Tampa and Riverview Estate Planning & Probate Lawyer
Estate planning is the cornerstone for ensuring that your property will be distributed in accordance with your wishes. Your estate plan also expresses your intent concerning your personal care (both financial and health) at the end of your life. Effective estate planning results in efficient probate, the judicial process of carrying out your wishes.

Putting Your Mind at Ease by Preparing Your Estate Plan
We have extensive experience helping our clients prepare comprehensive estate plans. The following Florida estate planning documents can give you a high level of flexibility with your financial and medical decisions:
- Wills: Every estate plan should include a will, which makes your wishes known with regard to your property, appoints a personal representative for the probate process and names guardians for your minor children.
- Trusts: A trust may enable you to pass along your property through a more private process, give you greater control or have other benefits. We handle revocable and irrevocable trusts, including living trusts.
- Living wills and medical surrogates: With these documents, you can make your wishes known regarding your preference for any life-saving medical treatments or end of life provisions and appoint a trusted person to implement those wishes.
- Powers of attorney: If you are concerned that you may lose the capacity to care for yourself, a power of attorney allows you to name a person to act on your behalf and protect your interests.
Experienced estate planning lawyer Clinton Paris will explain all of your options and the consequences of those options for you and your loved ones.
Guiding You Through the Probate Process
If you have recently lost a loved one, you may be wondering what to do about his or her property. You may be named as the personal representative (executor) in the deceased person’s will, or a personal representative may need to be appointed by the probate court. We guide families through each step of probate.
In some cases, disputes arise during the probate process. For instance, there may be disputes about debts, the existence of a valid will or the status of a family member not named in the will. Experienced litigator Clinton Paris can represent your interests in a probate dispute.
