Handling Probate, Estate and Trust Administration in Las Vegas

Serving Families in Las Vegas, Summerlin, Henderson and Clark County, Nevada

If you have recently lost a loved one, an experienced attorney can help you through the probate process. This can be a very complex and stressful process. You do not have to face it alone.

The Las Vegas probate attorneys at the law firm of Goldsmith & Guymon are available to help you.

With more than a decade of experience on our side, we know how to maneuver through the Nevada probate court system. We understand the value of listening to you and learning about your loved one's wishes, as well as the needs of you and your family. Our dedication to personal attention helps us fully understand your objectives in your probate or other elder law matter.

The Four Levels of Probate Administration

The complexity of probate administration tends to increase with the value of the estate. Our lawyers can serve your legal needs no matter how large or small the estate in question:

For estates under $20,000: Cases can be resolved through the use of affidavits for personal property. These cases may be completed very quickly, following the expiration of 40 days after the death of the loved one, so long as there is no real property.

For estates under $100,000: Cases can be resolved through the use of a set-aside proceeding. These cases may be resolved within three weeks, so long as the loved one has been deceased for 30 or more days. The set aside may be used for both personal and real property.

For estates under $200,000: Cases can be resolved through summary administration. These proceedings are more time consuming than a set aside but are shorter than a general administration.

For estates over $200,000: Cases can be resolved through general administration, which is the largest type of administration in Nevada.

Disputes During the Probate and Trust Administration Process

Our attorneys can represent your interests in litigation resulting from trust or will disputes - including trust or will contests - as well as allegations of mishandling of trusts and other estate disputes. If an estate distribution conflict features diverse assets and presents complex legal issues, we have the experience and skill to fight for you in court to pursue a positive outcome.

Trust Administration

Trust administration is a vital component to the completion and distribution of a loved one's inter vivos trust. We can assist you with the allocation of assets between trusts, noticing creditors, certificates of incumbency and successfully distributing the assets without further liability to creditors and the IRS.
