Tallahassee Estate Planning Attorney
ASSISTANCE WITH WILLS, PROBATE & TRUSTS
Every adult should have a will. Although not required by law, it is a gift you leave your loved ones. In the event that you or a loved one perishes without a will, the state will decide what to do with your assets. In most cases, it would be more prudent that you decide so that your memory lives on. By using wills and trusts properly, you can help make sure that your assets go to the people you want to receive them.
If you need the services of an experienced estate planning attorney, please call Carolyn LeBoeuf in our office. She has been helping our clients with their estate planning needs for over 20 years. Contact us at Brooks LeBoeuf, P.A. to set up an appointment.

WILLS & TRUSTS IN FL
Parents with minor children must have wills to advise the court as to who should raise their children if both parents die before the children become adults. Parents also need wills to identify the individuals who will manage the money set aside to support the children while they are minors.
Certain trusts are available to control how and when beneficiaries, including children, receive their inheritance. Without a will, the court must distribute all funds to a child at age eighteen. Since most individuals do not possess the necessary maturity at age eighteen to manage large sums of money, the results can be disastrous without a will and a trust.
We also practice in the area of probate law in North Florida. Probate is the legal process by which a will is proved to be valid and decedents’ debts are paid and assets distributed after they die. State laws direct the probate court in how to distribute the deceased’s estate, so it is important to consult a firm with expertise in this area of the law.
Probate is also required in all wrongful death cases. Carolyn LeBoeuf has more than two decades of experience assisting clients with all of the complex issues associated with establishing an estate or serving as a personal representative for the estate. She is available to assist our personal injury and wrongful death attorneys and our clients to deal with a wide variety of questions in wrongful death claims.
