Estate planning, wills, trusts, and probate are the tools created to assure fulfillment of your final wishes. What will happen to your loved ones if something happens to you? Have adequate provisions been made to ensure their financial security and make things as easy as possible for them? Who will handle your financial affairs or make medical decisions for you if you are unable to do so for yourself? Will the inheritances for adult children be protected from unwise spending habits or from the risk of losing half in a future divorce?

In our experience, proper planning typically provides a sense of comfort to clients who now have a blueprint in place for loved ones to follow in case something unfortunate were to happen. But the completion of a proper plan is just the start. Our Palm City trusts and estates lawyer takes a very different approach from what you might have come to expect.

    Estate planning is about the future of your family. And it’s about leaving a legacy on the world around you. It’s important to create an estate plan that protects your wealth.

    Probate, the legal process of satisfying creditor claims under life’s most difficult circumstances – the passing of a loved one, can be completed quickly and easily through creation of a solid estate plan and trusts that will protect your assets.

    Probate & Trusts

    Probate & Trust Administration

    When an individual passes away owning assets in his/her name, the individual’s estate must enter the probate process in the court system. The primary purpose of probate, from a legal perspective, is to satisfy creditor claims against the estate. Most estates owe money to someone at the time of the decedent’s death. Common examples of estate creditors include utility companies, healthcare providers, mortgage companies, and credit card companies.

    Palm City Trusts & Estates Attorney – Building Relationships

    One of the biggest benefits to working with a trusts and estates lawyer in Martin County who values relationship building with clients is the fact that your plan is much more likely to work as intended. You can have the perfect plan created today, but as you and your family mature, your financial picture changes, and tax laws change. Will that plan still be so perfect years from now? Perhaps not.

    By working with a lawyer who strives to build and maintain a close client relationship, the chances that the plan will work as intended, with appropriate updating when needed, are greatly increased. Our Palm City trusts and estates attorney works on a flat-fee basis in most cases for our planning services, agreed to ahead of time so that there are no surprises. We’ve thrown out the time clocks so you don’t have to be afraid to call or email us with a quick question. In fact, we encourage communication and dialogue with our clients, and our clients hear from us regularly.

    We provide a variety of services, including estate planning, asset protection planning, guardianship, firearms planning, probate administration, and trust administration. But all of our services can be summed up in a simple mission: We exist to help our clients preserve and protect their legacy and guide them and their loved ones through the “storms of life” when they arise. Please contact us to learn more about how we can help. We look forward to helping you preserve and protect your legacy and build a strong foundation for your loved ones.
