Florida Estate Planning Attorney Protects Your Legacy

Provide for your family’s future with the help of an experienced lawyer

Planning your estate is one of the most important tasks to complete during your lifetime. If you do not have proper estate planning documents in place, you risk your family not knowing how to best carry out your wishes.  Attorney Rose M. La Femina has the knowledge and skills necessary to create an estate plan that is in your family’s best interests.

Helping you develop a comprehensive estate plan

The complexity of your estate depends on many factors including, but not limited to, the amount and type of assets you hold and your vision on how the assets should be distributed.  We help you create a plan that allows you to have control over the distribution of your assets while minimizing the tax implications.   An estate plan can establish:

  • How much money your beneficiaries will receive and when they can access it
  • Who receives your property and how it is distributed
  • Who becomes the guardian of your minor children
  • If you would like to stay on life-support if incapacitated
  • If you have specifications for your funeral or burial arrangements
  • Who is designated with power of attorney over your affairs

We believe that each client is an individual and should be treated as such. Our estate plans are customized to meet your wishes for your healthcare, assets, children and extended family.

Estate tax planning in Florida

Depending on the value of your assets, your family may have to pay estate taxes upon your death. While Florida does not have a separate estate tax, you may still have to pay a federal tax.  With the help of our experienced tax planning attorney, you can reduce the amount of estate taxes you are required to pay, allowing more of your assets to go to your loved ones.
