Estate Planning & Probate Attorneys
Estate planning is one of the most important steps you can take to protect and provide for your family and loved ones.

We custom tailor every estate plan to the unique needs of each client. We’ll take the time to sit down with you, understand your needs and desires, and explain how each component of your estate plan can benefit you.

Probate is the court-supervised process required to give effect to a will and dispose of the property in an estate that is not otherwise distributed through other means. Probate has a reputation for being a complicated, time-consuming process. With our guidance and support, probate can be completed faster and easier, with less expense to the estate and a speedier resolution for heirs and beneficiaries. Our Tampa probate attorneys help with both domiciliary proceedings when a Florida resident dies as well as ancillary proceedings when an individual dies outside of Florida while owning real property located in the state. We advise and assist estate representatives in the applicable and appropriate proceeding for the estate, including formal administration, summary administration, and disposition of personal property without administration.
Our elder care planning services help you plan and prepare for long-term care expenses such as nursing home care without financial exhaustion. With proper planning, you can afford the care you need for yourself or a loved one while still keeping your home and your savings, providing you with adequate living expenses and the ability to leave an inheritance despite the high cost of long-term care. Our Tampa elder care attorneys help families with elder care planning before it is needed and also provide urgent crisis planning when a family member needs immediate attention and the means to pay for care.
When a person starts to lose mental faculties due to age-related memory disorders or some other illness or injury, guardianship can help ensure that their personal healthcare and financial affairs are looked after responsibly. Our Tampa guardianship attorneys help people seeking guardianship for themselves or others through the process of petitioning the court and attending the court hearing so that the guardianship is crafted to meet the individual’s particular needs.
