Estate Planning

Greg R. Garner has helped hundreds of families throughout Central Florida create a specialized estate plan to fit each family's unique needs, desires, and goals.  We know that you have worked hard to get where you are and are ready to help provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your affairs are in order according to your wishes.  We can set things up so that your estate is not subject to excessive taxation, litigation, or court involvement.

Effective estate planning involves more than simply drafting a will stating who you want to receive your assets after you pass away.  It also allows you to control who is in charge of taking care of your financial, personal, and medical affairs should you become incapacitated or unable to handle such affairs on your own while you are alive.

 

While it is not always easy to think about these issues, it is of vital importance for you and your family to consider crafting an estate plan that is tailored to your specific situation and needs.  The absence of a proper estate plan means these important decisions will not be controlled by you and will instead be dictated by Florida law, which will most likely lead to an outcome that you did not anticipate or desire.

 

The estate planning tools we commonly use are:

 

• Last Will and Testament

• Durable Power of Attorney

• Advance Health Care Directive

• HIPAA Release and Authorization

• Living Will

• Designation of Pre-Need Guardian

• Revocable Living Trusts

• Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts

• Special Needs Trust

• Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts

• Charitable Trusts

We will analyze your unique set of circumstances and goals, inform you of what your options are, and craft an estate plan tailored to meet your needs.  Our goal is to give you confidence that your assets will be preserved, your family will be protected, and that everything will be handled according to your wishes.
