Founding partner of Incline Law Group to retire in 2016

Special to the Bonanza

John C. Rogers founded Incline Law Group in 1973.

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Effective Dec. 31, 2015, Incline Law Group'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.

"It has truly been an honor for me to practice law at Lake Tahoe and create a long-standing practice," said Rogers. "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 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.

Rogers began his legal practice in 1973 in Kings Beach, while preparing for and passing the Nevada Bar Exam. Early in 1974, Rogers "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 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.

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 Wolf, 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, ad his meticulous care for his 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."
