Probate, Estate and Trust Administration Services for a range of needs

Our firm represents personal representatives, beneficiaries, and other interested parties in all aspects of the probate process. When a loved one has passed, you need the services of an attorney who is competent in estate administration matters and who has compassion to help you in a time of crisis.

The probate process is a tedious, time-consuming, and detailed process. There are numerous burdensome tasks to be performed, and any error on a task will cost the estate time and money. While Florida law requires that you hire an attorney to probate an estate, many attorneys will not complete all the tasks for you. We take the burden off our clients by performing all tasks in the probate process for them, thereby ensuring that all tasks are performed timely and correctly.

What is Probate?
In very general terms, probate is the process used to collect the assets of a decedent, to pay the decedent’s debts, and to distribute the assets to the decedent’s heirs. In Florida, that process is governed by the circuit courts, and it typically takes six to twelve months, although in some cases that time frame is shortened slightly or lengthened greatly.
