REAL ESTATE LITIGATION: We can file and prosecute a foreclosure suit to protect your interests, if your debtor is not paying his mortgage. If there is a cloud on your title, we can file and pursue a quiet title suit in order to clear the title to your real estate. If you have purchased property via a tax deed, we can file and pursue a Quiet Title suit to give you marketable title. We can mediate and/or defend you in a foreclosure suit. If you are a lender holding a mortgage which has not been paid, we can bring and prosecute a foreclosure suit on your behalf.
LOAN RESTRUCTURE: If you are behind in your mortgage payments, we may be able to assist with loan restructure workout, modifications, short sale, or deed in lieu in defending the foreclosure. We are familiar with the government incentive programs (HAMP, HARP, HAFA, etc.), and will advise you if you may be a candidate for such incentives.
WILLS & TRUSTS: We can discuss and advise on your estate planning needs and prepare all necessary documentation to assure that your property and assets will be distributed according to your wishes and, if applicable, to assure that your children will have the proper guardian you choose. These services include but are not limited to the preparation of wills, durable power of attorneys, health care surrogate designations, living wills, and revocable trusts.
PROBATE & ESTATE ADMINISTRATION: We handle the probating of Florida estates. We will assist the family or personal representative to open, manage and settle the estate by giving guidance and preparing and filing all of the necessary notices and documents to probate a deceased person's Estate.
