Florida elder law, estate planning and real estate attorney -- for peace of mind
Firm Overview (386) 672-4365
We all know how important "preventative maintenance" is for our homes,
cars, appliances, and especially our bodies (the most important machine
we own!). Have you
ever thought about preventative maintenance for your legal affairs?
The emotional and financial costs of guardianships, business disputes,
real estate deals "gone bad," probate, etc. can sap your energies,
destroy your peace of mind and ruin what you've worked a lifetime to
build. Yet these situations are largely avoidable.
With more than 30 years experience in estates, guardianships, real estate and business matters, I use that experience to focus on legal planning to help clients avoid the primary legal hurdles that face families: formal guardianships due to incompetency, probate upon death, and prolonged litigation on business break-ups. I provide advice to clients on asset protection generally and on Medicaid eligibility particularly.
The best way to maintain as much of your wealth as possible is by
good legal planning, whether it involves your business, estate or
Don't think your estate is not large enough to require planning; it
is more important to conserve smaller estates and businesses. It is
truly a gift of love to your family and friends.
Taking care of your legal matters shouldn't be stressful and
uncomfortable. You should have the opportunity to thoroughly understand
your options, ask questions, discuss alternatives and minimize your
costs. My staff and I work hard to make sure you have all the
information you need so you can make the best decisions for you, your
business and your family. Good planning anticipates potential problems,
addresses them, and allows for adjustments to new circumstances.
