Post Death Guidance And Services Throughout Florida

The death of a family member or loved one does not have to be the end of the estate planning process. It is a sad but pivotal moment in a family's emotional and financial well being. Well-thought-out post death estate planning is a sound investment that, in most cases, pays for itself many times over. Careful determination of assets capable of being transferred outside of probate while maintaining their access and marketability is a key issue, as are the income tax consequences of financial strategies implemented after a death in the family.

Assisting Families Through Times Of Transition

It is one thing to put a solid estate plan in place. It is another thing altogether to manage the postmortem estate administration process. Details and requirements quickly overwhelm most people without the help of a probate law attorney. Skillful legal advocacy is invaluable for personal representatives (executors) and families of the recently deceased.
