We offer assistance in all aspects of Estate Planning. We understand that every client's goal is to secure future provisions for spouse, family, and other loved ones.
Our attorneys provide counsel in the creation of will, trusts, guardianships, healthcare and financial directives, including medical powers of attorney, living wills, and financial powers of attorney, durable powers of attorney, and appointments. We want to ensure that your personal matters and financial affairs are appropriately structured.
If you own property, have children, have recently been married or divorced or wish to make a special bequest to a friend or relative, you should create or update your will. If you are new to the Jacksonville area or your will or other estate planning documents were created in another state, you may want to have your documents reviewed for validity.
Typically, clients seek to avoid probate and eliminate death taxes. A living trust will often avoid probate. Much like a will, a living trust instructs what is to happen to your property in the event of death. While alive, you remain in control and can change the trust at any time. Setting up a trust allows you to avoid the expense and delay of probate.
Our attorneys can also draft medical powers of attorney, living wills, and financial powers of attorney and appointment to provide instructions for family and medical personnel in case of your incapacitation.
We represent parties in the following areas:
- Personal Injury
- Nursing Home / Assisted Living Facility Abuse

We believe that every client deserves individualized and focused attention by our attorneys and support staff. We are committed to providing personalized service, regardless of the nature of your business. In our practice and through this website, we seek to reach out and educate the public on the legal rights available. For example, states provide state-specific rights to personal injury victims that pertain to medical care, wage loss, and compensation for injuries. A victim's rights should be protected and enforced whenever necessary.
Before making any agreements or decisions with the individual or entity that caused your injuries, you should consult an attorney about your legal rights especially as to monetary compensation.
