Probate & Estates Attorney in FL

Our Florida probate attorneys pull from years of experience to provide expert legal advice and counsel while listening to all of your concerns. Stress-free Florida living begins with being prepared for everything life throws at you by working with the best probate and estate attorneys in the state. It can be daunting to think about things like incapacity planning and transferring deeds or other personal property at the time of your passing, but our probate lawyers are here to support you and act on behalf of your best interest.

Probate involves the general process of passing on property after someone dies, which can be very complicated if there is no will. Estate planning is the process of preparing for the transfer of your assets to beneficiaries of your choosing. Without a plan in place, a court proceeding will determine the division of your estate based on the Florida laws of succession. We make each of these legal services clear and easy to follow. Our estate planning and probate litigation attorneys specialize in the following processes:

Asset Protection

Integral to avoiding complex issues, asset protection involves securing your property deeds and other assets against creditors, sudden judgements or even potential lawsuits.

Power of Attorney

A power of attorney is a legal document in which you appoint someone who can act on your behalf during certain legal or financial matters. These situations can include time limitations and other restrictions.

Guardianship

Selecting a guardian for your underage children and personal property in the event of your passing is an immense decision. That’s why it is important to carefully think about who you would like to take your place. You might want to consider appointing different individuals for different responsibilities.

Trusts

Several different types of trusts are available for a variety of purposes and circumstances. There are living or revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, a support trust for children, charitable trusts and more. These matters can be complex and require the assistance of a probate lawyer.

Living Wills

Living wills require careful consideration to avoid leaving grieving family members with the responsibility of identifying your final wishes. In the event of an unforeseen accident, incapacity planning designates an individual to carry out medical decisions on your behalf. It often includes healthcare directives, which document types of medical treatment you’d like to receive or avoid. A last will and testament reveals how assets should be divided among your beneficiaries.

Tax Planning

Tax planning typically involves succession planning, tax-exempt entities, and corporate transactions. Our probate attorneys provide legal counsel on gifting, advance planning, and charitable planning as well as mergers, acquisitions, real estate transactions and more.
