South Florida Estate Planning & Asset Protection Lawyers

At Friedman Elder Law Department our mission is to help you plan for whatever tomorrow may bring.

We help you see the big picture in order to create a legal roadmap that protects the life you’ve built for yourself and your family going forward. 

You already have an Estate.

If you own something, you already have an estate. Your estate may include real estate, bank accounts, cars, and family heirlooms. 

If you don’t properly plan, and you become incapacitated or die, the Florida court system will decide the fate of your possessions. Don’t let this happen to you.

Many people think that Estate Planning is just for the wealthy. But that isn’t the case. At Friedman Elder Law, we show you how a proper estate plan can protect your assets now, so that you can leave a legacy to your loved ones.

Estate Planning is planning in advance to ensure your assets go where you want them to go. In addition, it ensures that your family won’t have to make difficult decisions about your medical care and finances without knowing your wishes.

A well-designed estate plan can bring great peace to you and your family.

What is included in an Estate Plan?

Knowing where to start or what details to include in your estate plan can be downright intimidating.

Our first step is to learn about you. Once we learn about your hopes, dreams, and vision we use the appropriate legal planning tools that work to protect your life’s work.

Here are a few of the elements we may incorporate into your estate plan:

The best time to create an estate plan is when you are alive and well. Contact us at (954) 866-1055 or click here to get started today.

Estate Planning can seem stressful.

Let's change that.

Estate planning requires thinking about yourself or a loved one no longer being able to make sound decisions. 

Whether that’s a result of an age-related illness, accident, or death, the person calling the shots simply isn’t in that position anymore.

With our process, we’ll take the time to understand your present situation and create a peace-of-mind solution that gets you the care you need.

Plan now for a peaceful future

There are many advantages to going through the estate planning process while you’re of sound mind and body.

It gives you the ability to protect your assets against the overwhelming cost of long-term care in the future.

Planning in advance means you’ll be:

Specifying where your assets go

Your estate plan maps out exactly what happens and where your assets will go in the event of your death. This greatly reduces the chances of family disagreements later on.

Having a plan if you're disabled

If a mental or physical impairment suddenly robs you of independence, you can specify where and how you’d like to be looked after.

Minimizing estate taxes

Florida does not have an estate tax, and with the federal estate tax exemption being so high, most of our clients do not need to worry about estate taxes. If this changes, however, proper estate planning can always help minimize any tax impact on your estate, letting your beneficiaries keep more of what you're leaving them.

Supporting your family

Your customized estate plan ensures your spouse is provided for even in the event they are in need of care. It further will allow you to protect your children’s inheritance and ensure that your legacy is passed down to your grandchildren.
