Brian Sandoval

Brian E. Sandoval (born 1965) is an American politician who served as the Nevada Attorney General from 2002 until November 2, 2005, when he resigned to accept a federal district judgeship. Previous to his service as the principal legal officer of the state, he was a state legislator and the youngest chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission. Sandoval rose to national prominence, declared by President of the United States George W. Bush as a rising star of the party, and was honored with the opportunity to address the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City.

Sandoval received his Bachelor's Degree from the University of Nevada, Reno in 1986 and his law degree from Ohio State University in 1989. He is also a graduate of Bishop Manogue High School.

Prior to being elected to the state legislature Sandoval worked for three law firms where he was involved in business and environmental litigation. The third of these, the law firm of Gamboa, Sandoval and Stovall he was a founding partner in.

Unlike some legislators, Sandoval saw bills he sponsored become law during his four years in the state legislature. One was to allow indigent defendants to perform community service to defray their legal costs while another increased the penalties for operating a boat under the influence of alcohol. In all 14 bills Sandoval sponsored became law.

During his time as a state gaming commissioner Sandoval worked to make slot machines less apealing to children, to create programs to help gambling addicts recover and also to limit the proliferation of casinos into residential neighborhoods as opposed to key tourist spots.

Sandoval served as Nevada State Chairman of the Bush-Cheney reelection campaign in 2004.

Sandoval is married to Kathleen Sandoval. They have three children, James, Madeline and Marisa.
