Miami Probate Attorney

Probate is a court-supervised process where a decedent's assets are identified, their debts are paid, and their assets are distributed to their beneficiaries. Probate is a necessary process to wrap up the decedent's financial affairs after his or her death, and therefore proper administration of the decedent's estate ensures that the decedent's creditors are paid off and certain procedures are correctly applied.

Any number of individuals may play a role in the probate process; these may include a personal representative or executor, a probate lawyer who provides legal advice to the personal representative throughout the probate process, those who file claims in the probate proceeding in regards to debts incurred by the decedent during his or her lifetime, the IRS, and interested beneficiaries.

As a Miami probate lawyer with over 30 years of experience, I can guide you through all aspects of the process and explain everything in terms that are easy to understand. I represent clients in:

Planning for Your Future

When you have worked hard your entire life to build wealth and own property, it's important to protect your wealth and your future. With estate planning, you can plan for the future and have peace of mind knowing that your loved ones will be taken care of when you pass. I have received the AV® Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, which is the highest rating given to an attorney for ethical conduct and legal ability. With over three decades of experience handling wills, trusts, guardianships, and health care advanced directives, I can provide you with the highest quality legal representation.

I offer reasonable fees and I am also bilingual, thereby offering my services in both English and Spanish to better accommodate my Spanish-speaking clientele.

Are you looking for guidance with an estate planning or probate matter?

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a personal representative, and what are they responsible for? A personal representative is a person you choose and declare in your will to administer your estate. They are responsible for the entire estate administration process, which includes filing tax returns, paying off debts, and distributing your property according to your will. It is a huge responsibility, and the person you choose as an executor must understand what is involved in the estate administration process.
