As experienced Florida probate and trust lawyer and attorney, we know how important it is for the probate estate administration process to be completed as soon as reasonably possible, and as efficiently as possible, regardless of whether the estate is simply to probate a deed, a straight forward last will and testament, an intestate estate (one without a will), or a large estate that is subject to the estate tax. We also have extensive experience in the handling of guardianships, and elder law matters such as preparing Medicaid spend down plans to obtain Medicaid benefits for those living in a skilled nursing facility.

Our Florida probate lawyer and trust attorney counsel our clients on each phase of the probate estate administration or the trust administration process and provides direction for each step that must be taken. Our Florida probate and trust lawyer and attorney promptly responds to all questions that are asked, and patiently provides our clients with a complete explanation of what needs to be done to comply with Florida probate law, Medicaid planning, guardianship, or the preparation and implementation of estate planning documents and advance directives, and why.
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.
