Estate Planning Probate & Guardianship

At Garman Turner Gordon, we believe that estate planning is for everyone. Our team can help design and implement a comprehensive estate plan – utilizing various trusts, wills and other techniques – for estates of all sizes including upwards of $50 million and more. Estate planning can be confusing or intimidating when you’re not sure what documents you really need. The good news is that working with an experienced estate planning attorney can help make the process much simpler.

We provide a full range of services for your estate planning needs including, but not limited to:

  • Wills
  • Revocable trusts
  • Healthcare directives and powers of attorney
  • Financial durable powers of attorney
  • Irrevocable trusts
  • Asset protection planning
  • Special needs trusts
  • Life insurance trusts
  • Limited liability companies
  • Family limited partnerships
  • Gift planning
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Trusts for grandchildren

Our team routinely works with families from all over Nevada – and across the country – to probate the estates of loved ones. We can assist with lodging the will for probate, noticing creditors, preparing the inventory, marshalling assets, selling real estate, and closing out the estate. Probate can be a complicated process which is often amplified during the grief of losing someone you loved. Let us help guide you through the process.

In addition, our team has vast experience in assisting clients in obtaining, managing, and challenging guardianships over both adults and minors. We work closely with families of minor children who need to go through the probate process and guardianship proceedings simultaneously following the untimely passing of a parent. We can also assist families of adults to obtain and manage guardianships when the need arises due to illness or injury.
From time to time, families may find themselves in the midst of a dispute after the loss of a loved one. Our team can help you navigate the complicated process of contested matters in the realm of estate, trust, probate and guardianship. We have successfully negotiated the resolution of contested trust and estate matters – involving millions of dollars – prior to trial.
We help resolve controversies over:

  • Fiduciary mismanagement
  • Administration of wills and estates
  • Challenges to wills, trusts, and probate
  • Trust administration

Given the complex nature of the probate and trust administration process, we also provide valuable guidance for families throughout the proceedings. This includes distributing assets, negotiating and paying liabilities, paying taxes, attending probate court proceedings, accessing safety deposit boxes, arranging sale of real property, and carrying out the deceased’s other wishes.

Protecting everything you’ve worked so hard for — and the people whom you love — is at the heart of our Estate Planning, Probate & Guardianship Practice Group.
