Guiding Families Through The Probate Process
Planning for the future can be a difficult conversation. However, deciding who will take care of your children or who will make financial decisions for you when you are no longer able to do so can bring you the peace of mind you need.
I am David A. Carroll, an experienced attorney licensed to practice in Florida and Arkansas. I help people understand their estate planning options, as well as create those documents. When clients come to my office to discuss a will, they work directly with me to create their estate planning documents.
It is especially important for parents to create a will designating who they want to care for their children if something should happen to them. Others create wills in order to leave certain property to specific people. I also assist people in the creation of powers of attorney, health care surrogates and living wills so that they know their wishes will be carried out even if they can no longer do so themselves.
Probate and Estate Administration
Probating even a relatively simple estate plan can be complicated. An experienced, compassionate attorney can help personal representatives ensure the proper steps are taken to distribute the property according to the will or according to state law.
With more than 25 years of experience, I help clients with the probate administration. Sometimes wills are contested, and I assist clients defending a will or opposing it. For help easing the probate process, contact my firm.
There are a number of documents that can help you take care of yourself and your estate. Please contact me for assistance in preparing your: Will, Living Will, Durable Power of Attorney, Health Care Surrogate, or HIPAA Personal Representative.
HIPAA Personal Representative
You may know of someone that does not have family living locally or who is in a committed relationship, but not married. Due to very strong privacy laws, in a hospitalization or emergency, it may be difficult to visit or share medical information without prior approval or to have access to the patient without prior approval provided in a HIPAA personal representative document.
