Efficient, Effective Representation For Probate And Estate Administration

Probate and estate administration can be a complex and difficult process, particularly when a person has not taken the time to create an estate plan. If your loved one left a valid will, the probate process can be less complicated and, in many instances, streamlined. Unfortunately, many people avoid estate planning and leave their family with the responsibility of taking care of their final affairs after they are gone without much, if any, guidance about intent and subject to a complex and expensive process. Without a will, Nevada's intestacy laws dictate how a deceased person's estate will be divided and distributed. With a properly drafted will, the steps of the probate process can be simplified. However, the probate process must be completed properly to ensure your loved one's property is distributed and their final affairs, including taxes, are settled.

Robert Parke, LLC, in Reno provides seasoned probate and estate administration for clients throughout northern Nevada.

Probate and Estate Administration for Business Owners

Whether your loved one's business was a corporation, limited liability company, partnership or sole proprietorship, working with an experienced attorney can help sort out the complex probate process. If sufficient estate planning has not been done and if a court must establish who inherits a person's business, more time may be needed to get through the probate process.

A business owner's interests in business property may include rights to real estate, a variety of tangible personal property and/or intangible assets. Rights to patents, licenses, software, trade secrets, business equipment and machinery, lease agreements, buy-sell agreements and jointly-owned property are common matters to address upon a business owner's death.

Depending on the nature of the business and if adequate provisions are not made in the business owner's estate plan and in the governing documents and agreements for the business, the court may have to determine relevant questions and direct things such as the payment of business debts and the management of the business for paying employees, vendors, landlords, tax authorities and others. The judge may also order the liquidation of the business to pay debts and ultimately close the business.

If your loved one recently passed and owned a business, call attorney J. Robert Parke at 775-391-6494. He has the experience in business and probate matters needed to help guide you through the probate process.
