Probate & Trust Administration
We provide a comfortable atmosphere to handle some of the most difficult experiences in your life. The death of a loved one can be overwhelming. We help you understand the legal aspects of settling estates and transferring assets to the beneficiaries. This may be through the Florida Probate Code or under the Florida Trust Administration Laws or a combination of both, depending on the type of estate plan your loved one created. We guide you through the experience with compassion, dignity and expertise.
Occasionally, disputes arise in probate or during the administration of a trust. Unfortunately, these disputes often involve highly charged and emotional conflict between and among family members, beneficiaries and fiduciaries. Probate and trust litigation is a unique practice area, and may include will contests, will and trust construction, trust modification, breach of fiduciary duty, elective share litigation, removal or surcharge of a fiduciary, accountings, and creditor disputes. Should probate or trust litigation become necessary, we effectively represent our clients from initial demand, through alternative dispute resolution or trial, appeals and post-judgment administration. We stand ready to counsel and represent you throughout the litigation process.
