Probate & Estate
Losing a loved one can be devastating emotionally and financially. If a loved one has passed away leaving property and/or other assets in their name, Toni Gentry, Esq., CPA is here to help you through the probate process from beginning to end.
When an individual dies (“the Decedent”) leaving assets that are not jointly owned and do not pass automatically to someone else, a court must decide who is legally entitled to have those assets (“the Beneficiaries”). Until the court makes that determination, the assets are collected and saved for later distribution to the beneficiaries (“the Estate”).
The court will appoint a representative (“ the Personal Representative”) who is responsible for collecting the Estate assets, paying creditors’ claims and distributing assets to the beneficiaries. The Personal Representative needs the representation and guidance of a Florida attorney throughout the Probate process to ensure that the Estate is administered according to Florida law.

Listen To What Our Clients Say...
Because It's Our Client's That Matter Most
Yale was great... affordable, accessible, responsive and knowledgeable. He spent time with me one-on-one and achieved a positive outcome for my family and me.
With his many years of experience, Mr. Lewis was very knowledgeable in response to my case. While he acted as my council, he was prompt in his responses and clear about what had to be done, saving me time and money..
If you need an attorney to tell you the truth and get the job done, Mr. Lewis is definitely the right attorney. I have been a Paralegal in the legal field for more than 5 years and have met many attorneys and Mr. Lewis is by far one of the most well-versed attorneys in his field that I have ever met.
Debunking Some Real Estate Myths
I have a real estate broker so I don't need a lawyer.
A real estate broker is paid to close deals, not to look out for your interests. They are not qualified to offer legal advice and may not be too concerned about the finer details of your contract. Legal advice from an experienced real estate attorney protects your interests and helps avoid significant issues down the road.
Real estate attorneys are too expensive.
The pricing is determined by the firm you choose, but there are many quality real estate attorneys that perform basic real estate services like title searches, contract reviews, and closings for very reasonable fees. In any case, it is much more affordable then ending up in costly litigation due to issues that were easily avoidable.
Lawyers just complicate the process.
A good real estate attorney should actually make your transaction go more smoothly. We reduce the chances of last-second surprises that delay or disrupt your transaction by doing our due-diligence up front.
