Estate Planning

Estate planning is not just for the wealthy. Protecting your property and ensuring that your assets are distributed based on your wishes is essential for clients from all walks of life. The process of estate planning is proactive. Detailed and thorough planning protects your assets, limits exposure to estate taxes, and helps your beneficiaries avoid probate.


Probate is the legal process of distributing assets to heirs and beneficiaries. It is an efficient process for administering an estate and handling any unsettled claims made by creditors or family members. Effective estate administration requires detail orientation and a keen understanding of the nuances of probate court procedures. More than a simple matter of ensuring compliance with a detailed set of rules, informed probate administrative counsel can affect fundamental questions about the estate such as who can inherit and who can challenge perceived inequities.

The attorneys at Drawdy & Hartin, P.A. advise probate administrators or Personal Representatives, as they perform all the legal duties associated with probate. We can assist in arranging proper valuation of estate assets, determination and payment of outstanding debt, fair evaluation of probate costs, and fiduciary pay, and the ultimate distribution of the remainder to appropriate heirs and beneficiaries.


The commencement of a Florida guardianship is typically used in two situations — either when a minor receives assets in excess of $15,000 or when a person may be incapacitated. If a guardianship is sought because someone may be incapacitated, then typically it involves two hearings. At the first hearing, the court determines whether the person is incapacitated; at the second hearing, the court appoints a guardian if the person was determined to be incapacitated. Often, these hearings are combined. The court has the option of appointing a limited or a plenary guardian.  If your child is developmentally disabled and has reached the age of majority, you may need to be appointed as a Guardian Advocate.
