ESTATE PLANNING • ASSET PROTECTION

Helping You Plan For The Future And Cope During Times Of Crisis

Compassion and understanding are two qualities that are not often found in a law firm. At the Mattar Firm, our job is to make sure that the needs of our clients are met and they get the peace of mind they need to move forward in their lives. The services that we offer such as estate planning are critically important to every client while they are alive and after they have passed on. We help clients to protect their assets during their lifetime, and then make sure those assets get distributed based on their final wishes after they have passed on. 

Getting You The Answers You Need

Our clients have plenty of questions, and it is our job to answer those questions and completely as possible. When you have questions about protecting your wealth and being able to leave it to your children, we have an asset protection lawyer give you the details. If you are concerned about Medicaid taking your assets to pay for your assisted living arrangement, then we have a Medicaid planning attorney on hand to help you make those arrangements.

We get a lot of questions every day, and we always work hard to provide the right answers. How does my divorce affect my estate planning? Can I protect my assets from creditors and Medicaid? What happens to my legal and medical matters if I become disabled or incapacitated? What should I do to make sure my special needs dependent is taken care of after I have passed away? Do I really need a legal team for the probate process or administering a trust? All of these questions are very important, and we give comprehensive answers to these questions every day.

Handling Medicaid

When it comes time for you or someone you love to enter an assisted living facility, you will have to deal with the Medicaid application process. Our crisis and non-crisis Medicaid planning services will help you to prepare for that day when you need to submit a Medicaid application, and we will help you to protect your assets from being liquidated by Medicaid to pay for your care.

The Medicaid application process is complicated and does require an experienced legal professional to be done properly. There are many rules regarding Medicaid eligibility that could cause you to have to wait weeks, months, or even years for approval. We will examine all of your asset transfers from the previous five years and help you to make the right decision when it comes entering your Medicaid application.

You and your family should never try to do your Medicaid planning on your own. Let the legal professionals at the Mattar Firm be the ones who listen closely to your concerns and then put together a Medicaid plan that meets your needs.

Estate Planning

Are you familiar with the Florida probate process? If you have done no estate planning, then your assets will be at the mercy of the probate courts. You will not have any idea where your assets will be distributed, nor will you have any protection in place to make sure that your beneficiaries get the distributions that you want them to have. Without estate planning, you have no control over your assets while you are alive and after you have passed away.

We are estate planning professionals and we are ready to put together a customized estate plan that will meet all of your needs. You don’t need to be wealthy to need an estate plan. If you have a home and financial assets, then you will want to protect them now and for your family after you have passed on. Through various legal and financial tools such as trusts, wills, and LLCs, we will make sure that your estate is safe. We can also help put together a special needs trust that will allow you to care for your special needs dependent after you have passed away.

Asset Protection

Most people do not think that they need to visit an asset protection lawyer until they get sued for financial damages and wind up losing their home, their car, their retirement account, and their bank accounts. Asset protection is a service we recommend every Floridian take advantage of right now before it is too late. Once you get hit with a lawsuit, there is no way to protect your assets from being taken.

An asset protection lawyer can also a key component to Medicaid planning. As long as your assets are exposed, Medicaid can start emptying your bank account and liquidating your real estate once you enter into an assisted living arrangement. In order to preserve the assets you have worked so hard to build and be able to one day leave them for your children, you need to start an asset protection program right now.

Speaking Up For Your Rights When You Cannot Speak Yourself

An important part of what we do is to put together legal arrangements that allow others to speak for you if you are unable to speak for yourself. If you are involved in an accident or get suddenly struck down by a disease, you will be unable to make important decisions that could affect your future. We will put together a power of attorney and a health care proxy for you that will tell the Florida probate court exactly who you want making decisions on your behalf if you are unable to make them yourself.

Reaching Out To The Community

Would you like to speak to an asset protection lawyer and learn more about how to shield your assets? Then you should get involved in one of our community workshops that we offer free of charge.
