News from Jeffrey Burr

There are a lot of changes here at Jeffrey Burr.

First for the good news, we are excited to announce the addition of three new attorneys to our firm. They are Craig D. Burr, Collins Hunsaker and Corey Schmutz.

Craig is a long time Nevada attorney who was the head of our Probate and Guardianship Department for several years ending in 2005. He has decided to rejoin us to again lead our Probate and Guardianship Department.

Collins Hunsaker is a licensed Nevada attorney who obtained his Juris Doctor Degree and his Masters of Law in Taxation (L.L.M.) from Chapman University. Collins will be working as an Estate Planning Attorney.

Corey Schmutz is a licensed Nevada attorney who obtained his Juris Doctor Degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and his Masters of Law in Taxation (L.L.M.) from the University of San Diego. He is a former Judicial Extern to Wesley Yamashita, the Clark County Nevada Probate Commissioner. Corey will be working mainly in the Probate, Elder Law and Guardianship areas.

They are all quality individuals and have the background we expect our attorneys to have.

Now for other news, three of our attorneys, David M. Grant, Mark L. Dodds and Robert M. Morris have left the firm to start their own law firm. We thank them for their efforts here and wish them well in their new endeavor. All of their cases have been assigned to other competent attorneys at our firm.

One benefit you enjoy by selecting the firm of Jeffrey Burr is knowing that regardless of a transition in personnel, we will always have several experienced, qualified attorneys and a knowledgeable, friendly staff who will be here to assist you with your vital estate planning and probate needs.

As you may know, the firm of Jeffrey Burr has been serving the Southern Nevada community since 1981. We currently have 22 staff members and 9 attorneys – many of whom, in addition to being an attorney, are either a certified public accountant or have an advanced tax degree.

We thank all of our clients and referral sources for the confidence you have placed in us to meet your estate planning and probate needs. We look forward to continuing to provide exemplary services to our valued clients.
