Governor Brian Sandoval today announced the appointment of Thomas Wayne Gregory of Genoa to the Ninth Judicial District Court vacancy. Gregory will replace Nevada Appeals Court Judge Michael Gibbons, an inaugural appointee to the newly created Nevada Court of Appeals. The selection was made following interviews with the three finalists who were recommended by the Nevada Commission on Judicial Selection.
“Thomas Gregory has established himself as a seasoned and well respected member of the legal community in northern Nevada. His commitment to the rule of law, reputation for integrity, and knowledge of Nevada law give me the confidence that he will be an outstanding judge,” said Governor Brian Sandoval.
A native Nevadan, Thomas Gregory graduated from Douglas High School. He earned a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California and his Juris Doctorate Degree from the McGeorge School of Law in 1994.
Following law school, Gregory was admitted to the Nevada State Bar and served as a law clerk for the Ninth Judicial District Court. He then worked for the Nevada State Public Defender’s Office in Carson City. Gregory’s experience also includes time as a Deputy District Attorney in White Pine County and Washoe County District Attorney’s Office. In 2003, Gregory opened a private practice where he gained experience in family law, civil law, and the juvenile justice system.
He returned to public service in 2007 to work as a Deputy District Attorney in Douglas County. He currently serves as the Chief Deputy District Attorney for the Criminal Division of the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office.
