Do you need an experienced Nevada attorney? Drizin Law has been assisting clients with their probate and estate planning needs in Nevada for over 20 years. Whether you are probating the estate of a loved one, challenging the validity of a will or trust, or setting up your own Nevada Estate Planning documents, you want to rely on a firm that has the experience, dedication, and expertise to represent your financial interests.
With many types of law, you have the ability to change directions and make adjustments after the fact. You can renegotiate many legal matters, but not your estate plan or trust after you die. The right attorney will ensure your wishes are clear and concise, greatly reducing your chance for a trust or will contest.
If a loved one has died and you need a competent Nevada attorney, we will work with you to determine the quickest and most affordable process to probate the estate. The size of your Nevada Estate determines what type of probate process must be completed. We will work with you to determine not only the value of the assets owned by your loved one but also help you determine any outstanding liens and debts.

For small estates less than $25,000 ($100,000 if there is a surviving spouse), assets can be transferred with a Small Estate Affidavit. However, this process can’t be used to transfer real estate.
If the value of your loved one’s estate is $100,000 or less, assets may be able to be set aside without administration by court order. The real estate is valued at fair market value minus the outstanding mortgage balance at the date of the Decedent’s death. A Petition for Set Aside can be filed 30 days after the death of your loved one.
When the value of the estate is more than $100,000 but less than $300,000, the Nevada probate process commenced is known as a “summary administration”.
When your loved one’s estate exceeds $300,000, we will complete a general administration. This process is more time-consuming and can be complex. Having a competent and experienced Nevada attorney in Las Vegas throughout this process can assist you in saving time and money.
Sometimes, your loved one may have been a resident in another state but they owned assets such as Nevada real estate. You may need to complete an ancillary Nevada probate. We routinely work with out-of-state relatives to effectively transfer the real estate asset into the beneficiarys’ name. Working through email, skype, or phone calls, it’s not even necessary to travel to Nevada to handle the out-of-state probate. Our goal is to make the Nevada law processes as easy and affordable as possible.
