Lawyer James Smyth Appointed to Blind Center of Nevada Board of Directors

LAS VEGAS – James (Jim) Smyth, a partner with the Nevada law firm Kummer Kaempfer Bonner Renshaw & Ferrario (Kummer Kaempfer), has been appointed to the Blind Center of Nevada board of directors where he will assist the nonprofit in expanding public awareness, community involvement and employment opportunities for its clients.

The appointment follows more than a year and half of Smyth’s pro bono services to the nonprofit. Kummer Kaempfer has provided complimentary legal advice to the Blind Center of Nevada for several years as a result of long-standing relationships between leaders of both organizations.

“The Blind Center has been strengthened by Jim’s legal advice and expertise due to the generosity of Kummer Kaempfer,” said Ronnie Wilson, president and chief executive officer of the Blind Center of Nevada. “The Blind Center will now benefit from his increased commitment to help serve the often over looked community of people dealing with vision loss. We are honored to welcome Jim as he joins our dedicated board of community-minded business leaders. As the remarkable Helen Keller once said, ‘Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.’”

The Blind Center of Nevada offers programs and activities, both on and off-site, that encourage independence and improve the quality of life for individuals with visual limitations.
Smyth is a native Nevadan who began as an associate at Kummer Kaempfer after being admitted to the State Bar of Nevada in 1997. His practice encompasses primarily construction, commercial litigation, real estate and land use and zoning entitlement litigation matters.
The Blind Center of Nevada is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting blind and visually impaired persons of all ages in reaching their highest physical, social, intellectual, and economic potential.

Kummer Kaempfer is a prominent force in Nevada, serving local, regional, national and international clients in the real estate development, hospitality, gaming, manufacturing, service, high-technology, and energy and utilities industries. Founded in 1994, Kummer Kaempfer is one of Nevada’s largest law firms, specializing in complex corporate transactions, federal and state securities matters, commercial litigation, zoning and land use and regulatory law.

Smyth has a personal reason for choosing the Blind Center of Nevada for his volunteer work. His mother was involved in an accident that caused her to be come blind. Since, she has become a member at the Blind Center of Nevada
