  • Shawn Oliphant represented my family after my husband was killed.
    I highly recommend this Law Firm. Shawn Oliphant represented my family after my husband was killed. Not only did Shawn keep my families needs and wishes at the forefront. He was so empathetic. He really has a gift for making you feel heard. Because of Covid our case took 4 years to resolve. Shawn always kept in touch with us. He kept us apprised regarding rescheduled court dates, etc. (rescheduled because of covid) We never felt like he had forgotten us. Even his staff is great. Your calls are always returned promptly. If you need help with legal documents his paralegal Debra is amazing. Between Shawn and Debra you can not go wrong. We are very grateful to have had Shawn in our corner during this time. Very grateful indeed.

  • You all are truly the best
    Kelli and team, I want take a moment to say thank you, to all of you. Although, I’m not sure that really covers it at this point. Being in family courts is a wild experience and something that certainly can drive you crazy at times so thank you guys for dealing with my anxiety and emotions! I am eternally grateful for the care and consideration you all took in our case and the part each of you has played. I never could have imagined, after nearly 7 years of court battles, that it would finally come to a close this way. I wish I could truly find the words to express the emotions I have gone through, but as I’m sure you all know by now - it is a rollercoaster of emotions. Most of all, I am just thankful. You all are truly the best and I only wish the office could have taken my case the first time around!

  • Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are.

    Kelli, thank you for always talking me off the ledge, always having a game plan, and putting my worries and fears to rest as best you could. I couldn’t have overcome these last couple of years without your representation and it means the world to me that we can now move on in a positive manner and not have this looming cloud over us. We’re the happiest we’ve ever been and we owe you SUCH a huge thank you. Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are. The fight was well worth it – and we can finally breathe and that means more to me than anything.

  • We truly appreciate everything your office and staff did to help us
    Kelli and Staff,

    I wanted to thank you for all of the help in our recent guardianship case. We know the case was quite challenging and time consuming, especially given some of the parties in the case including family members and other attorneys. In the end, we managed to get to a place that we feel was the best for the situation. Even though we spent a lot of money, your services were worth the cost. The old adage of you get what you pay for was definitely true in this matter when compared to other counsel in the case. We truly appreciate everything your office and staff did to help us and that Kelli did not allow us to throw in the towel, even though we felt defeated on some occasions. Thank you again!

  • Stephanie Funk has great interpersonal skills & a strong work ethic.

    I reside in Vancouver British Columbia and on Feb 21, 2022, my sister who lives in Reno, Nevada as a retired State of Nevada employee passed away. I was nominated by my family to oversee the estate of my sister. I have been to the beautiful City of Reno on many occasions to visit my sister. I am familiar with Reno though I have not had any dealings with a law firm in the US for legal advice. I required legal advice and contacted three law firms with one being yours. I spoke with Stephanie Funk and from the outset, she was of great assistance. She took the time to answer all my questions and provided additional information that I did not think of. As a result of her assistance and guidance, I hired the firm. Stephanie always took my calls and always responded to calls in a timely manner. My wife and I attended the law office and met Stephanie and she was very accommodating. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Stephanie Funk for her great work and for providing updates. It is quite apparent that Stephanie Funk has great interpersonal skills and a strong work ethic. She is a consummate professional and was always courteous and polite. In conclusion, Stephani Funk resolved my problems and I truly believe Stephanie Funk represents the core values of Viloria, Oliphant, Oster & Aman L.L.P.

  • Stephanie Funk and her assistants have represented me for 7 months in what even the judge referred to as the most difficult case he’s seen in the state of Nevada. I could not even begin to tell you what this case involved, but let’s just say it encompassed just about every matter you can imagine. Stephanie worked tirelessly all hours of the day and night on this case preparing responses. She answered every question I had along the way and made sure I understood what was happening. She is very professional in the courtroom. She is also very personal and kindhearted and made me feel like she cared about me and the outcome and that I wasn’t just another case file on her desk. I highly recommend using Stephanie Funk as your attorney.

  • They took care of every aspect of my case from beginning to end.
    I was in a car accident in August 2018 and after realizing that their insurance company didn't have my best interest at hand, I decided that I needed to hire a lawyer to represent me and my interest. I did not want to hire a firm that I saw on TV, so I ask around on social media and this firm had a great reputation amongst my peers, so I decided to give them a call. I met with Shawn and he told me that he would take my case and that I no longer had to worry about that process. That is exactly what transpired over the past two years. They took care of every aspect of my case from beginning to end. I cannot thank Shawn and his group enough. I truly hope that I?m never in this situation again, but I would absolutely hire them again!

She negotiated a great outcome for me and I will be recommending her highly to anyone I know, that needs an excellent Attorney. Thanks, Stephanie!

  • Outstanding, ethical, very well educated in all aspects of criminal law, and trustworthy.

