Answered on Jul 18, 2017

If an estate was opened there would be a listing of the claim and the attorney. If they told you it was ready likely there were letters in her things about the case. If you know where the case was filed you can check the court dockets.

Q: Does an Executor need to file a public notice to creditors when a deceased person's liabilities are more than assets?

2 Answers | Asked in Probate for Nevada on
Answered on Jul 15, 2017

In most cases yes, but WHY would someone other than a creditor file to become executor if there were more debts than assets? You need to consult with a local probate attorney to insure you do this properly and ideally BEFORE you file anything with a court to insure you don't do anything you don't have to in the first place!

Q: If I request medical records through probate courT will creditors come after me and my family?

2 Answers | Asked in Probate for Nevada on
Answered on Jul 9, 2017

If you haven't personally signed to be responsible for such bills, no, there is no theory that would allow them to 'go after' you (for anything more than the cost of providing the records) because you ask for medical records.

Q: 2002 My Mother had a c-section and they FORGOT to take OUT the Cathether!!!!

1 Answer | Asked in Medical Malpractice for Nevada on
Answered on Jul 7, 2017

You are right and I suggest you start a campaign to get your state to change it's statute of limitations, but the problem is that when she went and they found the catheter,she knew there was an issue--maybe not a dialysis level issue but there was an issue. The clock started running. She didn't consult an attorney then and it's too late to do it now.There oughta be a law? You are right. But there wont be one if people like you and your mom don't organize to change the law.

Q: MY Mom passed and had a lawsuit going against the mesh co, so they want me to send probate paperwork

1 Answer | Asked in Probate for Nevada on
Answered on Jun 20, 2017

There are two possibilities. Either your Mom's estate needs to be probated even w/o considering the lawsuit in which case the lawyer you hire to probate the estate will know how to respond. However, if there would be no need to do a probate except for your Mom's lawsuit, then a probate will have to be opened up just to keep her lawsuit alive. Either the mesh attorneys will hire a Nevada lawyer such as myself to do this, or they will tell you it is your responsibility to do in which case you...

Q: Im thinking of starting a disney, marvel, harry potter and so on... themed escape room would that be ok ?

1 Answer | Asked in Copyright and Business Formation for Nevada on
Answered on Jun 15, 2017

For the purposes of this answer, I am assuming that you mean a business that operates recreational escape rooms:

It would be wise to seek the permission and a license for this use from the owners of those intellectual property assets. If a customer were to think that your escape room were endorsed by the companies that own those assets, you'd almost certainly be liable for trademark infringement.

1 Answer | Asked in Consumer Law, Real Estate Law and Probate for Nevada on

Sorry to disappoint, but since the timeshare in Nevada is considered real estate, the only procedure available is "Set Aside Without Administration." Most people will need a lawyer to do that.

Q: My mom passed away today. She left her home to my sister and me.

1 Answer | Asked in Probate for Nevada on
