About this firm

The firm primarily deals with controversies involving estates, trusts, wills and guardianships in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater. BaskinFleece routinely deals with estate planning and litigation matters, including issues concerning the validity of wills and trusts, breach of fiduciary duty, lack of capacity, spousal rights, creditors' rights and anything related to wills, trusts and guardianships. The vast experience in dealing with and resolving these specific issues has given the firm a wealth of knowledge - which other less involved firms may not have. It is that knowledge base that sets BaskinFleece apart from the other firms and attorneys practicing in estate planning and wills, plus trust and probate litigation and related areas of law.

BaskinFleece handles trust litigation, probate litigation, and guardianship litigation cases in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa and throughout Florida, from the pre-suit stages - including mediation - all the way through trial, both jury and non-jury, and at the appellate level, if necessary. In addition, the firm assists clients with estate planning from the drafting of a simple will to complex tax planning and wealth transfer matters for high-asset estates. BaskinFleece handles all aspects of probate and trust administration as well, accomplishing the process capably, competently, and in a timely fashion for the benefit of heirs, beneficiaries and all parties involved.

BaskinFleece also provides legal services related to real estate and business law, both transactional and litigation.

In all matters, the client is and remains the firm's main focus. Aspects of litigation such as cost, emotional impact and timeliness are all important to the client, and the firm strives for an end result which leaves the client feeling that justice was accomplished in an efficient and effective manner.

    Jay helped my sister and I with a trust and estate situation we initially thought was hopeless. He turned the tables on this particularly sleazy lawyer in such a knowledgeable, polite yet confident manner, we were amazed. This is a very ethical office with clear communication about policies and fees. If you have an important case and need the best, I would recommend Jay without reservation.

    They don't listen well; were pricey; went back and did the same work for the same information I had provided them. I had printed copies of public information that they spent hours researching and charging me for and I had done the leg work and just needed legal representation to take this matter to court. I paid over $1,000 for information I already knew.
