Greater Nevada Credit Union offering Apple Pay

Greater Nevada Credit Union members can now use Apple Pay with their GNCU debit cards to make payments at participating businesses who have contactless payment terminals. Greater Nevada is the first credit union headquartered in Nevada to offer this new payment option.

The free service allows members to use their iPhone or other compatible Apple device to pay for purchases without using their physical debit card or giving personal account information to a merchant or payment processor.

Account information is not stored on the Apple device, adding another layer of security if that device is stolen or lost.

To make a payment, members simply unlock their device with their fingerprint and hold it within a few inches of the payment terminal. Members can also use Apple Pay to make purchases at select sites online.

Carson City lawyer included on list of top attorneys

The National Academy of Family Law Attorneys recently published its list of nationally ranked family law attorneys, which included several Nevada lawyers, one in Carson City.

Ryan D. Russell of Carson City made the list, as well as Reno’s Kelli Anne Viloria, Kimberly Mae Surratt; Incline Village’s Stacey F. Herhusky; Henderson’s Rachel M. Jacobson; and Las Vegas’ Bradley Jon Hofland, Jeffrey S. Neeman, Rebecca L. Burton and Todd L. Moody.

The NAFLA recognizes the top family law attorneys in each state with the intent of helping consumers select well-qualified professionals when legal representation is needed.

Candidates must be licensed, in good standing with their local bar association and nominated by a licensed practicing attorney. In addition, attorneys must have achieved meaningful professional recognition and earned the respect of their clients and peers. In the final stage of the NAFLA’s 4 step selection process, the Board of Governors reviews the finalists and selects the official award recipients from each state. The rankings are independent and free from commercial influence.
