Imagine you purchased a new home and have the opportunity to help your best childhood friend who has, like many, suffered from financial difficulty as a result of the economic downturn by giving her a five year lease with option to purchase your old house. Your friend becomes a home owner, you continue to enjoy the tax benefits of home ownership in the meantime; win-win. With nothing but faith...Read More
It seems that my blog was found by someone with the following question: If there is a Court order to produce documents by a certain date and you fail to do so what happens to you? Well, one thing I learned during my time in big law and in law school was that the answer to almost any legal question is usually, “It depends.” This one is no different.
Before I get into the substance, I have to be...Read More
Gearing up for a complex, urgent, matter can be such an adrenaline rush.
Early the other morning, I get a call from a broker friend about a referral. A homeowners’ association (HOA) has set a sale date for the foreclosure of its lien for unpaid assessments.

In my last blog, I wrote about a debt collector threatening to garnish your wages or accounts after judgment.

As far as burying on your own property goes, it looks as though in some of the smaller counties (less than 50,000) in Nevada, you may be able to inter a family member on your own property so long as...Read More
Opening my own law firm has really made me grateful for the time and effort I put into my education and my career over the years. I have had the luck of finding amazing mentors and friends along the way. So, while I have no intention of stealing the thunder from the Nevada Bar’s Transitioning Into Practice Program, this was my Transition Into Practice and it was quite a journey.

Maybe it was naive of me at the time, but when I decided I wanted to be a lawyer (which was pretty young, believe it or not), I really wanted to help people. I wasn’t sure what that meant back then, but I think I’m finally starting to understand what it means to me now. Just thought I’d share.
