A Florida probate lawyer handles estates of Florida residents who are deceased. Probate is the legal process used to inventory, appraise and distribute assets and financial holdings owned by decedents. Nearly all Florida estates must undergo the probate process unless they have established a revocable or irrevocable trust.
When possible, it is best to hire a Florida probate lawyer long before you need their services. Probate lawyers can assist with estate planning and utilize techniques which allow people to keep certain assets out of probate or avoid the probate process altogether
