What is Probate Law?

Probate is the judicial process whereby a will is “proved” in a court of law and accepted as a valid public document that is the last testament of the deceased. In other words, we make sure the estate is settled according to the law in the state of Florida based on, or in the absence of, a legal will.

After many years and thousands of cases, we have learned that the facts are always the same, but the specifics vary. There is usually an elderly person, and a predatory party who tries to take advantage of the loneliness and dependency of your aging relative. This abuse results in the probate litigation of that person’s estate after they have passed on. In probate litigation, we address:

  • Florida probate avoidance,
  • Will and trust preparation,
  • Avoiding Florida Will Contests, and
  • Florida Will disputes.

What We Do

For the last 20 years, we’ve been helping clients manage the affairs of deceased relatives in the courts of Florida.

Reading wills and trusts, and legally transferring assets to surviving relatives through the probate court system is our specialty. We’re experts when it comes to litigating legal disputes regarding wills, trusts, and the property of deceased persons. Our representation will assure that your loved ones are protected in your absence.

How We Work

We assist individuals with legal and court proceedings to transfer assets at death. We review wills and trusts after death and help you to smoothly pass assets from one generation to the next.

We also file petitions in the probate court system to pass on property at death. We help our clients sort out difficult issues involved and represent individuals in legal disputes such as will contests, trust disputes, creditor issues, and all other legal matters concerning the property of the deceased.

Additionally, we represent children or other heirs or beneficiaries of prior wills who believe they were unfairly excluded from their inheritance rights after the death of a loved one.
