Do I need a lawyer for Florida Probate?
In the majority of probate cases, a lawyer is needed to complete the process in a timely, and legally efficient manner. Except for “Disposition Without Administration” for very small estates (See Florida Statute Section 735.301) and those estates in which the Personal representative is the sole beneficiary, an attorney is required. Even if an attorney is not required it is important to remember that the probate process has many technical rules. That can be very frustrating for someone to probate an estate without an experienced West Palm Beach probate lawyer. Also, without a legal background, there are many pitfalls which can result in beneficiaries not receiving their inheritance for all time and free from creditors. Consequently, the assistance of an attorney is always worthwhile.
