Since 1989, Fradley Law Firm, P.A., has served clients of Jupiter, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and communities throughout the state of Florida including but not limited to Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties.

Wills and Trusts

Drafting a will need not be expensive or complicated. The important thing is that your estate plan meets your individual needs. An Internet or do-it-yourself kit may leave out important considerations, or may not hold up under Florida law. Mr. Fradley sees to it that your wishes are stated in no uncertain terms with such legal instruments as:

  • A will to distribute property to heirs
  • A durable power of attorney for business affairs
  • A health care surrogate for medical decisions
  • A living will addressing end-of-life issues
  • The appointment of guardians for minor children
  • A premarital or postmarital agreement to preserve inheritance rights for children from a previous marriage

Don Fradley knows how to employ various types of trusts to preserve assets, to make special provisions, or to transfer wealth to heirs, using:

  • Revocable living trusts
  • Irrevocable trusts
  • Credit shelter trusts
  • Special needs trusts and conservatorships
  • Charitable trusts

Estate Administration and Probate Litigation

If you have been named as an executor, personal representative or trustee of an estate in Florida, Fradley Law Firm can assist you with the efficient settlement of your loved one's affairs. We can assist clients statewide with many duties that can be handled through the mail, and probate hearings can be conducted by telephone in most Florida counties. We help with all estate administration tasks, including:

  • Marshaling of assets
  • Liquidating assets and paying debts
  • Distributing the remainder to heirs
  • Filing state and federal income tax returns

Mr. Fradley is also an experienced probate lawyer. He represents heirs, excluded heirs, creditors or fiduciaries in claims of undue influence, invalid wills, misappropriation of funds or dereliction of administrative duties.
