Since 2008, the Law Offices of John Mangan, P.A. have been providing estate planning, probate, wills and trusts guidance in Stuart, Palm City, Port St Lucie, Jupiter and the surrounding area.

Estate planning, wills, trusts, and probate are the tools created to assure satisfactory wealth preservation, and proper distribution. They also protect your assets from creditor claims and excessive tax obligations. John Mangan, the Board Certified, Stuart estate planning lawyer, in one of the “Fastest Growing Law Firms in the United States,” has been applying these tools while carving uniquely designed estate plans for each client since 2008.

  • What will happen to your loved ones if something happens to you?
  • Have adequate provisions been made to ensure your family’s 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?

These are just some of the many questions that we help clients address in order to provide peace of mind and relief that comes with planning. 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.

People Change – Plans Change – Wealth Preservation Is a Constant

Estate planning must be fluid to adapt to the typical lifestyle changes that naturally occur over a lifetime.  A baby is born.  A family member passes on.  An inheritance is received.  A business is lost.  A home is bought.  Property is sold.  Our Board Certified Stuart estate planning lawyer takes a very different approach from what you might have come to expect. Our goal is to create lifelong relationships with each of our clients, to guide and manage your estate plan for the rest of your life.

    Estate Planning

    Estate planning is about more than your money.

    Estate planning is about the future of your family. And it’s about leaving a legacy on the world around you. It is important to create an estate plan that prioritizes wealth preservation. But it’s just as important to ensure that the fruits of your labor are smoothly passed to your spouse, children and grandchildren to enjoy and that you have the opportunity to support causes that you believe in. Wills and trusts are powerful tools. and when they are professionally created and administered, they provide asset protection as your estate passes through probate court.  At the Law Offices of John Mangan, P.A., our Martin County attorneys work with you to create an estate plan that enables you to relax knowing that your loved ones will be provided for if something were to happen to you.

    Probate is the legal process of satisfying creditor claims under life’s most difficult circumstances – the passing of a loved one. Without a professionally designed and executed will, without appropriate trusts, the process can be excruciating as a court-appointed stranger dissolves the possessions accumulated over a lifetime in order to satisfy creditors known and unknown, including the court-appointed executor's fees.

    Wills, 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.  Without a legally crafted will and the protection of professionally designed and created trusts, Florida intestacy laws will be invoked, intestate succession will be applied, and asset protection responsibility will often be placed by the probate court in the hands of an individual unknown to you or your family.

    Without a will, a complete stranger unknown to you or your family will be chosen by the probate court judge and paid by your estate to distribute your assets. Establishing a professionally created will and trust can alleviate the stresses on your family by placing that responsibility in the hands of the person of your choice.
