LAS VEGAS PROBATE ATTORNEYS

During a time of difficult grief, our compassionate attorneys will guide you through the complex process of probate.  If you have lost a loved one, knowing how to handle their financial and legal matters can be confusing. If your loved one passed away with or without a Will, or other estate-planning documents, probate may be necessary.

CALL FOR YOUR FREE CONSULTATION

The first step is to schedule a FREE consultation with one of our probate attorneys.  During this consultation, your attorney will guide you through what steps need to be taken to settle your loved one’s estate.  Be sure to bring along any estate-planning documents you have access to such as a Will, if possible.  Call us today at 702-515-1500 to setup your consultation.

WHAT IS PROBATE?

When a loved one passes away, his/her property must be legally transferred, creditors must be notified and accounts settled, and beneficiaries are entitled to any inheritance or gifts left to them.  These tasks are collectively known as “probate.”  If a loved one left behind a legally valid Will, but no Trust or other documents legally transferring title, probate typically must take place.  While a Will states the decedent’s wishes, it does not legally transfer title of assets, which is where probate comes into play.

HOW DO I AVOID PROBATE?

Many times clients ask how to protect their own family from probate.  The answer is to have a proper estate plan in place.  Today, the most common and typically easiest route is to have a Revocable Living Trust in place.  Our attorneys can help you understand the different methods available to you to ensure your loved ones do not have to endure probate due to your estate.  For more information, call our office at 702-515-1500.
