Prior to founding VASEK LAW, Brian Vasek was a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Michael P. Villani in the Eighth Judicial District Court of Nevada. Brian also handled hundreds of cases with the Clark County Public Defender and one of the largest criminal defense firms in the state. During that time, Brian personally resolved cases such as robbery, burglary, theft, child abuse, driving under the influence (DUI), battery domestic violence, solicitation, and possession of a controlled substance. Brian sought to provide each case the time, attention, and care it deserved to achieve the best result possible for each client. Brian founded VASEK LAW to provide this client-centered focus to a smaller group of persons facing the most serious of consequences personally and professionally.

Brian graduated from the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with Pro Bono Honors and the Dean's Award for his participation in the Community Service Committee, Partners in Pro Bono Program, Kids' Court School, the LACSN Educational Surrogate Parent Program, and as President of the Child Advocacy Law Association. Brian was also a Public Interest Fellow and member of the Nevada Law Journal. Brian received the Carl W. Tobias Excellence in Writing Award for his student note and publication. During law school, Brian served as a law clerk for the Clark County Public Defender, a Student-Attorney for the Juvenile Justice Clinic, and as a legislative extern during the 78th Regular Session of the Nevada Legislature.

Prior to law school, Brian graduated from the Ohio State University with a degree in Psychology and Criminology. During his time at Ohio State, Brian also provided inpatient cognitive and behavioral therapy for children suffering from abuse and neglect.
