Do I need an attorney to handle an estate?

As experienced Florida probate, elder law, guardianship, and wills and trusts, lawyer and attorney, we understand the emotional issues that become involved in estate planning, advanced directives, guardianships, placing a loved one in a skilled nursing facility, and dealing with those probate matters associated with a loved one's death.

Our legal fees for representing you in Florida probate courts for the administration of a probate estate or a trust administration will depend on the facts and circumstances of your particular case. Often our probate, wills and trusts lawyers, elder law attorney, and guardianship lawyer, will work on a flat fee or fixed fee basis. Other times, a probate lawyer's or trust attorney's hourly rates are appropriate. In particular, if your probate administration is for the sole purpose of a real estate probate, i.,e, transferring title to real property, our Florida probate lawyers usually will work on a fixed fee basis, so that you will know from the beginning exactly what your total cost will be for the Florida probate process.  With all advance directives (
durable powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney and living wills, etc.), virtually all estate planning
(wills and trusts), and all Medicaid planning or the filing of the application for Medicaid benefits, we will work on a fixed fee basis so there are no surprises at the end.
