Florida Family Wealth Transfer Attorney

Advanced planning can prevent significant problems later

Estate planning often stops short by describing how assets will transfer to the next generation, but without preparing the next generation for the responsibilities that come with acquired wealth. This can result in poorly prepared beneficiaries, disputes over assets or the future of a family business. It is important that those who will be the recipients of assets are educated and ready to take on new roles and responsibilities as the family financial dynamics shift.

Sonia M. Pawluc assists clients in creating comprehensive wealth transfer strategies, with careful thought given to each family’s individual situation. This assures that assets are managed effectively during one’s lifetime while protecting the financial interest of the family and loved ones after a death. If businesses are part of your estate, their structures should be examined in conjunction with your estate planning documents.
