Probate Attorney for Yerington, NV

Also Serving Fernley, NV

If you need a probate attorney in Yerington, NV, or Fernley, NV, the Law Offices of Wayne A. Pederson can help. We provide experienced legal counsel for the probate process.

Why Do I Need a Probate Attorney?

The probate process establishes the validity of a will. A probate attorney (sometimes known as an estate lawyer or a trust lawyer) helps executors of the estate through the probate process. Through the process, they determine the estate’s value, determine beneficiaries, and transfer the estate to those beneficiaries.

The probate process is much simpler if the deceased has a written will. Probate lawyers can help living clients establish estate planning through wills and trusts. When there is a will, the estate typically goes through the probate process more quickly.

Even when the deceased has a will, the process can have complications. An experienced lawyer can help in those situations, including if a will is challenged. They may also:

  • Collect and manage life insurance
  • Advise on how to pay taxes and debts for the estate
  • Find and secure all assets
  • Get property appraised
  • Prepare and file court documents

If the deceased did not have a will, the probate lawyer will follow local state laws and regulations for the probate process. Laws for this situation vary widely from state to state, so working with an experienced attorney is the best way to navigate the process.
