Probate and Trust Administration
It is never easy when a loved one passes away. When a friend or loved one dies, he or she may or may not leave specific instructions about what should happen with his or her property. Our commitment is to make this process as painless as possible for you and your family.
In our experience, probate is a very commonly misunderstood area of law. In a probate case, a court orders that the assets of a person who died be distributed to that person’s creditors and the family and friends he or she left behind. The “Personal Representative” (called the “executor” in some other states) is the person responsible for bringing the case before the court, for taking inventory of the decedent’s assets; for paying the decedent’s debts; and distributing the remaining assets to beneficiaries. Undertaking the duties of Personal Representative is a serious responsibility.
In many cases, the law requires you to retain an attorney to proceed with probate. We are committed to making probate as painless as possible for you and your family.
We are able to assist with all types of Florida probate, including formal administration, summary administration and ancillary administration.
