As a Miami probate attorney I have experience with probate administration cases in Miami-Dade and Broward County, and all throughout Florida. Since I deal with a lot of the issues that regularly appear throughout the probate process, I help you create an estate plan that helps you avoid probate court.
Although this may sound counter-intuitive, I believe it is in your best interest, in most situations, to avoid Florida probate court. The probate system is made to be slow and rigorous. Therefore, when I play my estate planning attorney role with you, the goals and objectives are to avoid probate court, protect your interest and the interest of your beneficiaries, protect your assets, and minimize any transfer tax.
The one thing most people don’t foresee is that it is more expensive to not have an estate plan. As a Miami probate attorney, I can tell you that is far more costly to your estate and your beneficiaries when you don’t have an estate plan in place. Most Miami probate lawyers charge either a percentage of your assets or an hourly fee to help you with the Florida probate administration.
