Why bring on another attorney?
Over the last few years, I have received many requests to assist other attorneys and their clients on Florida probate matters. Typically, referring attorneys practice other areas of law but receive requests for probate assistance from their clients. Other attorneys may draft simple wills on occasion but do not have time to actually administer the probate estates. I have received requests from attorneys who primarily practice:
- Personal Injury
- Wrongful Death (which typically requires the opening of an estate in formal administration)
- Foreclosure Defense
- Consumer Debt Advocacy & Bankruptcy
- Criminal Defense
I also work with other Probate Attorneys
Interestingly enough, I have worked with other probate attorneys who need assistance managing their caseload. Over the last couple of years, we pared down our focus and we are dedicated to Florida probate and estate matters. This adjustment forced us to streamline our procedures to be as efficient as possible. As a result, most of our probate cases are closed much faster than clients expect.
Whatever the reason, I am happy to chat with attorneys seeking co-counsel arrangements pursuant to the fee division rules of the Florida Bar.
Types of Probate Matters that I take
As a general rule, my office does not take contested matters requiring or anticipating litigation. There are a handful of exceptions. Note that the mere existence of a creditor does not necessarily require litigation. Otherwise, we handle:
- Summary Administration
- Formal Administration
- Homestead Determinations (in probate matters)
- Foreign Will Proceedings
