Elder Law

Effectively Planning for the Future

It is human nature to watch the people around us. When people succeed, we want to copy them. When we see things we don't like, we strive to understand what we would do differently in the same situation.

As a senior citizen, if you have neighbors, friends or acquaintances that had problems with their estate, you may want to take the appropriate steps to make sure the same thing doesn't happen with your estate.

Burton Law and Title, P.L., brings over 10 years of experience to clients. Our lawyer — Jennifer Burton — works closely with clients in Mary Esther and throughout Florida to understand their wishes and find the appropriate legal documents to reflect those goals in elder law and estate planning matters. Contact our firm online or call 850-200-0203 to schedule your initial consultation.

Elder Law Tools to Avoid Probate

Many clients we work with are worried about their estate going through probate. Some people fear the public nature and cost of the process; while others are concerned their wishes will not be fully respected. When clients contact us, we create a plan that will cover the estate planning needs you have.

Wills can be simple or complex, depending upon your situation. If you are a family with children, you will need to name someone to take care of your children. A will allows you to assert your wishes or desires.

We take the time to interview clients and understand their concerns. By understanding your assets and the other estate planning documents you have, we can create a plan that outlines your wishes. Our elder law representation includes drafting and reviewing documents such as:

  • Durable powers of attorney
  • Wills
  • Living wills
  • Trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Qualified income trusts for Medicaid
  • Pre-Need guardian declarations and health care surrogate designations

We can also help prepare guardianships if necessary. Often, family members find themselves in a difficult position when their loved one can no longer make decisions on their own. We can help you follow the steps to have a guardian appointed.

When you contact our firm, we can help you by researching and preparing the legal documents you need to have your wishes recognized.

Working through elder law situations can be frustrating and overwhelming, we are here to help you establish your wishes so they will be recognized and prevent you from being taken advantage of by an outside party. Schedule your consultation by contacting us online or by calling 850-200-0203.
