Estate Planning

Last Will & Testament – A Will that is validly executed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida will help to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes as opposed to the laws that apply when someone passes without a will.  This document is also important for the purpose of selecting individuals or entities you would desire to serve as guardians or trustees for your minor children.

Durable Power of Attorney – This legal document, if executed in accordance with State Law, can ensure that someone can act in your place to handle specified business, financial, and legal transactions in the event of mental incapacity or disability.  

Designation of Health Care Surrogate – This legal document, if executed in accordance with State law, can grant a specific individual with the power to make important medical decisions in your place if you are unable to make those decisions yourself.

Living Will – This legal document dictates what actions should be taken in the event of certain terminal medical conditions.  It can provide instructions as to one’s preferences or desires with respect to life-prolonging medical procedures that may artificially prolong the process of dying.  In order to be valid this legal document must be executed in accordance with the Laws of the State of Florida.
