As an attorney I understand the confusion people face when contemplating the probate process. There can be far more questions than answers, especially given the intricacies of Florida probate law.
In our initial consultation my goal is to gather enough information to determine whether probate is even necessary. Whenever possible the first objective is to avoid probate altogether.
Second, if probate is required, my goal is to provide information and answers to your questions, help you evaluate the types of probate available to the estate, and to provide a flat-fee quote for the related attorney’s fees and costs.
I practice probate throughout Florida, and over nearly the last 23 years have handled cases in 54 of Florida’s 67 counties. I can do this because I represent only uncontested cases.
I do not take cases where it appears there may be serious disputes between parties. As long as the case does not have potential litigation issues, neither you nor I will probably need ever appear in court.
I've been a resident of Florida since 1974 and received my bachelor's degree in psychology in 1990 (Magna Cum Laude) from the University of South Florida, and my law degree from Stetson University in 1996. I am a past-president of the Citrus County Bar Association and a member of The Florida Bar's Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section.
