The attorney at Tyrell Law, PLLC are experienced in Nevada probate law. It is important to know who is responsible for handling the probate process. In most circumstances, the executor who is named in the will takes on this job. If there is no will, or the will fails to name an executor, the probate court names someone called an administrator to handle the process.
