law school sweetheart. Four years later, he joined the legal team of Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys. Vernon also currently serves as the responsible attorney for the firm’s California offices.
Vernon graduated from the University of California, at Berkeley where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Political Science before returning to San Diego to attend law school. Vernon attended and graduated from the University of San Diego School of Law with a Concentration in Business and Corporate law.
While in law school, Vernon was a member of the Black Law Students Association (BLSA) and

Professional and Personal Life
After graduating from law school, attorney Vernon Evans was offered a post-bar position at Higgs Fletcher & Mack, LLP, one of San Diego’s premier law firms, and he was offered an associate position after he passed the California Bar Exam. At Higgs, Vernon was part of the Business Litigation Team and the Transportation Team where he first got a taste for the personal injury practice area.
Representing companies against “the little guy” did not resonate with Vernon and he sought out
different opportunities. After moving on from Higgs, Vernon worked at Tax Resolution
Professionals (TRP) as a settlement specialist. During his time with TRP, Vernon helped his
clients settle more than $5,000,000.00 in past due debts owed to the IRS and various states.
When Vernon relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2017, he successfully passed the Nevada Bar Exam and continued to assist people that owed the IRS for back taxes, and found his true home as a personal injury attorney for plaintiffs.
In his spare time, Vernon enjoys working out, reading nonfiction books, spending time with his
wife and family, and watching THE Ohio State Buckeyes.

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so. – Favorite Quote of Lerner and Rowe –
