Estate Planning

It is taken for granted that families grow and change, but few people consider how these changes will affect their loved ones in the long term. All too few people plan for what could or will happen (to children and other loved ones) in the event of unexpected death or incapacitation. Even if they consider that, they often do not consider aspects of health care, financial maintenance, asset transfer or estate administration. Proper estate planning that accounts for these issues will require specialized and comprehensive knowledge of these issues.

If you are considering or are working through estate planning issues, we at Fischler & Friedman, P.A., will use our decades of experience and expertise to help you establish an estate plan that will protect your interests.

We can help you create a comprehensive estate plan that involves:

  • Trusts
  • Wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills and Designations of Health Care Surrogate
  • Transfer of assets through beneficiary designations
  • Disposition of estate assets and personal property

Additionally, we represent clients in probate and estate administration issues.

Our attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience and expertise, an MBA (attorney Michael A. Fischler) and a finance degree (attorney Howard S. Friedman).
