Dorothy Bunce began practicing law in 1978 as one of the
first 100 women admitted to practice law in Nevada. Dorothy was the youngest
Nevada attorney admitted that year. Dorothy graduated from the University
of Puget Sound School of Law in Tacoma, Washington in 1978 with a Juris
Doctor's degree. Dorothy started college at the age of 16, and
graduated from the University of Missouri, Kansas City in 1975 with a
Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech Communications.
Dorothy handled her first Nevada bankruptcy case in 1979 in Reno. When
Dorothy opened her law office in Las Vegas in 1999, she named her business
A Fresh Start to reflect her desire to help hard working people recover
from their financial.
Dorothy grew up on a small farm on Bainbridge Island, Washington, with
dairy cows, chickens, ducks and geese. To pay for her college education,
she kept a poodle "at stud" and babysat for neighborhood children
for 50 cents an hour.
