A Wide Variety Of Experience In Probate & Estate Administration

Probate is the process in which an individual's financial affairs are settled after death. If there is a will, a judge will determine whether it meets legal requirements and can be deemed valid.

At Staack, Simms & Reighard, PLLC, our experienced attorneys provide legal assistance with all types of probate in Clearwater.

Under Florida law, probate typically is completed through one of the below:

  • Summary administration - For estates with a property value of not more than $75,000.
  • Formal administration - Other estates that are not allowed summary administration under Florida law go through this more detailed process.

Our probate and estate administration services also include:

  • Legal representation in adversary proceedings that involve probate and estate matters, such as will contests.
  • Preparation of wills and trusts, as well as estate planning assistance for those not subject to Federal Estate Taxation.
