There have been changes in Guardianship, Probate, Trust and Elder Law. A Feb. 6 noon Joint Guardianship / Probate /Trust / Elder Law Bench/Bar at the Regional Justice Center in Courtroom 10D, will offer attorneys info to stay abreast of the new changes. Recent moves at the court have included two groups of judges who hear common cases: business, probate and guardianship, to be in closer proximity to each other. This new arrangement should facilitate workflow and improve efficiency for all those involved with these case types.

 There will be an update of case transfers and introduction of staff and overview of department procedures. News you can use will be presented including: announcements and appointed counsel/pro bono update from the Legal aid Center of Southern Nevada. Updates will be provided on probate, elder law and guardianship. The meeting will wrap up with a question and answer session. The next Bench Bar probate section meeting is Feb. 22.
