Disagreements among family members concerning the distribution of property or the decedent’s true intentions can be emotionally difficult. We balance the financial aspects of litigation with the long-term personal issues that can motivate familial litigants.

The attorneys at GRANT LAW CORPORATION  will counsel the personal representative (executor) of the estate and furnish skilled probate services across the entirety of the probate process, such as:

  • File the necessary petition with the Court to name a personal representative of the estate.
  • Initiate official requests for Federal tax ID numbers for the estate or trust.
  • Conduct a thorough valuation of the inventoried assets and determine the estate’s debts.
  • Notify creditors and other relevant parties of said probate action.
  • Evaluate potential for any type of estate-related litigation.
  • Advise personal representatives of their obligatory actions to fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities.
  • Disburse payment for any debts and taxes to appropriate parties.
  • Properly distribute estate assets, as instructed by the deceased.
  • Finalize administration of the estate and file such required documentation with the Court.
  • In the State of Florida, for legal, procedural and administrative purposes, there are different types of probate.

The type of probate that applies in an individual case depends largely, but not exclusively, upon the dollar value of the assets in the estate of the deceased. Contact our firm for more detailed information and for legal representation in your specific probate case.

Comprehensive Probate Representation — Helping Families Heal and Move Forward GRANT LAW CORPORATION benefits you with a personalized approach to estate administration and probate:

Complete probate and trust administration: To avoid probate many clients have revocable trusts prepared as part of their estate plan. The probate and trust administration processes are very similar. Each requires someone in a position of responsibility, ensuring the estate plan is properly carried out. We handle all administrative tasks for probate and for trust administration.

Complete probate and trust litigation: We make every effort in administration of trusts and estates to resolve all disputes in a way that avoids lawsuits. Disputes surface from matters such as allegations of duress, outright theft, exploitation of the elderly and accusations of improper asset distribution. When these disputes cannot be handled outside of court, we have the skill and experience to litigate the matters on your behalf.

Counseling and guidance throughout the process: For probate and trust administrations, we work with you through the entire process. We emphasize cordial and efficient family interactions throughout.

Avoiding Probate in Florida by Using Relevant Estate Planning Tools: Comprehensive, personalized estate planning can include use of revocable trusts, proper beneficiary designations and other legal devices to minimize or even completely avoid the probate process.

These types of disputes often arise when a trustee has mismanaged or misappropriated trust assets, or when a trustee has not properly cooperated with trust beneficiaries. If a will or trust is challenged because it was not properly signed and witnessed, or because it’s determined that, at the time of execution, the decedent did not have requisite mental capacity to make informed decisions concerning the distribution of their estate, our attorneys work to effectively litigate or resolve these disputes.
