About this firm

Dealing with estate planning and probate issues can be challenging. Whether you are just beginning to contemplate what your estate planning goals are or you have just discovered that a loved one has passed away and that it was his or her intention that you be the one to handle his or her affairs, having a knowledgeable, capable guide there to help you sort through all of the details can help you have peace of mind.

At The Charles Law Offices, our Clearwater elder law attorney brings together a deep understanding of the laws that apply to estate planning. From tax issues to qualifying for government benefits, we are able to construct estate plans that balance all of the necessities of estate planning to allow your intentions to be honored.
