Biography

Our firm has two practice areas: PERSONAL INJURY and PROBATE.

WHAT WE OFFER PROBATE CLIENTS: We are licensed in both California and Nevada and take uncontested probates in all Nevada counties and most California counties. On uncontested probates we offer substantial discounts from the statutory Nevada and California fees. (Please see probatenevada.net) We do some contested probates in Clark County, Nevada (Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, North Las Vegas, Pahrump).

WHAT WE OFFER PERSONAL INJURY CLIENTS: We represent people hurt in car accidents, boat accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents. Several years ago we began a policy of charging only 25% instead of the usual one third (33.33%) or 35% or 40% to represent accident victims if there was a police report that blamed the other side and not them. This discount fee, which you don't pay unless you recover, has been a big success for us and our clients and results in them putting more money in their pockets than they would if they had signed up with a lawyer for the traditional higher fee. You save because we are not spending part of your fee on expensive billboards and tv ads. This discount fee does not increase if we have to file suit or try your case to get you fair compensation. We also represent victims in other injury cases such as defective products, fall cases, and swimming pool drownings or near drownings; however, in those cases we charge a 40% fee.

Q. Need proba need a probate attorney for administrator of will in Fallon Nevada Churchill county
A: You should state the value of the estate. For real estate the value is what it would sell for--the Court accepts Zillow.com--minus the mortgage. The reason the value is important is because there are different probate procedures for different values estates. (If no real estate and value under $25,000 you can handle this by affidavit w/o a lawyer, if under $100,000 estate value with or without real estate, there is one procedure (Set Aside W/O Administration), if under $300,000, Summary Administration, if over $300,000 General Administration. Also, you state that you are an Administrator under the Will. Technically if the Will names you to serve, you are an Executor, not an Administrator. This matters because an Executor does not need to be a NV resident but an Administrator needs either to be a NV resident OR to work with a NV resident Co-Administrator. Finally, you should state if the there is any contest to the Will for the reason that a Las Vegas based attorney such as myself will be glad to do uncontested probates in any NV county, but if the probate is contested your are better off with a local attorney in that or a neighboring county who knows the judge(s) and the likely opposing counsel. ...

Q. My father died. his bank account which on all of them only assets. I’m only child. Mother dead. what to do?
A: You don't say what state your father was a resident of. The state he was a resident of when he died determines which state law controls the distribution of his assets that are NOT real estate. The details of probate law vary from state to state. If I understand your questions correctly, there is $37K which does not have a beneficiary or a joint owner. If he died a Nevada resident, you would hire a lawyer to file a Petition to Set Aside Estate Without Administration. In some other states you might be able to obtain that account by doing an Affidavit which you could probably do without hiring a lawyer.
Q. Can letters of administration in California be transferred or filed in Nevada instead of filing a new probate petition.
A: If your father owned real estate in Nevada, an ancillary Nevada probate must be opened. Real estate must always be probated in the state it is located in. If the Nevada property is bank accounts, then the California Letters will work.
