Our wills and trust lawyers resolve our clients’ succession goals while making shrewd recommendations for minimizing income, gift and estate taxes. With more than 130 years of combined experience, and handling estate planning and probate matters for high-net-worth individuals, family offices and closely-held businesses, our wills and trusts practice is one of the foremost attorney groups practicing in Southwest Florida.

Estate planning is a dynamic process that is best executed when attorneys offer personal attention and care throughout the lifecycle of the planning process. Our clients typically work alongside our attorneys to plan and prepare for multigenerational wealth transfer. Our counsel is holistic and considers each fiduciary’s and beneficiary’s overall financial goals.
Each estate planning matter is approached with individualized attention to our client’s unique circumstances. Because estate planning agreements can be sensitive in nature, we take care to offer discreet counsel and make each party feel comfortable and at ease. We protect our clients’ and their families’ confidential information, while ensuring their estate plans are resolved in a timely and efficient manner. When changes to the plan are requested, our attorneys evaluate the best possible approach for carrying out their wishes. Our estate planning tools minimize our clients’ tax obligations while ensuring their assets are protected for generations to come.
