Q: I need to hire representatives to guide and adjudicate probate for my father who passed on the 8 Dec. Do you help?
A: Our firm does uncontested probates at discounted rates through out Nevada if the are Set Asides, Summary Administration or General Administration. These terms are explained on our website, probatenevada.net
If the probate is contested (because family members are fighting) you want to hire a Reno lawyer if the estate will be probated in Reno.
In some cases, probate is not necessary. For example, if your father put his assets into a trust, or financial accounts with payable on death beneficiaries, or if real estate had a Transfer on Death deed recorded prior to his death.
If there is no real estate and his assets are no more than $25,000, his assets can be transferred with an Affidavit of Entitlement. Our firm does not help people do that but you can Google "Clark County Nevada probate court" and you will find their website which has this Affidavit in PDF or Word format and that affidavit will work for any Nevada County.
Finally, you apparently posted from Reno, NV, but just a heads up: Any real estate owned by your father must be probated--if probate is required, see above--in the state in which it is located. All other assets if requiring probate must be probated in the state he was a resident of at the time of passing.
