Estate Planning

Miramar Beach Estate Planning Attorney

When you have worked hard your entire life to build an estate that will provide for your family, you want to properly plan so that your estate is distributed according to your wishes and the estate avoids any unnecessary tax liability. If a loved one has died and you have been named executor of the estate, you want to be certain that the assets of the estate are accounted for and that your loved one's estate plan is properly carried out. Whether you are planning an estate or probating an estate, you need a skilled attorney.

At the Wyrough Law Firm, in Miramar Beach, we represent individuals in all matters involving estate planning and probate administration. We have counseled clients throughout the Florida panhandle since 1997. Contact us for a confidential consultation.

In our estate planning practice, we educate clients regarding the various estate planning tools available. We talk about the probate process and help clients understand why they want to keep their estates out of the probate courts. We review existing wills and trusts, and draft all documents required to implement an effective plan, including powers of attorney and medical directives. We will prepare simple wills and trusts, but have also handled more complex trusts, including testamentary and living trusts, revocable and irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts and split A/B trusts.

In our probate administration process, we work with executors and personal representatives to ensure that the assets of the estate are passed on according to the deceased's wishes. This often includes providing the probate court with an accounting of the assets of the estate, overseeing the payment of all debts and taxes of the estate, and confirming that the assets are distributed according to the terms of the will.

If you live in the Florida panhandle and want a lawyer who will provide a high level of personal attention, contact our office to schedule an appointment. We provide free initial consultations to clients with estate planning needs.
