Estate Planning And Litigation Attorneys

Creating An Individualized Estate Plan

No matter how large or small your estate may be, having a proper estate plan in place is important. It allows you to make decisions now that will ensure that your property goes to whom you want, the way you want and when you want. It can also save your family members money on taxes, court costs and attorney's fees, while allowing them to mourn your loss without the burdens of unnecessary red tape and financial confusion.

At the law firm of Frese, Whitehead & Anderson, P.A., we have two attorneys on staff who have been certified by the Florida Bar's Board of Legal Specialization in the area of wills, trusts and estates. Their expertise — combined with our focus on related areas of the law such as tax, business and real estate — enables us to handle a broad range of estate planning and litigation matters. These include:

  • Business succession planning — Preparing to pass a business along to your children or trusted employees upon retirement or death
