Probate
Guiding you through the complex process of Florida probate
The process of probate typically accompanies a situation involving painful emotional loss. Lisa I. Glassman, P.A. can ease the stress of probating your loved one's estate and guides executors and beneficiaries through the complex process.

The process of probate:
Most executors have never or only rarely probated a will and know little about the process. We can guide you through the complex probate process, including:
-Filing the will with the appropriate Florida county probate court
-Developing the best strategy for fairly and expeditiously probating the estate
-Finding and collecting assets
-Closing and opening bank accounts
-Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
-Paying estate taxes
-Valuing, managing, preserving and liquidating the estate
-Locating beneficiaries
-Hiring experts, when appropriate

Valuing and managing the estate:
Lisa I. Glassman, P.A. assists executors with the arduous process of collecting, managing, valuing, protecting and liquidating assets of an estate. We have a team of experts available to assist in every aspect of estate probate. When appropriate, the firm calls upon accountants, financial advisors, real estate agents, property managers, and other professionals to assist with executor duties. We can access expert opinions about unique assets such as antiques, rare books, automobiles and other collectibles for accurate valuation, management and possible sale.

Probate disputes:
Even for seemingly straightforward estates, disputes between beneficiaries sometimes arise. Our professional courtroom presence can calm the emotionally charged process of probating a challenged will or disputed executor or judicial decision. When it is in the best interest of our clients to preserve cordial familial relationships, we are adept at mediating disputes. That said, we can assertively defend our clients' beneficiary rights within the Florida probate court when necessary.
