“I was born in New York but spent most of my life in the greater Los Angeles area. More than once as a child my family lived in Mexico, where I learned Spanish. I also served three years in the military, stationed in Germany. After that I lived several years in Pasadena before moving to Orange County where I got my Bachelor’s in political science while working for an international tire manufacturer based in Japan.”

Mr. Lafontaine graduated from University of California Irvine School of Law and moved to Las Vegas a couple of years later. He has been an active member of the legal community and has participated in several local bar events. His current legal practice includes criminal, domestic and personal injury law.

Recently, Mr. Lafontaine has developed an interest in playing the electric guitar and spends much of his free time practicing away. He also enjoys the outdoors and it is not unusual for him to pack up the car and head out to any one of our state’s many scenic destinations.
