Digital assets are becoming more significant in our daily lives. There are many problems with digital assets and traditional estate planning techniques. The biggest problem is that most digital assets are licenses that are non-transferable and expire upon the death or short terms of inactivity.

We can also limit your exposť by performing due diligence, obtaining permits, and helping with Florida State and national tax credits.

- Guardianship

Our guardianship lawyer helps families deal with incapacitated family members or allows others to take care of minor children. Sometimes companies or individuals take advantage of the elderly and obtain guardianships in an effort to take control of the personís assets.

- Personal Injury

Personal Injury claims or lawsuits arise when one is injured or killed because of the carelessness or negligence of another. When a person or child is injured due to the negligence of another, the injured or their family may recover money damages for related medical expenses, wage loss, pain and suffering, mental anguish and lost enjoyment of life.

- Probate

Our probate lawyers deal with the distribution of assets of a Florida Probate estate. The fees for these services are typically set by statute, but often with larger Florida Probate cases they are negotiable. The fees are generally based on the assets that are subject to probate and not all of the decedent's assets.

- Traffic Tickets

What are my options upon receiving a Florida Traffic Ticket or Florida Speeding Ticket? Many just pay the fine and move on. Did you know that this is a guilty plea and can add points to your insurance and cause you to lose your Florida driver's license? For truck drivers, taxi drivers, or pilots these points can cause a revocation of their license to work and their ability to provide for their families.

- Trusts

A Florida Trust is a relationship protected by the courts in which one person, called the trustee, holds a property interest for the benefit or use of another person. Any person who is legally capable of transferring property can create a trust. A trust can be a simple arrangement or a complex arrangement.

- Trust Litigation

Our trust litigation lawyers represent beneficiaries who have been affected by improper actions of an individual (often a trustee). We represent individuals and families in Jacksonville and the surrounding areas in Florida Trust Litigation. Our Florida Trust Attorneys and Florida Trust Lawyers work with clients in Florida and with Florida Trust Disputes.
