Tampa Probate Lawyer
Our Tampa probate lawyers will work with you to determine the best steps to take in your estate planning and in handling your loved ones’ estates in the probate process. We understand that issues regarding the distribution of property when a person has died are extremely sensitive and can be very emotional. That is why we work hard to determine exactly what you want and try to obtain that outcome in the best manner for your situation.
We Will Help You Understand the Probate Process
According to the Florida courts, probate is a “court-supervised process for identifying and gather the assets of a deceased person, paying the decedent’s debts, and distributing the decedent’s assets to his or her beneficiaries.” If a person’s life ends before he or she does any estate planning, there are laws in place that dictate how the person’s estate will be handled. Our Tampa probate lawyers can help you through this process if one of your loved ones has died, or we can guide your family through it when you are gone. If you want more control over what happens to your property once you are gone, there are estate planning steps you can take, including writing a will and setting up various sorts of trusts. We can also help with these vital estate planning steps.
W Handle All of Your Tampa Probate Cases
Our attorneys provide a full suite of probate services. On the front end of the process, we can aid you with estate planning, including the writing of wills and the establishment of trusts. If, however, you are dealing with the probate of another person’s estate, we can help you challenge the probate process if necessary. This can include, but is not limited to:
- Litigating breaches of fiduciary duty;
- Making efforts to recover and discover assets;
- Challenging the deceased’s mental capacity at the time of last minute estate changes;
- Removing executors, trustees, or agents under power of attorney;
- Contesting trusts; and
- Contesting and Interpreting wills.
One Firm for All Your Needs
Some law firms only practice in one area of law. We have found, however, that we are better able to represent our clients by being willing and able to work in related areas of the law. That is why our Tampa probate lawyers also have experience handling business law and family law matters. All three of these areas of law regulate our property, our relationships, and how the two interact. When we handle all of these areas of law for you we are able to have a full understanding of your situation and are able to craft strategies for you that provide the best solution for all of your legal issues.
