A Note From the Issue Editor
This month’s Nevada Lawyer magazine is dedicated to the topic of appellate practice. The articles in this issue will certainly “appeal” (pun intended) to both appellate as well as non-appellate practitioners. Bradley Richardson provides readers with a look into the probate appeals process and provides sage guidance regarding how to successfully appeal a probate decision. Justin Bustos and Anjali Webster examine Nevada Rule of Appellate Procedure (NRAP) 5 and the intersection of state law and federal jurisdiction. Micah Echols shares tips on how to draft attorney fee orders to withstand Nevada Supreme Court review. Notably, Echols’ article also provides readers with the opportunity to earn one of hour of CLE credit. Finally, this month’s Back Story features a brief interview with Nevada appellate lawyer Dan Polsenberg. In the article, he offers readers keen insights into the art of appellate practice. It is my hope that the articles in this issue will be of great benefit to you in your practice.
MICHAEL SAUNDERS is a senior deputy attorney general with the Nevada Attorney General’s Bureau of Consumer Protection.
