“Our legal panel was unanimous in its support for Yeager. One said she is “the best qualified by far” and another said “she is more well-rounded” than her opponent.
Yeager is the specialty court hearing master for the Eighth Judicial District Court and presides over Mental Health Court, Co-Occurring Disorders Court, Civil Commitment Court and Assisted Outpatient Treatment. Prior to being selected as the first specialty court hearing master in 2017, she was appointed to the Las Vegas Justice Court Bench in 2015. Before she was a judge, Yeager was a Clark County public defender for more than 19 years, during which she tried more than 50 jury trials and hundreds of bench trials and was a team chief overseeing a team of seven attorneys. Yeager also was an adjunct professor and the previous director of externships for UNLV’s William S. Boyd School of Law before choosing to run for this seat.”
