Many clients do not know anything about the probate process. Probate is the process through which the estate of a deceased individual is distributed. This can happen in two ways:

Intestate
The term intestate refers to the death of a person who passes without having a will. If a person dies without a will, his or her estate will be distributed according to Florida intestate statutes.

Testate
Opposite of intestate, testate means that an individual died while having a legally valid will. His or her property will be distributed according to the terms of the will.

An estate can be made up of many different things such as real estate, personal possessions, and financial accounts. We are committed to standing by you throughout the entire process, handling related issues such as will contests and explaining any laws that may apply to your case.
