The first question should be how much experience the attorney has in handling probate cases like yours. The next question should be how the attorney’s fees are calculated and whether it is negotiable. Nevada probate attorneys are governed by state law if they choose to be paid on a flat fee percentage, but attorneys are also permitted to accept your case on an hourly basis. Depending on the value of the Estate, an hourly basis could be a much better option for you and you want an attorney who is willing to discuss. You should also ask about costs. Many attorneys will advance all costs for the Estate, which can be quite a relief for the family. Our firm advances all costs and requires no retainer or up-front costs. We are paid at the end of the case when all work is done.
