Wills, Probate, and Estate Planning
Wills, Probates, and Estate Planning
While no one wants to think about death, our lawyers and staff will work with you with care and sensitivity to plan for your family’s future. With careful thought, taxes may be minimized, and your estate may be protected so that your spouse and your children will enjoy what you worked so hard to achieve. We will prepare a Will for you, to include all of your gifts and wishes. In some circumstances, a Trust may be advisable to protect your assets and provide for your family. We are also available to assist your Personal Representative to probate your will, to make sure your wishes are carried out.
There are also important decisions to be made about your life to assure that the quality of your life is maintained. Who will take care of your property if you are unable to? A Durable Power of Attorney for financial matters will assure that a person you trust will handle your financial affairs. Who will make medical decisions for you? A Power of Attorney for Healthcare will permit a family member or friend to work with your medical providers to make sure you receive proper care. Who will make sure that you are allowed to pass with dignity? The Living Will assures that the natural process of dying will not be needlessly prolonged.
We will be happy to work with you to design a plan that is best for your life and best for your family after you pass away. Our Will package includes your Will, a Florida Durable Power of Attorney for financial matters, a Florida Power of Attorney for Healthcare, and a “Living Will.” We will also discuss with you whether a Trust will be beneficial in your situation. If your loved one has passed away, we may assist your family with probate and making sure your loved one’s last wishes are carried out. Please contact us for a personalized consultation on your unique situation.
