About Me

Mr. Logar graduated from the University of Arizona College of Law in 1961. Upon graduation he was appointed law clerk for the Nevada Supreme Court, and upon completion of his one year appointment, entered private practice with one of the most prestigious law firms in Reno, Nevada. In 1964 he established his own firm, with emphasis on family law, business entities, mining, real property, insurance defense and general civil litigation. He currently is an inactive member of the State Bar of Arizona.


 


In 1985 Mr. Logar founded the Family Law Section of the State Bar of Nevada. He was the first chairman of the executive counsel and served in that capacity for several years. After the family law section was up and running, Mr. Logar created a family law publication of the Family Law Section, called the Nevada Family Law Report. He was the executive editor and often submitted family law articles which appeared in that publication. This quarterly publication is widely circulated to not only the bench and bar but to law libraries as well. After several years of editorial supervision, the family law section voted Mr. Logar the publications editor emeritus. In addition, Mr. Logar was a co-editor and topic contributor to the Nevada Family Law Practice Manual.
