The Coleman Law Firm offers assistance in estate administration and probate matters across Florida.
When a person dies without a will, their assets and debts enter into probate. In probate, the deceased person's debts are paid and any remaining assets are then distributed to their relatives and descendants. Estate administration includes the probate process as well as any non-probate transfers of the deceased's assets, such as:
-Assets held in trusts
-Qualified retirement plans
Attorney Coleman helps families through these troubling times and often represents their interests in probate court. He works tirelessly to ensure that the deceased's assets are distributed properly and assists in resolving outstanding debts, managing the money and setting up instruments to ensure future financial stability.
Attorney Jeffrey Coleman has spent over 30 years representing those from the Pinellas and Hillsborough counties with a standard of excellence across his many practice areas.
We know our probate clients often are in the process of dealing with grief and loss and we provide the delicate assistance necessary to ease the probate process.
