Gov. Sandoval Names New General Counsel

Posted: Updated:

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval has tapped a veteran lawyer in the attorney general's office as his general counsel.

Sandoval on Tuesday announced the appointment of Michon Martin to his staff, effective April 29.

Martin replaces Lucas Foletta, who resigned abruptly Friday.

Martin is a chief deputy attorney general, serving as lead tobacco counsel in nationwide litigation. She also manages the Tobacco Enforcement Unit.

She's also been counsel to the Nevada Department of Public Safety, the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Department of Corrections.

Before joining the attorney general's office she was an assistant district attorney in San Francisco.

"Michon is a well-respected attorney with extensive experience in state government," Governor Brian Sandoval said.  "I am pleased that Michon has agreed to join my team and serve our fellow Nevadans."
