A Client-Oriented Approach

Luis E. Barreto & Associates, P.A. provides a wide range of estate planning and probate services to clients throughout South Florida. We take a client-oriented approach to our practice by providing customized solutions to every client’s needs.

Our firm provides advice, services, and representation in the following areas:

Litigation — Representation of plaintiffs and defendants in all types of estate-related litigation, including Probate Litigation, Guardianship Litigation, and Trust Litigation.

Appeals — Assistance in filing appeals as well as defending against appeals relating to wills, trusts, probate, and other estate-related court decisions.

Estate Planning — The comprehensive process of planning your estate and protecting your wealth through the creation of wills, trusts, and other estate planning vehicles. We can also review existing wills, trusts, and other documents to ensure they will provide you with the results you desire.

Trusts — Establishment of all types of trusts, advice and services to trustees, and preparation of reports and tax returns.

Wills — Along with assisting in the creation of wills as an aspect of the estate planning process, we also assist clients in contesting wills. When there are strong grounds for thinking a decedent was unduly influenced or not of sound mind, a will may be contested. Our attorneys represent clients in will contests involving undue influence, lack of capacity, and elective shares.

Probate Administration — Efficient and cost-effective probate administration advice and services for personal representatives. Our attorneys will work with you to identify the specific results you’re looking for and focus our efforts on achieving them.

Guardianship — Establishment of guardianships, advice and counsel on guardianship matters, and preparation of annual reports to the Court.

Elder Law — Estate planning, Medicaid planning, healthcare planning, asset protection, Social Security, and other concerns for seniors.

The key to our law firm’s success is our ability to provide the right solution for each client. Before we write a will, we thoroughly review the client’s goals, financial situation, and desires for family members. When providing probate administration services, we pay close attention to every detail and the specific needs of our clients. In litigation involving trusts, probate, or guardianships, we are tenacious advocates who work to achieve our client’s goals.

Whatever your estate needs, the law office of Luis E. Barreto & Associates, P.A. will work to provide the best solution for you and your family.
