Get Your Will Drafted

Low Flat Fees Available for all Estate Planning

A last will and testament, or simply a "will," is a legal document created while you are alive but used upon your death to pass your assets to your named heirs.

It can help you protect your family and your wishes by indicating:

  • Who or what entity receives which assets
  • Who should care for your minor children
  • Who will ensure the terms of the will are honored

When you hire Powell, Jackman, Stevens & Ricciardi, P.A., you are sure to have a trusted legal professional working on your case from start to finish. Our estate planning lawyers in Fort Myers can walk you through the process and help you make carefully planned decisions for your family's future.

What happens if I don't leave a will?

In the state of Florida, any estate left without a will is divided according to "intestacy" laws. Your property and assets will go to your closest relatives, namely your spouse and children. If the court cannot find living relatives, even distant ones through marriage, the state will take ownership of your estate. Although you can create a will for yourself without the help of a lawyer, most people have enough complexity in their estate to warrant legal advice.

Get 70+ Years' Collective Experience on Your Side

A trained estate planning attorney can take all of the guesswork out of drafting a will so that you can be more confident that the document will hold up in court if challenged upon your death. For example, if any family member is not named as a beneficiary in a large estate, there is a high likelihood that there will be a court challenge. In this situation, hiring a Fort Myers wills lawyer could be crucial, and a well-drafted will is exceptionally important.

At Your Advocates, we will help you get your simple will drafted for a low flat rate. This is in tribute of our clients and to meeting their needs. Our goal is to ensure that we give you the satisfactory service that your family needs. Give us a call to find out how we can help you establish a well-drafted will!
