At Friedman Elder Law & Estate Planning 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.
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.

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:
Changing with life’s twists and turns is what we do best.
Most people have heard of estate planning — or at least of wills and trusts — yet many Floridians do not have these vital instruments in place. Knowing where to start can be overwhelming.
Whether it’s proactive planning to protect yourself for future long-term care needs or crisis planning to manage assets after your loved one is already in need of care, we are committed to providing the best possible solutions—now and in the future.
