January Nevada Lawyer


In recent years, Nevada has become a leading jurisdiction for trusts. The  January issue of Nevada Lawyer focuses on trusts and estates, with articles that will interest both those who focus on trust and estate fulltime, and those who don't specialize in the practice area.


Articles in this month's issue discuss Nevada's self-settled asset protection trusts, marital deduction planning, utilizing Nevada's decanting laws, ways in which former Californians can establish Nevada residency and the dangers of do-it-yourself estate planning. In addition, the January issue includes a feature article on the formation of Nevada's long-sought Court of Appeals.


Readers can find all of this content, without even leaving their office chairs, on the state bar of Nevada's website, where readers will also find a comprehensive archive of past issues.
