Ethical and Effective Legal
Maddox, Segerblom & Canepa

Robert C. Maddox, Esq.


Bob graduated with honors from Brown University in 1966 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations and received his law degree in 1970 from Harvard Law School.

Bob has been referred to as “the father of construction defect law in Nevada,” having played the lead role in the creation of Nevada’s first construction defect statute, Chapter 40 in 1995. NRS Chapter 40 gives Nevada homeowners and community associations the right to receive full compensation for faulty construction. He has worked exclusively as an unpaid lobbyist for Nevada community associations and homeowners in the Nevada State Legislature in every session since 1995.

Bob is frequently asked to lecture on legal issues facing community associations and homeowners, and has appeared on all major Nevada television networks in connection with his work to protect the people of Nevada from construction defects. He has been awarded an AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating given to any individual attorney in the United States. Bob is widely recognized by other attorneys and judges as a leading authority on Nevada community association and construction defect laws.

In 2002 the Justices of the Nevada Supreme Court named Bob a trustee of the Nevada Law Foundation, the entity that administers funds generated from lawyers’ trust accounts to persons who could not otherwise afford legal representation. Bob is also a lifetime colleague of the Nevada Law Foundation.

Bob was elected President of the Nevada Trial Lawyers Association in 1999 and he was chosen in 2000 as the Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Nevada Trial Lawyers Association. Under Bob’s leadership, his firm has recovered more that $200 Million on behalf of Nevadans victimized by faulty construction.

In 2004, Bob was honored as a Friend of Nevada’s Working Families by the AFL-CIO, for his longtime commitment to Nevada’s working families.

Bob Maddox is now semi-retired.  He enjoys hiking, biking, skiing, swimming, and traveling.

Frances Castelli

We used Maddox, Segerblom & Canepa to represent us in a legal suit re problems in construction on new properties that we purchased from a developer.

We were very pleased with the representation provided by this law firm. They were fully communicative, responsive to our questions and were very knowledgeable about the issues that required resolution. Even after we reached a resolution, they have been responsive in making sure to point us in the right direction for help with repairs that are required.

We would recommend them to others with similar issues that require legal help.

Atam & Margo Lalchandani

Maddox, Segerblom & Canepa did a FANTASTIC job in our construction defects case. I interacted with several people from their office throughout our 2 year litigation. Their staff is friendly, knowledgeable and always prompt about getting back to you when you have questions/comments/concerns. I especially enjoyed working with Darcy, Ardea, Eva, and Sandra. Being part of a lawsuit is no fun for anyone, but if you have to be a part of one, I can’t say enough positive things about this firm!

Victoria Fox

The law firm of Maddox, Segerblom, and Canepa were amazing to work with. They were thorough and always available for any questions we had. We worked a lot with Sandy who was always professional, friendly, always on time for appointments and just a great person to represent this firm. We have never been involved in a law suit before and they made it comfortable for us. We appreciate the hard work the lawyers and people who work for the firm did and would recommend them.
