Coral Springs Wills Attorney Helps Clients Establish a Fitting Legacy
Experienced Florida lawyer helps to preserve and transfer assets
Regardless of your age or financial holdings, creating an effective will is essential if you want to direct how your property will be distributed upon your death. Even if you believe that your estate plan will be fairly simple, there could be concerns that you have overlooked. Abby L. Steinberg, PA in Coral Springs has provided useful insight and assistance on wills and probate matters for more than 30 years. I go beyond the basics and help Florida clients create worthwhile legacies that reflect their values and intentions. My firm also revises existing testamentary documents when warranted and can ensure that your will complements other aspects of an overall estate plan.
Proven firm handles all aspects of preparing a last will and testament
In Florida, a legal will must be drafted by someone of sound mind who is at least 18 years old or an emancipated minor. Two witnesses must sign the document along with you, and my firm can have the document notarized so it is self-executing when the time comes. However, drafting a proper will entails much more than meeting the legal requirements. I’ll give you knowledgeable counsel on the best ways to:
- Distribute property — Though there are alternative methods of dispersing your property upon death, a will can cover anything that was not included in your other plans. I take great care to draft precise language to minimize the likelihood of a dispute.
- Adapt to changes — A will should be a living document. As your life and priorities change, it’s best to ensure that your estate plans change to match your current goals. My firm is here to help you analyze the existing terms of your will and implement any revisions you believe are warranted.
- Establish a legacy — If you’re looking to fund a charitable cause, establish a business succession plan or make any other type of special bequest, I can show you the best way to turn your ideas into reality.
Compassionate adviser assists parents with guardianship arrangements
Under Florida law, when a minor child’s parents are deceased, the court appoints a guardian to protect the child and make decisions regarding the youth’s legal interests, medical treatment and other important matters. It can be difficult for parents to contemplate such a situation, but mothers and fathers should think seriously about whom they’d prefer to raise their children if a tragedy occurs. By offering compassionate support and knowledge gained over three decades, I am able to offer parents guidance on some of the factors they might consider and help them prepare authoritative documents naming the person or person they believe should assume guardianship. Should you wish to create a means of meeting the financial needs of your son or daughter, I can identify options that fit your goals and circumstances.
Dedicated attorney counsels individuals and families on probate issues
While a will can serve as a farewell to your loved ones, its legal function is to disperse the property that you own at the time of your death. When creating a last will and testament, it’s critical to use unambiguous language so that estate administration is simple for the individual you choose to serve as your personal representative. No matter how complex the arrangements might be, I help testators write straightforward wills and assist executors and beneficiaries during probate proceedings.