    If you are looking for an outstanding, ethical, very well educated in all aspects of criminal law, trustworthy attorney, who treats your case and you as an individual, than Tom Viloria is the one for you. I have nothing but praise for Mr. Viloria and the excellent job he did in representing me during the most tragic and difficult time in my life. He treated my case and me with the utmost respect and kindness, making sure I was very well educated in each step of the process. Never once did I experience a lack of communication or the inability to get a hold of him, which is very critical in going through a criminal case. I had and still have full and complete faith in his abilities and skill as a criminal attorney, this is very important quality, especially as the client, I was not familiar with the system in which I found myself in. I would highly recommend Tom Viloria to anyone facing criminal charges and/or have had criminal charges that need to be readdressed. Tom Viloria treats your case and you like you are the only thing that matters. He fights until a successful outcome is reached.

He has represented us in areas including general contract terms, easements, entitlements, lien laws, construction defect claims, and a number of other matters over the years. He is extremely responsive to our needs and I have found his approach to representing us to be very practical and without wasted effort. I would highly recommend Shawn and his team.

  • Achieved the best possible result for me, and my life and career are again intact.

    If you are charged with a crime, hiring the right criminal defense attorney is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. I know this from personal experience. Having Tom Viloria represent me was the best decision I ever made. When I was charged with a serious crime, I thought my life and my career were destroyed. Tom achieved the best possible result for me, and my life and career are again intact. I have a new appreciation for many things I once took for granted, and I will always be grateful to Tom for this.

    Tom has been a highly respected attorney in the Reno area for many years. He works with the finest group of lawyers in the area. His support staff are highly competent and courteous. I was born in Reno myself and have lived here my entire life. I have had experiences with many attorneys in this area. Let me tell you that Tom, and his team, are the best. Tom was an outstanding prosecutor, and the “go-to guy” at the Washoe County District Attorney’s office for many years. The most notorious and difficult cases were always assigned to him. His commitment, professionalism and dogged persistence has carried over into his private practice. His intimate knowledge of the prosecutor’s office is invaluable. He is highly respected by attorneys on the other side of his cases, and by the judges he appears before. He treats everyone with courtesy and respect. I also know this from personal experience. Tom’s writing skills are magnificent and the logic of his legal arguments is unassailable. In my case, every single rock was turned over to expose flaws in the State’s case. Every single rock was turned over to demonstrate how my statutory and constitutional rights were violated.

    Although his legal skills are no doubt formidable, the main reason why Tom is so highly respected is simply because he is honest and ethical. Tom Viloria took a personal interest in my case. He defended me to the best of his ability. If a judge or jury hears your case, they will see firsthand his heartfelt commitment, and it will affect their deliberation and their decision. Tom is also an outstanding civil attorney. I would trust Tom to handle virtually any type of case.

    Believe me, it is rare to find an attorney as fearless as Tom is. Most lawyers avoid the courtroom, and many criminal attorneys seek plea bargains to avoid risk and work. Not so with Tom. Tom has been in the courtroom fighting for his clients his entire legal career. He will always advise you what he believes is in your best interest, and not his interest. Not all lawyers are like this. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an attorney as unafraid of the courtroom as Tom Viloria is. After my experience, I often wonder how many people are sitting in jail or prison right now, their lives ruined, because they were not fortunate enough to have an attorney like Tom Viloria, and did not have the resources to fight the system.

    If this review was a sworn affidavit, every word would be the same. I sincerely hope that someone who reads this review decides to hire Tom because of it, and that their lives will be saved too.

  • An outstanding criminal attorney.

    Suspected of wrong-doing, at risk for being charged, and with a subsequent strong recommendation from a friend, I met with and retained Thomas Viloria to represent me. His extensive background as a criminal defense lawyer, preceded by a record of distinguished service as a prosecutor assigned to major cases in the office of the county district attorney, initially gave me confidence that I had made a good choice.

    In the course of our professional relationship I found Mr. Viloria to be knowledgeable in the laws and procedures applicable to my case. Numerous times during the many months that followed, Mr. Viloria met and effectively spoke with me and others (on my behalf), advising me and reporting developments, and (together with his able staff) preparing and transmitting vital documents promptly. Although Mr. Viloria and I were formerly unacquainted, and despite his perpetually busy schedule, it soon became apparent that Mr. Viloria’s interest in me and my case was sincere. When advisable, he referred me to competent professionals in other fields who proved to be most helpful. As we worked on my case, he repeatedly showed concern for the anxiety and stress that accompanied my situation by his responsiveness and warm, down-to-earth manner.

    I came to appreciate that I had placed myself in the hands of a highly intelligent, quick-thinking, articulate and self-confident advocate, known and respected in the legal community. Mr. Viloria’s expertise, dedication, perseverance, determination, enormous energy and hard work contributed immensely to the eventual positive outcome in the case. I consider myself extraordinarily fortunate to have met and engaged this consummate professional who demonstrated, throughout the duration, his resourcefulness, patience, thoughtful sensitivity, humor, interpersonal “people” skills and multiple talents in his service to me. I am happy to provide this unconditional and enthusiastic recommendation of Thomas Viloria, a truly accomplished counselor and gentleman and his awesome team.
