Littler Partner Is Improving After Being Stabbed by Masked Robbers

The condition of a Littler Mendelson partner is improving after he was stabbed multiple times Friday during a robbery at his suburban Las Vegas home.

Patrick Hicks, the founding partner of Littler Mendelson’s Las Vegas and Reno offices, was originally reported in critical but stable condition, the Am Law Daily says, citing a report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Littler said in a statement provided to the Am Law Daily that Hicks “is on his way to making a full recovery.” Hicks’ family members are also doing well, the statement says. The Review-Journal article, which identified Hicks based on a neighbor’s account, said Hicks’ wife was at home during the attack but she was not injured.

Police told the Review-Journal that the robbery did not appear to be random. Four men wearing hoods and masks stole cash and jewelry from the home. Hicks lives in a gated community in Henderson.

News of the attack comes the same week as another law firm leader was shot in the garage of his Indiana home. The lawyer, David Kuker, leads the Fort Wayne office Faegre Baker Daniels. He was reported in serious condition on Tuesday. Police said the motive for the attack was unknown.
