Probate and Trust Administration

We assist families with the legal process when a loved one passes away. We help make the probate process easier and more dignified. We have extensive experience in all aspects of probate, trust administration and succession of assets. We prepare and file the required petitions, inventories and accountings for the probate of estates and administration of trusts, ensuring that the decedent’s assets pass to his or her heirs and beneficiaries in a timely and efficient manner.

We advise our clients when a summary administration under Florida law is appropriate, saving them time and expense. We also clear title to real estate that may still be titled in the name of a decedent so that the heirs may sell it without undue delay and expense.

Our services include planning for the distribution of assets and post-mortem planning, including the use of disclaimers and family settlement agreements. For large estates we will arrange for preparation of Estate Tax Returns (Form 706) for the federal government.
