Stout practices in the areas of commercial litigation and professional responsibility. Roberts practices in the areas of complex civil litigation, commercial and corporate law, business torts, professional responsibility and legal ethics. “We invest a significant amount of time in our associates,” said John Bailey, founder and managing partner of Bailey Kennedy. “We get to know them not only on a professional level, but also on a personal level. This is one of the reasons why our retention rate among employees is nearly one hundred percent.”
A veteran of the United States Air Force, Roberts received her Juris Doctorate degree from the William S. Boyd School of Law in the top ten percent of her class with a magna cum laude distinction. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Roger Williams University in 2004 with a summa cum laude designation.
Roberts received the CALI award while at the Boyd School of Law and was selected as the lead articles editor for the Nevada Law Journal from 2009-2010. Prior to law school, she served as a United States Air Force special investigator and an Arabic linguist. “Elena’s accomplishments, her passion for her country, law and family make her a great addition to the team here at Bailey Kennedy,” said Dennis Kennedy, shareholder at the firm.
Stout also received her Juris Doctorate degree from the William S. Boyd School of Law. She ranked in the top five percent of her class with a magna cum laude distinction. She received a Bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University in 1999 with a dual major in History and Women’s Studies.
Stout was the recipient of the Boyd School of Law’s Dean’s Award and CALI award.
