Ian Estrada is a founding partner at Cloward Trial Lawyers. He was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. After graduating from UCLA, Ian attended Loyola Law School, Los Angeles where he earned his Juris Doctorate in 2009. Ian moved to Las Vegas in 2011 to work for a prestigious defense firm where he represented national insurance companies in personal injury lawsuits.
Having seen first-hand how hard insurance companies work to prevent injured people from obtaining fair compensation for their injuries, Ian decided to change sides so that he could represent real people, not large corporations and insurance companies. He joined Nevada’s largest personal injury firm in 2017 where he excelled and quickly began working on the firm’s largest cases. In 2020, Ian was second-chair to Ben Cloward in a wrongful death case that resulted in a $38 million jury verdict. Ian then joined Ben Cloward’s trial team full time and has since helped the team obtain numerous multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements.
Ian is proud to represent his clients — people whose lives were turned upside down in an instant — in the legal process. He has represented clients in cases involving dangerous premises, defective products, trucking cases, motor vehicle collisions, fires, dog bites, and a variety of other personal injury matters. He is honored to now use his experience as a defense attorney to help injury victims obtain full compensation for their injuries.
Ian is licensed in Nevada, California, and Washington. In his spare time, he and his wife enjoy traveling to any place that is dog friendly.
