Florida Probate & Estate Administration Lawyers
Proper probate and estate administration ensures the optimal benefit of all lifetime planning efforts and the minimization of income, estate and generation-skipping taxes which may apply at death.
Although many assume the tax and estate planning process ends at death, this is quite untrue. Surviving loved ones must make numerous choices and elections as part of the estate and trust settlement effort, and these can have a significant impact on the immediate and future tax obligations facing the estate and its beneficiaries.
It is also important that the parties carry out the probate and estate administration in accordance with the law to foreclose any potential creditor claims and challenges. The personal representative and trustee have significant duties and liabilities which exist to protect the interests of all of the beneficiaries and, in some cases, potential creditors. Failure to comply with the law can create liability and cause irreparable family strife. The Estate Planning & Tax Group is committed to the proper administration of estates and probates on behalf of its clients and their intended beneficiaries.
