Robert Telles – Clark County Public Administrator

As Clark County Public Administrator, Rob Telles is an elected Officer entrusted to oversee the administration of the estates of persons deceased in Clark County who have no qualified person willing or able to administer. Mr. Telles was elected as Public Administrator and assumed the duties of this office on January 7, 2019.

Prior to his election to the office of the Clark County Public Administrator, Rob was the principal and founder at Accolade Law, a probate and estate planning law firm. Given Rob’s desire to make a greater difference in the community, Rob chose the opportunity to run for the office of the Public Administrator when the incumbent elected official chose to retire. Rob’s experience at Accolade Law gave Rob the qualifications that allowed him to hit the ground running when he entered into his office as the Clark County Public Administrator.

Rob has increased the efficiency of the office through new policies and procedures. Rob has furthered the mission of the office by speeding up the locating of family and the administration of estates. While the Public Administrator’s Office has been reduced to a minimum staff during the coronavirus pandemic response, the Public Administrator’s office has been able to continue safeguarding property for families.

After work and on the weekends, Rob enjoys spending his time with his family, his wonderful wife of nearly ten years and his three mostly well behaved children.
