Jack DeGree is a Nevada-based trial attorney at Burg Simpson. Jack’s practice specializes in representing personal injury victims and those who have been subjected to insurance bad faith. Jack joined Burg Simpson in 2019, after having great success while working for several years on one of the nation’s most recognized and well-respected trial teams at Eglet Prince. Jack is a lifelong resident of Las Vegas, and is eager to help individuals injured in the State of Nevada and now faced with the unenviable task of taking on major corporations and large insurance companies in the litigation arena.
