When someone dies without an estate plan, or even with a valid will, estate assets cannot be distributed until the estate goes through a process known as probate. The probate process is often time-consuming, frustrating, and needlessly expensive. At Shelly A. Gallagher, PA, we design customized plans that allow families to avoid the Florida probate process entirely. However, we also help families navigate the probate maze and strive to make the process as stress-free as possible. We understand what you are going through during this difficult time, and can assist you through every step of the process.
