Estate planning
Rick D. Williams can advise you on the best approach to your estate planning.  I thoroughly analyze your estate and strategize the best means of avoiding the expensive and time-consuming probate process, transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your children, supporting personal philanthropic causes and protecting your loved ones.  I can draft a will that reflects your desires and can help you to establish a revocable living trust that will be beneficial to you, your estate, and those you leave behind.

Rick D. Williams applies extensive knowledge about and experience before the Nevada probate courts to guide you through the complex process of probating a will.  I assist executors in all steps of the process, including:

  • Creating a plan of action to probate the estate fairly and expeditiously
  • Filing the will with the probate court in Nevada
  • Securing Letters Testamentary for the Personal Representative
  • Closing and opening bank accounts
  • Transferring assets from the deceased or his/her trust to the intended beneficiaries
  • Valuating the estate
  • Managing and liquidating assets as appropriate
  • Paying taxes and other debts
  • Locating beneficiaries
  • Hiring professionals and experts, when necessary
  • Defending challenges to actions of the Personal Representative

Probate disputes
When disputes occur between or among beneficiaries, we successfully represent your interests.  Rick D. Williams has the extensive knowledge necessary to challenge invalid wills or to defend valid wills against the improper assertions of dissatisfied beneficiaries or outsiders.  I am a skilled mediator and litigator who can negotiate among beneficiaries to preserve relationships or fastidiously pursue your rights in court, when appropriate.
