Helping to guide you through probate in Fort Myers, Florida Probate follows what is typically a painful emotional loss. At Daniel J. Endrizal, III PA, I am a knowledgeable, meticulous probate attorney who has 12 years of experience in probate law. I know how to ease the stress of probate by guiding executors and beneficiaries.
The process of probate Most executors have rarely if ever probated a will and know little about the process. I can guide you through the complex probate process, including:
Filing the will with the Florida probate court
Developing the best strategy for fairly and expeditiously probating the estate
Finding and collecting assets
Closing and opening bank accounts
Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
Paying estate taxes
Valuing, managing, preserving and liquidating the estate
Hiring experts, when appropriate
Valuing and managing the estate I assist executors with the arduous process of collecting, managing, valuing, protecting and liquidating the assets of the estate. I have a team of experts available to assist in every aspect of estate probate. When appropriate, I call upon accountants, financial advisers, real estate agents, property managers and other professionals to assist with executor duties. I can access expert opinions about unique assets such as antiques, rare books, automobiles and other collectables for accurate valuation, management and possible sale.
Probate disputes Even in apparently straightforward estate cases, there are sometimes disputes between beneficiaries. My professional courtroom presence can calm the emotionally-charged process of probating a challenged will or disputed executor or judicial decision. When it is in the best interests of my client to preserve cordial familial relationships, I am adept at mediating these disputes. When necessary, I assertively defend my client’s beneficiary rights within the Florida probate court.
