From 2010 until 2020, Mr. Sparks remained in San Diego where he served as a Vice President and Corporate Counsel for a national commercial real estate management and investment company.
An experienced trial attorney, Mr. Sparks has represented multi-national businesses and insurers, and has served as primary premises liability counsel for several major Las Vegas casino-hotel companies.
