Teletha Zupan, Nevada State Bar No. 12660, is an associate attorney currently working for “Super Lawyer” Daniel Marks, who has taken on Shafik Hirji and son Shafik Brown as clients. In a bit of sarcasm, I’m labeling Teletha Zupan as Marks’s “crack associate” because in looking into her background, I’ve found that she graduated from a law school ranked #202 out of 208 (see graphic below).
Teletha Zupan’s name instantly stands out and was new to me, and that’s why I decided to do a little digging on her. I started to look into her background during a visit to the Clark County Courthouse, and I found some things that immediately raised raised red flags. I found that Zupan had a string of liens and releases filed against her (see the sample of court recordings of liens below; it’s just a small selection from among the 32 records associated with her name all showing liens that had been filed against her.

How can Teletha Zuppan (Nevada State Bar No. 12660), who is an officer of the court, appear before a judge to represent a citizen who has been named as a defendant in relation to some sort of criminal or civil misdeed all the while showing a blatant disregard for managing her own responsibilities? Let me ask you directly: Would you want someone like this going before and judge and/or jury to represent you in a court of law?
Some of these liens go back more than a decade. The records show that she finally made some progress earlier this year by paying off some of those delinquent bills. The graphic below shows examples of five references that document the release of liens from the timeframe of 2009-2017.
Is Zupan or Marks paying any attention to detail?
I guess that’s something we might expect from “Super Lawyer” Daniel Marks or someone like his associate who went to a law school ranked 202 out of 208 in the country, as I mentioned above. Teletha Zupan attended Western Michigan University’s Thomas M. Cooley Law School, which was ranked near the bottom of all law schools as shown here: Compare Law Schools (http://law-schools.startclass.com). I mean, at one end of the scale, you’ve got Yale, Harvard, Stanford and the University of Chicago; and at the other end, you’ve got law schools like Cooley, Charlotte, Whittier and Thomas Jefferson (don’t let that last name fool you, it’s in San Diego, not Virginia).
The above is my opinion, based on information I have personally uncovered. More to come on both Zupan and Marks as we wind our way through the legal system. Stay tuned.
