After obtaining a B.S. in accounting and an M.B.A. in taxation, and working as an accountant and enrolled agent, Harriet earned her Juris Doctorate in law at the University of Denver. At the time, Nevada had no law school, so she commuted from her home in Las Vegas. She worked part-time as a law clerk for the Denver Probate Court during her studies. After working for several of Nevada firms, Harriet Roland opened her own law practice in 1997, focusing in the areas of trust and estates, taxation, and elder law. She has served as chair of the Elder Law section of the Nevada State Bar, and on a select legislative committee which analyzed and amended the Nevada probate and trust laws. She has extensive technical experience in complex tax matters and business transactions, and can assist in issues involving income tax, real estate transactions, estate and gift tax, Nevada corporations and business entities, and partnerships.
Harriet focuses on the special needs of select clients who require highly personalized, private and select legal services relating to their estate planning, probate and trust administration concerns. Her firm's paralegals are specifically trained to assist clients in compiling asset inventories and in dealing with brokerages, transfer agents and financial institutions in order to transfer the assets to trusts, family partnerships and other estate planning entities.
Harriet is a licensed single engine pilot and holds a glider rating. She especially enjoys flying gliders throughout the Great Basin and Mojave desert. When she isn't flying, she can be found touring the back roads of Nevada with her GPS and her two dachshunds.
