Family Law

From divorce to child custody, we understand that legal issues involving your family can be difficult and stressful. The stakes are high and having an experienced attorney to guide you through the process and fighting for your rights is essential to your matter. At JK Nelson Law, we have experience in handling complex family law matters and can evaluate your case to provide you with the appropriate strategies, defenses, and insight to your case โ€“ all in an effort to work towards your best possible outcome. Whether it is settlement negotiations or an expansive trial, JK Nelson Law will fight for your rights and aim towards resolution as quickly as possible.

Probate/Estate Law

Losing a loved one is difficult enough without having to deal with the worry and stress of handling that loved oneโ€™s assets. In Nevada, managing the assets of a deceased individual typically occurs through a process called โ€œProbate Administrationโ€. Depending on the amount of assets and debts an individual has at the time of their death determines the depth and extent of the Probate Administration required to pass along the assets to the decedentโ€™s loved ones. At JK Nelson Law, we have handled Las Vegas Probate Administration for estates with a small bank account to over millions in assets. With our experience, JK Nelson Law can handle your loved oneโ€™s Probate Administration in a manner that ensures the process is as smooth as possible and that your loved oneโ€™s final wishes are honored in a timely manner.

Will/Living Wills/Trust

Having a will, living will, or trust is essential to ensure the transition of your assets to your loved ones when you pass away. Every individualโ€™s needs are unique, and J.K. Nelson Law can walk you through your needs to appropriately structure your estate planning.

Criminal Defense / DUI

From a simple speeding ticket, to DUI, to more serious charges, JK Nelson Law understands the serious financial, legal, and personal freedom repercussions that come with criminal charges. JK Nelson Law will walk through the elements of your case to discuss your best options from plea negotiations, to defenses, up to a jury trial. Let us represent you to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

Personal Injury / Car Accidents

Getting injured due to someone elseโ€™s carelessness is frustrating. Dealing with insurance companies or other parties that do not want to fairly compensate you for your injuries, or even lost wages, can add to the frustration. Whether you are dealing with an auto accident, a dog bite, a fall, or another difficult injury, JK Nelson Law will help you navigate the complex legal process to get the financial compensation that you deserve.

  • Respectful and Thorough
    ย ย ย ย  J.K. Nelson law and his staff are wonderful and very helpful. They helped me through one of the most trying legal times in my young life. They treated me with respect and always told me how my case was playing out good or bad news. Attorney Nelson himself was very thorough not to miss anything needed to help my case, and when we went to trial I knew he had done everything in his power to prove what we needed. I am to this day and everyday after so grateful [sic] for everything they did for me. Thank you J.K. Nelson Law.
