Preparing For The Future

Being prepared for the future is more than just planning for retirement. From determining whether a will or trust most meets your needs to knowing how such documents affect an entire family, only a trusted attorney can guide you through that process. At Akin Law P.A., I can help make sure you are truly prepared.

Peace Of Mind

Providing for your surviving family members isn't only about finances. It's about taking the burden off of loved ones when it comes to making decisions or going through a lengthy probate litigation process. It's about providing them with the time and ability to grieve without the additional stress of legal issues. I also understand the delicate nature of family dynamics and can help walk you through how each document and decision will impact the family landscape.

My advanced tax degree also gives me the added insight to help you understand how the decisions you make will affect your taxes. When it comes to planning ahead, there are some keys areas in which I can help, including:

  • Wills: The importance of a will isn't determined by your age or wealth. A will is a critical document that everyone needs, regardless of your current health or financial status.
  • Trusts: In Florida, a wide range of trusts exist to help protect your heirs and beneficiaries, such as revocable, charitable remainder and special needs trusts.
  • Establishing guardianship: If you have been named a guardian, or you are looking to begin the process of finding a guardian for a loved one, I can help.
  • Powers of attorney: Choose the individual you would like to act on your behalf if you are incapacitated and cannot make decisions about your finances and property.
  • Living wills/health care surrogacy: Leave instructions on your preferences for end-of-life care.
  • Elder law: I help families during times of transition, such as a parent moving in with a child, as well as with Medicaid planning. I am also VA accredited benefits advisor.
  • Marital agreements: I can draft anything from prenuptial agreements to qualified domestic relations orders (QDROs).
