Revocable Living Trust – The cornerstone of a well-designed estate plan is a well drafted Revocable Living Trust. A revocable living trust is a document that will allow you and your family to plan for the disposition of your property should you become incapacitated or when you pass away, without the need for probate. Assets that are usually included in a revocable living trust include real estate, bank accounts, investment or retirement accounts, and anything else of value you possess and wish to pass on to your heirs. A revocable living trust will give you the additional freedom of having the ability to change it or amend it as your needs change and evolve throughout your life.

When preparing a revocable living trust to fit your needs and goals and protect your assets and loved ones, there are several factors to be considered and decisions that will have to be made. For example, you will have to think about who will care for you if you become disabled. You will have to determine who will pay bills and manage your affairs if you are unable to do so yourself. If you have minor children you will have to consider who will care for them and how you want your assets distributed among your loved ones. If privacy is a concern, a well-tailored trust allows you to protect your assets and maintain its ownership private. As important, when preparing a revocable living trust tax implications should be considered and addressed.

In order to create a comprehensive estate plan that will cover most potential eventualities and will afford you the peace of mind of knowing that your family and assets will be protected, we also offer a series of other estate planning tools to go along with a revocable living trust. After consultation with you we will be able to determine if there is any need for additional documents such as:

Durable Power of Attorney – A durable power of attorney is a document in which you appoint someone you trust as your attorney-in- fact, who is vested with the power to handle your assets, bank accounts, investments, and real estate, should you become incapacitated.

A durable power of attorney is often vital as it may avoid the need for your loved ones to have to petition the guardianship court to seek the legal authority to act on your behalf to pay your bills, manage your accounts/investments and protect your assets.

Healthcare Surrogate – A designation of health care surrogate is a document in which you appoint someone you trust as your health care surrogate, who is vested with the power to make health care decisions on your behalf should you become incapacitated.  A very important
aspect of this particular designation is the power to decide when to withdraw medical procedures.

The designation of health care surrogate is equally vital as it may avoid the need for your loved ones to have to petition the guardianship court to seek the legal authority to make those health-related decisions on your behalf during terms of incapacity. Living Will – A living will is a document in which you make a written declaration specifying your intentions and directions should you encounter a period in your life where you are incapacitated and you are being kept alive solely by artificial, life-prolonging procedures and doctors have made the determination that you have no medically reasonable opportunity for recovery.  The typical instruction contained in a living will is the removal from life-prolonging procedures, but that is not necessarily the choice and direction that can be mandated by a living will in Florida.

Pre-need Guardianship designation – A pre-need guardian designation is a document in which you can designate and appoint and individual, your pre-need guardian, to serve as your legal guardian should you become incapacitated.  You also have the opportunity to designate and appoint a pre-need guardian for your minor children in the event you become incapacitated or upon your death.  Should you choose not to or fail to designate a pre-need guardian for yourself and/or your minor children, a guardianship court will make that decision for you in the event of your incapacity.

Special Needs & Qualified Income Trusts – These trusts will allow you to preserve and protect your eligibility for certain government benefits while still protecting and preserving your assets and income so they may be used for your care and benefit.

Our experienced attorneys will sit down with you and explain the need for any additional estate planning tools that will allow you to accomplish your exact goals.

  • You have worked hard all your life to provide for your family. Now is the time to prepare for how your family will be cared for the day you pass or become disabled.
  • Determine how you want your assets handled and ensure a quick transfer of your assets according to your wishes.

  • We have worked with high net worth individuals to structure complex estate plans involving the transfer of business and personal assets with appropriate contingencies to prevent the dissipation of the estate’s assets and preserve and protect the estate for future generations.

Y. Diaz

Simona Burshteyn, Esq was extremely responsive. She made herself available to take my random and frantic phone calls, which was extremely helpful for my case and very much appreciated. In fact, I feel it was a huge factor in the outcome of two separate issues.  Additionally,  Simona came up with a great strategy that was both financially and legally effective for me. I was so pleased with her overall service and pricing that I have referred her to my clients and will continue to do so in the future. She has earned my confidence and I am so thankful to have found her.

J.M.

My experience and relationship with First Legal is spot on.  This law firm is professional, persistent,  reliable,  cost-efficient , trustworthy and has great integrity.   I highly recommend First Legal to represent clients dealing with mortgage issues. They're handling my case professionally and have positive results.   They have excellent customer service and their network is user-friendly.   Again,  mortgage issues,  First Legal is your representation.

Albert

I was extremely impressed with Simona Burshteyn.I was referred to her by a family member of mine to complete our bankruptcy process. Simona was extremely thoughtful, compassionate, competent, and empathetic. She truly cares about people and it shows in her practice. She explained the entire process in a way that I could understand. I did not feel "alone" in the bankruptcy because she was there every step of the way. She has been a tremendous blessing to me and my family.

EC

I was having financial difficulties and a friend recommended I see Renzo. He not only helped me with my mortgage problems, but from the start he was understanding of my situation, was always available to meet with me and provided clear answers and explanations to all my questions.

Dana Jones

Renzo is a great attorney to deal with, dealt with in the past and delivered great results.

Antonio Cuello

Words cannot express our gratitude to the company First Legal, P.A. Simona Burshetyn was great, a truly excellent professional – thank you so much for your help with my case! Your support and prompt attention to guide us through every single step was extraordinary, alongside your priceless friendship and care. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you again.

Marlene and Calogero Tirone

What can you say to these two great people when they save you home, all that you have worked for, your dreams  and ultimately, a good part of your life ???? You can thank them, of course, but, is that enough ??? Those of you who know what it means to spend months and months unable to sleep, worrying that you are going to lose your home, perhaps will understand me better...Renzo gave me hope, Dayna gave me confidence and both of them gave me my home back.... This young lawyer with lots of wisdom, with humble, simple approach and no big promises comes into your life and tells you to trust him and his team and there is something in his voice that convinces you...it is the desire to save your home, the energy to make it happen....if you have one chance, Renzo will grab it and will do anything in his power to make you successful! Dayna comes in between, she holds your shoulders, she stops you from collapsing, you would not make it otherwise...and you wait and you pray.....and one day...they call and  tell you "how about you are approved ?" and you start crying and they cry with you....Did you think lawyers like this exist anymore ??? This is the most of everything a professional should do and the most of what is expected of all professionals. Besides saving my home, I also learnt a lot.....I learned that not all lawyers are the same and I am so happy I believed in these two  !!!! Renzo and Dayna, and your team, I thank you !!!
