Wills and Estates Lawyer Jacksonville
Estate Planning Documents
We consider it our privilege to help you with important, cost-effective estate planning services. We recognize that you have a unique story that persists even after passing, and your estate plan is an integral part of your story. We endeavor to serve our clients, in person, to develop a plan that best suits their needs. We work well with CPA’s, investment advisors, and insurance specialists with whom our clients may already have established relationships.
Contacting us to arrange a personal consultation is the first step to developing your estate plan. The best plans do more than just directing how to leave your property, they also address funeral arrangements, the guardianship of children, and other important considerations. Plans can be specially tailored using Trusts if you wish to leave property or other financial resources to someone unskilled at managing money or to a minor. A Revocable Living Trust can also transfer property upon death and perhaps save the time and expense of probate. To protect your estate and your dignity at the end of life, you may also wish to consider various advanced health care directives.
Without advanced planning, a person risks leaving their property to the whim of changing Federal and State laws. Your property may not go to those you wish. Without your clear intentions stated in proper legal documents, the distribution of your property can lead to destructive family conflicts and possible litigation. We take the confusion out of basic estate planning and prepare legal documents that make your wishes clear to those you leave behind.
We offer competitive pricing on a variety of estate planning documents, including wills, revocable living trusts, healthcare surrogate designations, living wills, and various powers of attorney. Before drafting documents for your complete plan, you will sit down with our attorney to discuss your unique needs. For your convenience, we provide all witnesses and the Notary Public necessary to finalize your legal documents.
We appreciate the practical and emotional difficulty of losing a loved one and strive to take the anxiety out of the legal process as much as possible. When someone passes, we can help families and/or Florida Personal Representatives navigate the administration of the decedent’s Last Will & Testament through the Probate Court. This process can be complex and time-consuming, but often necessary to transfer legal title to property.
