Summary

We represent people hurt in car accidents, boat accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents. Four years ago we began a policy of charging only 25% instead of the usual one third (33.33%) or 35% or 40% to represent accident victims if there was a police report that blamed the other side and not them. This discount fee, which you don't pay unless you recover, has been a big success for us and our clients and results in them putting more money in their pockets than they would if they had signed up with a lawyer for the traditional higher fee. You save because we are not spending part of your fee on expensive billboards and tv ads. This discount fee does not increase if we have to file suit or try your case to get you fair compensation. We also represent victims in other injury cases such as defective products, fall cases, and swimming pool drownings or near drownings; however, in those cases we charge a 40% fee. We also offer low cost, discount fees for uncontested probate through out the state of Nevada. See our probate website, www.probatenevada.net for a detailed discussion of fees we charge for uncontested probates.

Q. In the state of Nevada is it illegal to rent out a house while it's in probate
A: There is no blanket prohibition against renting out a house in probate. Indeed, one of the problems with vacant houses is squatters can move in and in many jurisdictions, such as Las Vegas, the police will tell the personal rep. of the estate that the squatter is a civil matter and they need to get an eviction order which costs money and time and even after one squatter is evicted a new squatter can move in and start the process all over again. Once a personal representative is appoint by the Court the personal rep can rent the house. Before a personal rep is appointed, the presumed heirs may not have the legal authority to rent it out, but it may still be better if they do so, especially on a temporary basis.
Q. Is a Nevada DEED UPON DEATH document still required to go through Probate?
A: The Deed Upon Death was designed by the Nevada legislature to function like a payable on death bank account. The Deed Upon Death has to be filed with the County Recorder prior to the death of the grantor and then upon the death of the grantor, the grantee files an Affidavit of Death of Grantor along with a death certificate with the County Recorder. BUT, Nevada title insurance companies won't sell title insurance if the new grantee wants to sell the property until 18 months after the death of the grantor. So, in some cases, if the grantee wants to sell the property immediately they take the property thru probate.
Q. My mother was recently murdered she owned a house in Las Vegas, Nevada. She had no will. And I live in California
A: You will need to hire a Nevada lawyer to probate her estate. If she was married and her spouse was not the murderer there would be a split of her estate between her children and spouse unless her estate is less than $100,000 in which case it would probably all go to her spouse. If she was unmarried it would be split among her living children and the children of any deceased child of hers.
