Wills, Trusts & Probate

The O’Mara Law Firm offers comprehensive estate planning services especially on wills, trust and probate. David is experienced in counseling clients about different estate planning options including:

  • Living trusts (Family trusts)
  • Testamentary trusts

Advance estate planning can avoid the need for probating your assets after you pass.  In Nevada, probate is required when someone dies in owning assets with a value more than $20,000 that are not held in trust or when proper arrangements have not been made to automatically transfer title to someone else (such as when real property is owned in joint tenancy with rights or survivorship or accounts include a “payable on death” designation).  The O’Mara Law Firm can help advise you about what estate planning option will best help achieve your wishes for how your property is distributed after you pass.

If your loved one dies leaving a will, you should consult the O’Mara Law Firm to determine whether the will must be probated under your particular circumstances.  The total value of the assets owned at the time of death affects whether and what type of probate may be required.

David is experienced at guiding clients through the probate process, which can include will disputes, asset sales, payment of or disputes over creditor claims, and transferring title of real property, bank accounts, and vehicles from the deceased to the beneficiaries.
