There are some common misconceptions about estate planning. For example: that it’s only for the wealthy or merely involves deciding who gets what after you pass away. At Patriot Legal Group, we believe estate planning is for everyone, regardless of financial situation or family status; it’s really about planning for your future, both the expected and unexpected.
Certainly, having an estate plan will determine how your property will be managed and distributed after death, but a comprehensive plan can achieve several other objectives, such as providing for a loved one with special needs, protecting your assets from creditors, planning for incapacity, minimizing estate taxes, and preserving your legacy. At Patriot Legal Group, defending your legacy is more than our tagline – it’s what we do.
Our legal team is here to guide you through the process and will work with you to put in place essential estate planning documents, including:
- Last will and testament (will)
- Power of attorney
- Advanced healthcare directive (healthcare proxy)
- Revocable trust
- Irrevocable trust
- Living will
When you consult with us, we will take the time to understand your circumstances and help you design an estate plan tailored to your needs and objectives. We work with clients from all walks of life — individuals, veterans, service members, young families, same-sex couples, retirees — and will provide you with a welcoming environment in which you can make informed decisions about your financial future.
Central Florida Probate Attorney
Probate is the court-supervised process for validating a will and distributing the decedent’s assets. That sounds simple enough, but probate can be complicated and confusing, depending on the size of the estate. Whether you have been named the personal representative (executor) of a loved one’s estate or a family member has passed away without a will in place, it is wise to consult with an experienced probate attorney. Well-versed in the Florida Probate Code, our team of veteran attorneys will guide you every step of the way. Knowing that the death of a family member is a devastating and emotional time for everyone, we will provide you with compassionate, efficient representation when you need it most.
Representing Clients in Family Law Matters in Central Florida
No family is immune to conflict, but when disputes cannot be resolved in the home, it takes an experienced family law attorney to protect your interests. At Patriot Legal Group, we work with families to find innovative solutions to a wide range of issues, including:
We know that no two families are alike and that each has unique needs and challenges. Regardless of the issue facing your family, we will provide you with trustworthy advice and guidance. While many family law issues can and should be settled outside of court, we prepare each case for trial in case litigation cannot be avoided. Rest assured, we will work to protect your interests and help you navigate this difficult transition.
Veterans Benefits Attorneys Serving Orlando, Tampa, Polk County, and More
According to the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs, Florida has the third-largest population of veterans in the nation. Given that veterans are more likely to have disabilities and other unique circumstances that make planning for their medical and financial needs especially challenging, we are committed to helping you obtain the benefits you have earned, such as:
- Disability benefits
- Aid and attendance
- Veterans pensions
- Career and employment
We regularly work with veterans to overcome the obstacles to obtaining these well-deserved benefits and also advise surviving spouses and children of veterans about the benefits and resources that may be available to them. As VA accredited attorneys, our attorneys can assist clients in any state with the VA benefits.
As veteran attorneys, we go above and beyond to provide our clients with informed representation and dependable service. We have dedicated ourselves to serving our country and we are committed to serving the Central Florida community with dignity and compassion. Well-versed in applicable federal and state laws governing our practice areas, we have a proven history of delivering positive results.
