The 50-year-old attorney from Las Vegas is at the center of a lengthy federal investigation into possible corruption involving local construction defect litigations and homeowner associations. Nancy Quon began her career in Las Vegas as law office runner. She became a secretary, then a paralegal. After earning an undergraduate degree at UNLV, she took out a government loan and attended California Western School of Law in San Diego, in part because it had a fast-track trimester system that would enable her to finish her studies more quickly.
Quon’s 15 year attorney life quickly went from 60-70 hour work weeks winning litigation battles against formidable opponents to being held on a Legal 2000 (we in California call this a 5050) meaning that she was held for a psychiatric hold for a possible suicide pact with her then boyfriend former Metro cop William Ronald Webb. He has since been arrested on charges of conspiring to kill Quon. Turns out that Webb had set her home on fire with the intent of killing her.
From what I read about Quon, she is a single mother, now a grandmother and is the caretaker of her 49 year old brother who has battled B-cell leukemia since age 15 and who is currently undergoing chemotherapy. She sounds like one tough woman who has gone through quite a bit and it looks like she continues to do so. It looks imminent that she will be indicted by the feds for her alleged involvement in homeowner association and construction defect litigations in Las Vegas. Hopefully getting through the tough times in the past can help her get through whatever comes her way in the future.
