We believe that a Jacksonville estate planning lawyer, elder law attorney, and counselor should enable an individual to control their assets while alive and protect their assets for use if they become incapacitated.  Upon your death, a properly drafted estate plan and asset protection plan should provide a smooth, worry free ability for your beneficiaries to receive your asset in the manner you pre-define.  This process should protect your beneficiaries from situations where your estate may be placed at risk to the beneficiary's creditors.

While estate planning lawyers and elder law lawyers can create very complex documents, our Jacksonville attorney's goals are to make the decisions easy, by proving you with our knowledge and understanding of an estate plan and options that enable you and your family to achieve your estate planning goals.

The first step in creating an estate plan is for us to have an understanding of your assets, risks, and objectives.  Once our lawyers receive this information, our estate planning attorneys can design an estate plan that can achieve your goals.  In some cases and estate plan may involve a Florida will along with medical and financial powers of attorneys. For others additional estate planning documents include special deeds, and trusts.  Our estate planning lawyers have created very special documents for almost every need.

For those who need documents fast, we are very responsive and out typical start to finish time for an estate plan is 1 week or less.  In \emergencies, our lawyers may even be able to have documents ready in 24 hours.

We focus on providing individualized estate planning documents that are designed to meet your goals and objectives at reasonable prices.  As our clients get older, we talk with them about the importance of including planning to protect their estates from loss in the unfortunate event that Medicaid issues arise.  By mixing estate planning with elder law, we can create an estate plan that protects your assets from loss in the event that care is needed.  One of our goals in creating your estate planning documents is to avoid probate and court supervision and delay in distributing assets to your chosen beneficiaries.
