Mortellaro Law helps families with their Estate Planning, Probate, and Elder Law legal needs and is the most 5-star reviewed Estate Planning & Elder Law Firm serving clients throughout both Tampa Bay and the Treasure Coast of Florida.
We advise clients in the creation and implementation of plans that effectively express the client’s personal desires regarding the disposition and protection of assets while providing potential tax advantages and security for family and beneficiaries. We help clients prepare their Last Wills & Testament whether simple or complex. Without a proper Will, Florida State law determines who inherits your property. A Health Care Proxy, Living Will and Power of Attorney are all an important part of an Estate Plan and we work with our clients to put these documents in place. There are many complexities that can affect an estate plan.
As people age, they often find themselves in need of care; and the money to pay for it. Our Elder Law Division helps seniors through the complicated task of obtaining and coordinating county, state, and federal benefits to provide and pay for this care. We have successfully obtained Medicaid and VA Benefits for thousands of clients, many of whom were previously told by others that they were over income or over assets to qualify.
Probate is the court-supervised process designed to address both the assets and debts of the decedent. We believe the best option for avoiding probate is to plan ahead before the inevidateble and difficult topic such as one's own mortality.
