LA VEGAS – Yolanda Carapia recently received the 2022 Club X Rising Star award from the Nevada Justice Association.

Carapia is very active in the organization, volunteering on the Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI) Committee and the Club X Committee. She was also recognized this year as Nevada Business Magazine’s Top Lawyer in the State.
The NJA Rising Star Award focuses on an individual attorney’s contributions to the overall goals of the organization, including partnering with other members to share knowledge, discuss challenges, and provide the benefits of past experiences to other lawyers.
