Proper estate planning will ensure that those you love are provided and cared for after your death. It puts a concrete plan in place and leaves a legacy for your heirs, which is ultimately what matters most. Despite the nearly universal desire to leave a legacy and provide for your loved one’s after your death, most individuals are loathe to discuss death and, in turn, estate planning. Sadly, it is the living that will suffer as a result of poor or nonexistent estate planning.
Our Gainesville estate planning attorneys can assist you in a wide array of estate planning tools. Our clients can utilize a will to name who will receive their assets, as well as nominating a guardian for their minor children. We also assist in the creation of revocable trusts, which can do everything a will does and more. With this sort of trust, your estate can avoid probate, thus creating immense tax and time benefits. For high wealth clients, we can assist in creating irrevocable trusts that offer even further tax benefits.
As we age, it is vital to put certain advance directives into place. Our Gainesville estate planning attorneys ensure our older clients have health care proxies or durable power of attorneys in the event of their incapacitation. We also help them to develop retirement, special needs, supplemental, or Medicaid trusts so that they are provided for in their old age.

Our Gainesville bankruptcy attorneys will evaluate your debt, assets, and goals to uncover whether bankruptcy is right for you and, if so, what type of bankruptcy will best alleviate your debts.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common bankruptcy. Our clients can obtain complete erasure of their unsecured debts in a Chapter 7 action. We work with our clients to evaluate what property they may lose in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and how to best protect it.
Chapter 13 offers an alternative means for individuals and sole proprietorships to obtain relief from oppressive debt. Chapter 13 is commonly referred to as the reorganization or restructuring chapter because it allows debtors to essentially restructure their debts into manageable repayment plans with better terms, such as lower interest rates. If you cannot qualify for Chapter 7 or wish to maintain certain non-exempt property, we can assist you in successfully filing and completing a Chapter 13 plan. With the help of our experienced bankruptcy attorneys, your bright financial future is waiting right around the corner.
Employees across the U.S. are protected by numerous complex laws and regulations.

We handle wage and overtime issues, ensuring employees are fairly compensated for all their hard work and not subjected to retaliation when they confront an underpaying employer.

Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits provide millions of Americans who are disabled, aged, or blind with the assistance they need. SSI was created by the Social Security Act to help the elderly, blind, or disabled who are most in need. These benefits can provide the necessary monthly monies to pay for food, housing, and shelter. SSD benefits, on the other hand, are designed to benefit those who have worked and paid into the Social Security system, but who have become disabled and are in need of assistance. SSD is only available for those with sufficient work credits, unlike SSI which is open to anyone.
While SSI and SSD benefits can offer a major boon for disabled or aged individuals, applying for these benefits is complex and often requires multiple attempts. Our experienced SSI and SSD attorneys will navigate you through the benefit application process and work to see that you receive the benefits to which you are entitled.
