Contrary to popular opinion, the area of law known as estate planning is beneficial to everyone, not just the extremely wealthy. Estate planning means to plan for not just an inevitable death, but also for potential incapacity, which affects an increasing percentage of the aging population as life expectancies continue to increase. (See this article for a great explanation on all the reasons why one needs an estate plan.) We believe that an effective estate plan is a comprehensive one, which might include a will, a trust, a durable power of attorney, advance healthcare directives, and other important documents. In larger and more complex estates, we work closely with you CPAs and financial advisers to ensure your estate plan reflects the goals of your financial plans as well.

“Sometimes life simply isn’t fair.” Sure. It’s a hard truth we’ve all been forced to recognize one way or another since we were children. However, just because life isn’t always fair doesn’t mean you have to suffer unnecessarily. If you’ve been injured, make sure you know your rights and get the help you deserve. Far too often, after an injury has occurred, clients succumb to a “I just have to suck it up” mentality… and far too often, they couldn’t be further from the truth. If you’re hurt, don’t wait. Call us and discuss your options. Call us at (904) 595-5290 to find out more.

Probate is the legal process by which the assets are distributed and debts paid upon the death of an individual. How those assets are distributed is dependent upon a number of factors, including Florida law and whether the individual died with or without a will. The probate process includes: proving to the court overseeing the estate that the will is valid; locating, identifying, and obtaining the deceased person’s property; having the property valued or appraised; paying outstanding debts of the deceased person; and distributing the remaining property to the beneficiaries.
