Oscar B Goodman
Mayor of Las Vegas

By Josh Fecht

Oscar B Goodman was elected the 19th Mayor of Las Vegas in June 1999 and began serving his second term in April 2003. Mayor Goodman was born in Philadelphia and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

He moved to Las Vegas in 1964 and soon became one of the city's premier criminal defense attorneys. He has been recognized as one of the ‘Fifteen Best Trial Lawyers in America’ by the National Law Journal and is listed annually in the publication 'Best Lawyers in America.'

Mayor Goodman is committed to preserving Las Vegas' status as the ‘Most Livable City in America’ (Federal Reserve Study, 1999), as well as ensuring that the city maintains its spot on Fortune Magazine's annual ranking of the ‘Top Ten Places for Business.’

"I raised a family in Las Vegas and built a successful law practice here," stated Mayor Goodman. "Now, I want my legacy to include building a community where future generations will have even more opportunities and advantages to live a prosperous life," he added.
