Careful planning protects your assets after your death and avoids significant delay and expense. In addition to ensuring your loved ones receive your assets at your passing as you intended, Estate Planning removes uncertainty regarding who will make health care decisions or pay your bills if you are unable. Through a series of documents, our attorneys will ensure your wishes are memorialized in a legally effective way. For example, a Will or Trust memorializes your decision regarding how your assets will be distributed after your death. A Durable Power of Attorney authorizes a designated person to execute legal documents on your behalf. A Living Will memorializes your decisions regarding end of life medical care. A Designation of Health Care Surrogate authorizes a designated person to make health care decisions for you if you are unable. A Declaration of Pre-Need Guardian memorializes your decisions for guardianship for you and your assets.
If you have documents that have not been modified in years or were created during a time when you did not reside in Florida, our estate planning attorneys can assist you by analyzing your situation, addressing your concerns and creating documents specifically suited to your needs. If you require a probate attorney, our probate services include Formal Administration and Summary Administration. We also provide probate and trust litigation services for contested matters.
