Business Profile: Keeping it in the Family – Spees & Spees Law Firm

October 7, 2021 | Kayla Anderson

Frank and Judy Spees have been attorneys with a focus in estate planning in Incline Village for more than 40 years, and now their daughter Kristen is next in line to take over succession planning for their clients.

“Our primary focus of what we do is estate planning, wills, trusts, deed work, and powers of attorney,” Judy says.

When Kristen graduated from Incline High School, she earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Hawaii, Manoa, focusing on political science and then received her JD degree from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego. “I practice estate planning like my parents. They encouraged me to go to law school and now I am licensed in Nevada, California, and Hawaii.

It has been beneficial working with them because they have so much to teach me from their years of experience. I have been able to help them with technological advances by updating websites, fillable forms, and meeting clients online. Now, this is a job that can be done from anywhere in the world,” Kristen says. Her brother Justin is also a paralegal and investment advisor.

Business Profile: Mountain Workspace

October 6, 2021 | Ashleigh (Easley) Goodwin

Mountain Workspace is a co-working community in Incline Village, Nevada, featuring private offices, dedicated workstations, open workspace, mail delivery, and a conference room for rent. Click here to see more information.

At the close of September we introduced IVCBA@Mountain Workspace. A community within a community, what could be more appropriate than that for IVCBA’s home base? As you drive down Tahoe Blvd you’ve probably noted the luscious, well maintained garden decorating the street side crafted by Around Tahoe Tours. Maybe you’ve even seen Roger Kahn, owner, watering, as he does every morning. The quaint presentation doesn’t stop there. The facility is staffed from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.

Mountain Workspace offers far more than a quiet place to work while on vacation. There are dedicated work spaces ranging from a cubicle to your own secure office space. 

“Our goal is to suit the needs of the community by providing a location to work for entrepreneurs, freelancers, remote employees and anyone needing a place to set up shop for the day, week, month or longer”. 

Working from home provides certain amenities that you wouldn’t typically see in a corporate office space. With a mind for the region, it’s active visitors and residents, Roger had the space strategically fitted with several bathrooms, phone booths, and break areas. You can work the morning away, take in an afternoon hike, followed by a refreshing shower and be back at your desk in under an hour without driving home. The kitchen is complete with your normal amenities; fridge, microwave, and coffee machine. In addition there is a full stock of kitchenware to suit a variety of personal and business needs. Lunch meetings are a breeze here in the tech savvy conference room.
