HENDERSON, Nev., Oct. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — After over 18 years of service as a judge in Henderson, Nevada, the Honorable Douglas Hedger has announced his retirement from the bench. Judge Hedger’s last day in the judicial robes is October 4, 2021, after which he will devote his skills and experience to practicing law as a criminal defense attorney at Clear Counsel Law Group.
Judge Hedger’s experience with criminal law is deep. Beyond his normal responsibilities overseeing criminal cases as Municipal court judge, Hedger created and presided over the Assistance in Breaking the Cycle (ABC) Drug Court. Since 2008 that program helped many people get clean and sober and escape the cycle of substance abuse. The ABC court has been recognized nationally and has been used as a model for similar programs in other courts. He also continues to serve as an instructor for the National Drug Court Institute. Prior to serving as a judge, Hedger was a Chief Deputy Public Defender in Clark County.
Judge Hedger will bring his experience, wisdom, connections, and legal knowledge to Clear Counsel Law Group where he will protect the constitutional rights of those accused of a crime. His unique background makes him an ideal advocate in the criminal courts of Southern Nevada. He expects to serve the people of Clark County for many more years in this role and through educating the public on matters of safety, substance abuse, impaired driving, and the rights of citizens.
