Andy Wolf Authors Chapter in Nevada Civil Practice Manual

  • January 17, 2017

Andrew N. Wolf (Andy) was selected by the State Bar of Nevada Publications Committee to contribute a chapter in the new Sixth Edition of the Nevada Civil Practice Manual, published November 2016, by Matthew Bender/Lexis-Nexis in partnership with the State Bar of Nevada.

Andy has completely rewritten Chapter 27: Fees, Costs and Interest  which details the recovery of attorney’s fees, litigation costs and interest by the successful party in a lawsuit. This important resource explains the intricacies of how and when attorney’s fees, costs and interest can be recovered in Nevada courts, whether it be through an attorney’s fee clause in a contract, as damages in a lawsuit, or as sanctions for frivolous or vexatious litigation conduct.

Nevada Civil Practice Manual Sixth EditionThe Nevada Civil Practice Manual guides attorneys in Nevada through virtually every civil procedure and practice with expert analysis and comprehensive discussion of the Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure as well as many statutory provisions relating to civil cases. Andy, a partner at Incline Law Group in Incline Village Nevada (Lake Tahoe), says, “Attorneys and judges across Nevada use this important practice guide for reference on a daily basis, and it is a real honor to have been selected as a contributor.”

December 22, 2015

Dear friends and clients,

As I transition from Partner to “Of Counsel” with Incline Law Group, LLP, I find myself reflecting about the forty-five years I have spent practicing law, first in California and the last 41 years in Incline Village.

Without qualification, I am grateful for the people I have worked with, for people are what makes life worth living. I am grateful for the good work I have been able to do and the resulting good that I have seen accomplished in our community.

During my legal career, I have had the pleasure of working with wonderful clients, attorneys and friends, for which I feel great satisfaction. I am particularly grateful for the last decade working with my partners at Incline Law Group, with whom I will continue to work until I fully retire fully. They are a wonderful group of attorneys with the highest ethical and professional standards, and they work hard providing legal clarity to our community.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity and privilege to provide legal service.

Please accept my best wishes for a joyous holiday season and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.

Take time to stop and smell the roses as time accelerates and the years go by.

John Rogers Transitions to “Of Counsel”

  • December 22, 2015

Effective December 31, 2015, Incline Law Group LLP’s founding partner, attorney John C. Rogers, will transition to “Of Counsel” at Incline Law Group. Sometime later, in 2016, John expects to fully retire after more than 45 years of service as an attorney.

John C Rogers - Incline Law Group“It has truly been an honor for me to practice law at Lake Tahoe and create a long-standing practice,” said John Rogers, Incline Law Group’s founding partner. “My career over the last 45 years and especially my partnership at Incline Law Group has been exciting at every turn and has afforded me the opportunity to work with some of the best lawyers and clients in the Lake Tahoe Basin and surrounding areas.”

In 1969 when John C. Rogers graduated from Boalt Hall School of Law (now known as UC Berkeley School of  Law), he never imagined that his law practice would flourish at one of the most beautiful places on earth, Lake Tahoe, for over 45 years. John began his legal practice in 1973 in King’s Beach, California, while preparing for and passing the Nevada Bar Exam. Early in 1974, John “hung out his shingle” in Incline Village on Southwood Boulevard, where he practiced for five years. In late 1979, over 36 years ago, he moved his practice to Incline Law Group’s present location at the corner of Village Boulevard and Incline Way. As Incline Village began to grow, John developed strong ties with real estate and title professionals, which translated into a thriving real property law practice. Additionally, many people and businesses were discovering the more friendly tax and business climate of Nevada, which created opportunities for service in both real estate and business law with both national and international clients.

The growth of the Nevada business community allowed John the opportunity to work with very capable and excellent lawyers over his career, leading to the current partnership, which is Incline Law Group, LLP. Today, Incline Law Group includes partners, Andrew (Andy) Wolf, who practices in the areas of real estate law, business law, litigation and probate; Cassell von Baeyer, who has been recognized for her practice in business, financing, development and real estate law, and Stacey Herhusky, who was named one of Nevada’s top family law attorneys in 2015. Incline Law Group is also proud to have Vera Struc (Of Counsel) and her estate planning practice and Jeremy Krenek, an associate attorney practicing general business, family, probate and real estate law as attorneys with the firm. All attorneys at Incline Law Group are licensed and practice law in both Nevada and California.

“John will be greatly missed when he retires,” said Andy Wolf, a partner at Incline Law Group, who has worked with John for almost two decades. “It is important to announce this news to our community. John is a role model for his professionalism, diligence, community service, and family values. In many ways, he was a pioneer, growing his law practice with his colleagues to meet the needs of the growing communities at Lake Tahoe. As a leading local business and real estate law practitioner, the breadth of his knowledge of the law and historical facts, and his meticulous care for his clients provide guidance to all of us. Incline Law Group is committed to carrying on John’s legacy and providing legal clarity for our clients, as we have for over 40 years.”
