Writing a last will and testament is a vital part of estate planning. Your will lets you dictate who will benefit from your assets when you die instead of leaving it to the probate court to decide. Even if you think handling your estate will be straightforward, you might be surprised to find there are things you hadn’t considered. The experienced attorneys at Williams Starbuck are experts at drafting wills in Las Vegas. We’ll guide you through the process, answer all your questions, and ensure all of your assets and loved ones are taken care of the way you want.

What Wills in Las Vegas Can Do

Technically, no one needs a will. But if you die intestate–that is, without a will–the law decides who inherits your property and who becomes guardian to your minor children. After so many years of building your wealth and caring for your family, the last thing you want to do is leave everything in someone else’s hands. 

Working with Williams Starbuck, we can protect your loved ones and estate with a legally sound will. Together, we can create a will that 

  • Directs the distribution of your assets after your death. No matter how few or how many assets you have, you have the right to choose where they go after you pass away. 
  • Names of legal guardians for your minor children. Only a will can name guardians to care for minor children.
  • Specifies an executor to act as your personal representative. Your executor takes responsibility for wrapping up your estate after your passing. This person works with the probate court, protects assets, pays your debts, and distributes what remains to beneficiaries.
  • Helps keep the peace within your family. Clearly stating your wishes for the distribution of your estate can prevent legal battles later.
