Estate Planning is undoubtedly one of the most emotional and delicate areas of law.

ASR Law Firm continues to provide uncompromised legal advice and service while keeping in mind the sensitive nature of each client’s specific circumstance.

At ASR Law Firm, our Estate Planning legal services include the following areas:

CONTACT AN EXPERIENCED ATTORNEY

Wills and Revocable Trusts
Florida residents who die without a valid will or revocable trust are considered to have died intestate leaving the distribution of their assets up to the probate court in accordance with state law and not necessarily as the deceased may have wished.
Durable Powers of Attorney
A Durable Power of Attorney affords a specific person the power to act regarding medical care or finances while a person is mentally incapacitated. Contrary to an Ordinary (non-durable) Power of Attorney that automatically ends when the person granting it loses mental capacity, a Durable Power of Attorney remains effective only during the time the person is mentally incapacitated.
Living Wills and Healthcare Directives
A knowledgeable and tactical lawyer is imperative to ensure that matters are handled in an efficient, cost-effective manner that is most beneficial to your business.
Nominations of Preneed Guardian
A nomination of a Preneed Guardian allows a person to select a trusted individual to make both personal and financial decisions while they are unable to make such decisions on their own or to conduct their own affairs.

Advanced Asset Protection Planning

Irrevocable Trusts

Irrevocable Trusts permanently transfers interest away from a grantor and cannot be modified or terminated without the permission of the beneficiary.

Personal Residence Trusts

A Personal Residence Trusts allows a grantor to reside in a residence for several years while having transferred the property to beneficiaries whose rights will vest at a later date and is typically used to transfer a grantor’s residence out of the grantor’s estate while benefiting from a low gift tax value.

IRA Trusts

Such accounts are designed to hold a grantor’s IRA accounts for the benefits of others upon their death.

Dynasty Trusts

A Dynasty Trust is a longer-term trust that serves as a vehicle for a grantor to pass wealth from one generation to another without incurring transfer taxes.

Life Insurance Trusts

Life Insurance Trusts are a type of irrevocable trust that is both the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy.

Education Trusts and Qualified Tuition (“529”) Plans

Unlike a 529 plan that encourages saving for future higher education costs through tax savings, an Educational Trust specifies that the trust funds are to be used for education purposes only, naming the beneficiaries and stating how the trust funds may be used.

Asset Protection Trusts

Asset Protection Trusts encompass a wide range of legal structures used to avoid to lessen the effects of taxation etc. on the beneficiary.
