Miami Wills Lawyer

You work hard to provide for your loved ones and build a meaningful legacy. While it’s not always comfortable to think about, having a well-crafted will is one of the most powerful ways to protect your family’s future and ensure your wishes are carried out after you’re gone.

A will is a valuable estate planning tool that allows you to:

  • Clearly communicate your final wishes, giving you peace of mind
  • Specify who inherits your assets, from sentimental possessions to financial accounts
  • Appoint guardians for your minor children, ensuring they’re cared for by trusted individuals
  • Support the charitable causes that matter most to you
  • Streamline the probate process, saving your family time, money, and stress

Without a will, your estate may be subject to Florida’s intestacy laws, which can lead to unintended consequences and added stress for your loved ones. By taking proactive steps to create a will, you’re giving your family the gift of clarity, security, and a smoother transition during a difficult time.

At Alexander Gil, PLLC, our wills lawyer is dedicated to making the process as easy and stress-free as possible. We take the time to understand your unique situation, provide guidance, and craft a personalized will that reflects your values and goals.

Investing in a properly drafted will is an act of love and responsibility. It shows your commitment to protecting your family’s well-being and preserving the legacy you’ve worked so hard to build.

Take the first step in safeguarding your loved ones’ future. Contact us today to schedule a confidential consultation and learn how we can help you create a will that provides lasting peace of mind.

Why You Need a Will in Your Estate Plan

When you pass away, someone has to decide what happens to everything you own—your car, your house, your bank accounts, and any other assets in your name. A will is a straightforward way of deciding what happens to those possessions beforehand.

On the other hand, when you die without a will, those assets will be divided according to how Florida probate courts see best fit. Unfortunately, for your beneficiaries, this could mean family disputes and litigation that could tie up your estate.

And while a will, itself, doesn’t avoid the probate court, it does reduce confusion and second-guessing about what you would’ve wanted. At a basic level, it gives your loved ones a clear path forward at an already difficult and emotional time.

At Alexander Gil, PLLC, our experienced Miami will lawyers are dedicated to helping you create a clear, legally sound will that reflects your unique circumstances and goals. Don’t leave your legacy to chance; consult with our attorneys today.

Our Wills Lawyer Ensures Your Final Wishes Are Carried Out

At Alexander Gil, PLLC, we understand that planning for the future can be overwhelming, especially when creating or updating your will.

That’s why our team of experienced Miami wills lawyers is here to help you every step of the way. Here’s how we help.

Naming a Guardian for Minor Children

If you have young children, your will is the place to name guardians who will look after them if you’re no longer around. In Florida, there are two main types of guardians: one for property and one for personal care.

A guardian of the property handles your child’s financial matters, like investments and inheritances. A guardian of the person takes care of your child’s day-to-day needs, like food, housing, and education.

Most parents choose the same person for both roles, but it’s smart to have backup options, too. Our attorneys will walk you through the process and help you make the best choices for your family.

Designating an Estate Administrator

When you make a will, you’ll also need to choose a personal representative (aka an executor) to manage your estate during probate and handle any legal issues that come up.

You can pick one person or multiple people to share the job. Our lawyers are here to help you make the right call for your situation. We’ll make sure you understand your options and feel confident in your decision.

Updating Your Will

If you’re of sound mind and acting of your own free will, you can change or revoke your will at any time. The process is fairly simple.

If you decide to revoke your will, your lawyer can help you create a new one. Just keep in mind that under Florida law, you can’t completely cut your spouse out of your will. No matter the state of your marriage, your spouse has a right to a portion of your estate. If you’re thinking about changing your will, it’s best to consult with our Miami will lawyer for advice.

Handling Probate

After you pass away, your will must go through probate before your beneficiaries can receive their inheritance. If your estate is worth more than $75,000, it will go through formal administration. If it’s worth less than that, or if you’ve been deceased for at least two years, it may qualify for summary administration.

As estate planning attorneys, we have a thorough understanding of the probate process. We can help you reduce the impact of probate on your estate by creating a trust to hold most of your assets. We can also provide guidance and support to your loved ones as they navigate the probate process after your passing.

Alex has been amazing throughout the whole process of my estate planning. He was able to make recommendations based on my family of what pieces to set up and walked me through why he recommended each. He's prompt on his follow up for questions and has made understanding all the documents really easy. I dreaded having to do the process until I was able to meet with Alex and calmed me down and made me feel good about the process. I'd give him 10 stars if I could.

We recently had a beloved family member pass away and we had several questions regarding the estate. In just one thirty minute consultation, Alexander Gil identified the key issues for us to consider and provided the answers we needed to decide how to move forward. Alex followed up on our consult by reviewing documents we provided him and confirming his assessment of the situation. Our family was very impressed with his ready knowledge and caring attitude. We will certainly be engaging Alex's firm to handle our estate planning needs.

I first meet Alex when he was presenting for parents on Wills and Trusts and immediately was impressed with his approach and understanding. We proceeded with his services. Not only was he professional but he was very understanding and took the time to hear us and explain every step while answering every question we had. As a parent of a special needs adult, the process can be overwhelming and somewhat depressing but he assured us and helped us feel very good about our plans. He is now our attorney for life! Thanks Alex!!

Alex Gil worked with me at a very difficult time in my life. My partner had just passed away and Alex was there for me every step of the way to handle the execution of her Will and Trust. Alex ALWAYS was responsive and provided expert advice and this in my opinion is what separates Alex Gil. I have worked with many attorneys in my life due to owning my own business for the last 30 years and I HIGHLY recommend Alex based on responsiveness and cost!
