If you don’t yet have an estate planning attorney, it may be because you don’t understand the many ways this professional is prepared to make life easier for you.

Estate Planning Attorneys Give Peace of Mind
Your estate planning attorney is prepared to talk to you about how you want your family to be cared for when you are gone. They understand this subject’s sensitivity and know that every person has unique needs for their specific circumstances. Your Millman Law Group lawyer will listen carefully to your concerns and help you anticipate future situations you may not have thought about yet. They turn your wishes into an organized and thorough estate plan. They aim to make this process run smoothly so you can enjoy peace of mind for the rest of your life.
Your Attorney Advises and Assists Personal Representatives
Taking on the responsibility of administering an estate is no joke. A personal representative, also known as an “executor,” will be named in the Will. However, Florida law requires that a personal representative hire an attorney to assist them with formal administration. Your estate planning attorney will help the representative navigate the legal complexities and requirements of administering an estate. Your attorney can:
- Locate and assume control of all estate assets
- Calculate and pay estate taxes
- Pay debts and final bills
- Open and manage the estate’s checking account
- Order property appraisals
- Prepare and file court documents
- Make final distributions
If you are assigned as trustee for someone else’s trust in their estate, you can also depend on your attorney to help you perform your role successfully.
Your Attorney Can Handle the Difficult Situations
Not all estates are straightforward, and not all families are without complications. Your estate planning attorney is skilled at navigating the relationships and conflicts that may arise when a family administers an estate. Issues may arise, such as:
- Financial disputes
- Will contests
- Guardianship issues
- Property left to a minor
- Incomplete contracts
- Estates don’t have enough assets to satisfy creditor’s claims
Handling these matters on your own is not advisable or necessary when you have an experienced and knowledgeable attorney on your side.
