Good mechanic in Las Vegas needed

Well I am in need of a good diesel mechanic in Las vegas. We were on our way home to California and we didn't quite make it back. I believe the turbo blew and possibly a few other issues. Do you guys have any recommendations? I took it to a guy that was recommended by my gunsmith, that happens to live in Vegas, but they haven't touched it and I want to get it out of Sin city asap.

Update...

Defender is still sitting at a shop. No one will work on our truck. Any other suggestions in Vegas or California

I'm not super knowledgeable about the diesels. I'm know much more about the rover V8. I know they've worked on diesels at Land Rover Las Vegas. They have a shop truck (130) with a 300tdi and a diesel disco. Might be worth a shot.
