising Star Award focuses on the contributions of an individual attorney to the organization’s broad goals, including partnering with other members to share knowledge, discuss challenges, and provide the benefits of past experiences to other attorneys.
Carapia first joined De Castroverde Law Group as a law clerk in 2016 while attending law school and as a lawyer in 2018. She was admitted to the Nevada Bar in 2018, and the United States District Court for the District of Nevada in 2019. She was also admitted to the Arizona Bar in 2019.
