Skillful Florida Attorney Creates Clear, Enforceable Wills

Leesburg lawyer prepares documents that accomplish clients’ goals

After accumulating assets and building relationships over a lifetime, you deserve to determine how your property will be allocated once you pass away. Without a sound will, however, everything you’ve earned could be distributed according to the state’s priorities, not yours. At the Law Office of Kimberly A. Schulte, LLC in Leesburg, I draw on more than 25 years of experience drafting wills and constructing comprehensive estate plans for a diverse group of Florida clients. My firm offers individualized attention and shows how wills and other instruments, such as trusts, advance directives and guardianship instructions, can accomplish your objectives and avert problems for your loved ones.

Lake County firm works to preserve assets and transfer them efficiently

Throughout Lake County and the surrounding region, I handle a full range of tasks pertaining to the creation, review and executions of wills, such as:

  • Drafting — I work closely with clients by explaining the legal requirements to make a will enforceable and identifying ways to avoid unnecessary taxes and expenses. Your will won’t just direct property distribution but serve as a fitting legacy.
  • Revisions — A will is not a document that should be drafted and then forgotten. Changes in relationships and financial fortunes can make prior instructions obsolete. However, wills don’t revise themselves, so my firm can conduct periodic reviews to ensure that the document remains current.
  • Ensuring your will fits in a complete estate plan — Some people assume that detailed estate planning only benefits the extremely wealthy. This isn’t true, and, in fact, making proper preparations is even more important for families who are depending on a prompt, accurate resolution of estate matters. My firm not only creates effective wills but also advises you how they can work together with trusts, insurance policies and other methods of safeguarding and shifting assets.

Don’t hesitate to obtain the assistance you need from a qualified estate planning attorney. Whatever your objectives are, you’ll emerge with a will that reflects your values and enforces your intentions.

Advocate guides executors and beneficiaries through the probate process

Losing a loved one is difficult enough, but if you’ve been named as personal representative of the estate, you face a new set of challenges. My firm can explain which of the various probate options that exist under Florida law is best given the value of the estate and other factors. Whether formal administration or summary administration works best, I will handle each crucial task with skill and efficiency, including filing the will, communicating with beneficiaries, gathering and making an inventory of assets, paying other expenses and ultimately executing the directions set forth in the will.

Dedicated adviser helps parents make guardianship arrangements

Addressing how your property should be distributed is very important, but even more important is ensuring the well-being of your children if they become orphaned. I take great care to explain how legal guardianship is established in Florida and to make sure that parents have the information they need when designating someone to care for their sons and daughters. Nothing is ever certain, but I’ll help you gain the peace of mind that comes with knowing that plans are in place to protect your children in the event of an untimely tragedy.
