Probate is sometimes able to be completed without issue. There are times, however, when it is necessary for one to bring a challenge during the process. These can include instances in which an executor is attempting to submit an invalid will, a trustee who is breaching their fiduciary duty, or an executor is failing to meet their obligations, etc. If you are an heir and you find yourself in such a situation it is important that you take immediate action to protect your interests. Our Las Vegas lawyer assists with challenges during the probate process. We pride ourselves on providing quality service and we look forward to speaking with you.

Attorney aggressively protecting the rights of heirs during a Las Vegas probate
There are a variety of issues which can arise after a loved one has passed away. Heirs or other individuals may have misappropriated property, an executor may be attempting to withhold funds or may otherwise be breaching their fiduciary duty, and more. Regardless of the type of issues which have arisen, an heir must understand they only have a limited amount of time in which they can bring a challenge to the probate process. If this timeframe is missed then one may be prohibited from receiving the inheritance they deserve. The amount of time in which one may bring a challenge will depend on the nature of the dispute and the facts of the case. It is, therefore, crucial that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure that you are protected throughout the process.

- Challenging a last will and testament
- Challenges to a living trust
- Issues regarding heir determination

Nikki will use your initial consultation to gain a complete understanding of the situation and audit all relevant estate documents.
