A Note from the issue Editor
bY RichARD D. WiLLiAmSoN, ESQ.
One of the most fundamental benefits that a bar publication should provide is substantive content that educates its readers and helps them advance their careers. Hopefully, this month’s issue of Nevada Lawyer will provide just that. First, Micah Echols provides “Navigating PostJudgment Motions in Nevada State Court,” which is not only a great primer on post-trial motions but also includes a short quiz, enabling readers to earn one unit of CLE credit and start their year out right. On another post-trial issue, members Joseph G. Went and Jenny L. Routheaux offer great insights on “Acquiring Attorneys’ Fees from an Adversary.” Next, “What Settlement Tools Have You Left Unused? Nevada’s Computation of Damages Rule,” an article from Michael C. Mills, encourages attorneys and judges to disclose and discuss damages at the outset of litigation. Finally, Phil Dabney and Bracken Longhurst authored “Arbitration: Advocacy Skills and Tactics,” an article on how members can translate traditional litigation skills into the arbitration arena. Please enjoy these articles and all of the other content in this issue. RichaRd d. Williamson is an attorney with the law firm of Robertson & Benevento. His practice primarily focuses on real estate law and civil litigation.

Thank you for not only including my Nemo in this month’s issue but putting him front and center! The pictures and the story were wonderful. Nemo is getting to be an old man (he’s over ten years old now) so it really means a lot to me that I have this story to add to our scrapbook of memories. I always enjoy reading NV Lawyer but this issue was extra special. Dawn R. miller, Esq. January 2012 Nevada Lawyer 5
