An expected inheritance can be an important part of your plans, affecting everything from being able to afford to buy a house to determining if and when you can retire. You cannot afford to walk away when obviously fraudulent changes to the will leave you without the assets you expect to inherit. However, before you retain an attorney to represent you in any type of estate litigation, make sure you know the legal fees and costs up front.
The Clark County Courts charge fixed fees for probate and guardianship actions, based on the type of case and the value of the estate. However, depending on the details of your situation, your attorney can incur other expenses, while conducting the necessary research to develop evidence for effective litigation. Moreover, attorney fees can vary significantly from one firm to the next.
Clearly, you do not want to pay $500 to litigate a case that earns you $1,000. However, estate litigation in Las Vegas, and elsewhere in Nevada, can be affordable when you know the fees up front — and when the fees represent only a small percentage of the value of your claim. A law firm with extensive experience litigating a wide variety of claims can accurately predict the expenses you can expect to incur for your case. The initial consultation is the time to discuss the anticipated costs, as well as the expected results, of your case. Without this information, you cannot make an educated decision on whether or not to proceed with the litigation.

We make sure you have a clear understanding of your anticipated costs and expected results, before we begin litigating your case. Contact us to learn your legal options and how we can help.
