Why choose PLG Law in Florida?
When it comes to securing your future and addressing complex legal matters in Florida, PLG Law stands out as the top choice. With decades of experience and a dedicated team of experts, we offer comprehensive solutions for estate planning, probate, Medicaid, asset protection, nursing home planning, corporate counsel, franchising, and real estate transactions.
Importance of estate planning
Estate planning holds a pivotal role in securing your peace of mind and ensuring your loved ones' well-being after your passing. PLG Law recognizes the multifaceted significance of estate planning in Florida, encompassing not only asset distribution but also the management of healthcare and financial affairs throughout your lifetime. Our mission is to craft efficient estate plans that align with your desires and are cost-effective. We specialize in facilitating the seamless transfer of assets to intended heirs, thus avoiding probate and saving substantial expenses.
Navigating the probate process
Probate, a court-supervised procedure for executing wills and distributing an estate's assets, entails several crucial steps. PLG Law's probate attorneys handle these tasks efficiently, expediting the probate process while minimizing estate costs. Our services encompass identifying and appraising estate assets, notifying potential creditors, settling debts and taxes, resolving claims, managing or selling property, and ensuring proper tax filings. We assist executors and personal representatives in fulfilling their duties, ensuring a smooth probate process and addressing any potential issues.
A Florida probate may be required whenever the deceased was domiciled in Florida or lived elsewhere but owned property in Florida. Depending on the size of the estate, either a formal or summary administration may be required. No matter the size or complexity of the probate, PLG Law can manage the process expertly and efficiently, drawing upon decades of experience to help ensure our clients’ needs are met.
Medicaid laws in Florida
Florida Medicaid is a partnership between the State of Florida and the federal government that provides healthcare assistance to qualifying individuals.
The laws surrounding Medicaid and Medicaid for long-term care can be very confusing. At PLG Law, we understand that you may have no idea whether or not you qualify, how to apply, or whether or not you will be penalized for transferring or gifting assets.
Our law firm is here not just to help you understand the laws and regulations surrounding Medicaid, but also to help you plan for your estate accordingly without jeopardizing your right to benefits.
Don’t wait to plan for your future - setting up an estate plan now and getting your affairs in order brings peace of mind.
Asset protection for long-term care
Long-term care, particularly in nursing homes, presents significant financial challenges. PLG Law's asset protection attorneys offer strategies to safeguard your assets from the high costs of long-term care. We conduct comprehensive financial reviews, advising on trusts, asset transfers, gifting, and other methods to ensure Medicaid eligibility while preserving your wealth. Our goal is to help you receive the necessary care without impoverishing yourself or compromising your legacy.
If you live in Florida and have limited income, you may be able to qualify for Medicaid for long-term care if you have a limited number of assets, too. The dilemma, then, is being able to preserve your assets while also qualifying for Medicaid long-term care. There are a number of ways that you may be able to protect your assets including:
- Turning cash into nonexempt assets, such as vehicles, a larger home;
- Creating an asset protection trust or pooled income trust;
- Transferring assets to your spouse; and
- Give monetary gifts before care is required by planning for your estate.
The above steps should only be engaged in with the help of a legal professional. Asset protection is a very complex field, requiring detailed knowledge of Medicaid and financial laws.
Nursing home planning
Planning for nursing home care, whether for yourself, a spouse, or a loved one, can be a daunting task. PLG Law's nursing home planning attorneys guide you through this process, alleviating stress and providing peace of mind. Early planning offers several advantages, such as eliminating pressure on loved ones, organizing your financial affairs, understanding the costs, and securing Medicaid eligibility. We empower you to make informed decisions about your future care, ensuring your preferences are honored.
