Planning for Your Future

I work with clients to help them prepare:

  • Simple will: A will generally ensures that your belongings will be distributed as you see fit. Without one, your belongings will be distributed based on the state statutes. In addition, if you are a parent and want to designate a guardian for your child in the event of your untimely death, you can use this tool for that purpose. I work with clients to make sure that their wishes are documented and in place for the future.
  • Living will: This document can be used to indicate if you want to prolong life with artificial machinery. By having a living will in place, you can save your loved ones from difficult decisions about your care in the event of serious incapacitation.
  • Health care surrogate designation: This form is a power of attorney for medical decisions. It authorizes an individual to give consent for medical decisions.
  • Power of attorney (POA): A power of attorney is a tool that can be used to provide another individual with the power to make important decisions. We can discuss the type of POA that may be appropriate for your situation.

Florida Probate Lawyer: Probate and Ancillary Administration

In addition to working on wills and POAs, I work with clients to assist with probate administration. If you are the executor of a will, you have a great deal of responsibility. At times, individuals do not have the time or energy to handle probate. If you are burdened by the process, contact my law firm and I will assist with your probate administration.

In addition to Florida probate administration, I also handle ancillary administration. I represent individuals who are residents of another state who have bought and invested in Florida property. Often an attorney from his or her home state handles the probate of his or her property, but he or she needs a Florida attorney to handle the real estate issues here.
