As experienced Florida probate attorneys, trust lawyers, and estate attorneys, we are thoroughly familiar with the applicable Florida law, including FL probate law. We know how important it is for the Florida probate estate administration process to be completed as soon as reasonably possible under Florida law, and as efficiently as possible, regardless of whether the probate estate is a summary administration, a formal administration, an ancillary administration, or if the probate administration is simply to probate a deed, or a probate estate that is subject to the Federal or Florida estate tax. Our Florida probate lawyers and estate attorneys provide our clients with complete and timely probate information regarding the status and activities of each Florida probate or trust case.

 What is probate administration in Florida?

We are familiar with the Florida probate law, Florida trust law, Florida guardianship law, Florida probate rules, Florida probate code, Florida probate procedures, the Florida court of probate and the Florida probate forms necessary for complying with the Florida law of probate in the Ft. Lauderdale probate courts. Our
Florida probate lawyers, trust attorneys, and estate attorneys counsel our Fort Lauderdale and Broward County clients on each phase of the legal probate process for estate administration or the trust administration process and provide direction for each step in the probate timeline that must be taken. Our Florida probate attorneys, trust lawyers and estate attorneys promptly respond to all questions that are asked, providing complete probate information and patiently provide our Fort Lauderdale clients with a complete explanation of the Florida law of wills and probate and what needs to be done to comply with the Florida law of probate, and why.

Our legal probate fees for representing you in the Florida court of probate for the administration of a probate estate or a trust administration will depend on the facts and circumstances of your particular case. Often our probate attorneys, trust lawyers, and estate attorneys will work on a flat fee or fixed fee basis for Fort Lauderdale clients. Other times, a probate lawyer's or trust attorney's hourly rates are appropriate for probate fees. In particular, if your Florida probate estate administration is for the sole purpose of a real estate probate, or a house probate, i.e., transferring title to real property, or is a Summary Administration, our Florida probate lawyer will work on a fixed fee basis, so that you will know from the beginning exactly what your total cost will be for the Florida probate process.
