At the Eidson Law Firm our estate planning and wills practice can assist you in a wide variety of estate planning needs, from drafting a simple will to preparing a complex trust and comprehensive estate plan.

Whether you need a complex trust or a simple will, our experience in estate planning and our understanding of the nuances of Florida law enable us to effectively assist you with your specific estate planning needs.

Estate Planning Saves Time & Money

Attorney fees for probate in Florida are set by Florida statute and can exceed 3% of the value of your estate.  The Eidson Law Firm can prepare an estate plan tailored specifically to avoid the fees associated with a formal probate proceeding.  In addition to expensive fees, the formal probate process takes significant time.  Further, a description of all of your assets will become public record.  A properly drafted estate plan incorporating the use of a trust can help you pass on your assets outside of probate, which helps keep your assets from becoming public record.
