At My Pink Lawyer®, we know that women lead busy lives, and keeping up with a family’s day-to-day tasks is enough of a burden without considering the long-term future. That is why we built our estate planning practice on direct, friendly, no-nonsense service, taking the worry and confusion out of complex legal issues.
We want to help YOU make the best decisions possible to care and provide for your family, even after you’re gone. After all, the planning we do is not for our “stuff” or even ourselves in many instances. We plan because we love our families and understand that they will have to live with the decisions we made for their benefit when we had the opportunity to do so.
What Is Your Situation?
The goal of wise estate planning is to leave behind a LOVING LEGACY after you’re gone, not a mess!
Many women have experienced the nightmare of a loved one who left behind a mess, whether from disorganization, a poorly written plan, family disagreements, high post-death administration costs, or unintended consequences. We do not want YOUR LASTING LEGACY to be a nightmare for your family. Instead, we assist our clients in leaving behind well-laid plans—thoughtful, organized, and efficient plans—for their families.
We’re on a mission at My Pink Lawyer® to inspire, empower and assist Florida women like you to make educated, proactive, and smart planning decisions for your family and other loved ones.
Although estate planning can seem overwhelming to many women, you will never feel intimidated as we work together to design a plan that protects your family and carries out your long-term wishes. We are down-to-earth lawyers and will always provide you with practical and effective Florida estate planning advice. And you will never be pressured during the estate planning process.
Our process is simple: we begin by providing free, no-obligation initial consultations to discuss your unique estate planning goals. Once we know more about your situation and desires, we will quote you a flat fee for your planning needs that is agreed to in advance, ensuring that you will never encounter any hidden costs or unforeseen legal bills.
How We Can Help
At My Pink Lawyer®, we assist our clients with the following legal matters:
- Estate Planning, Wills, and Living Trusts. We assist a variety of clients—especially Florida women, couples, mothers, and widows—whose primary concern is making sure their loved ones are protected throughout their lifetimes. Your Florida estate planning can include wills, trusts, naming guardians for your children, powers of attorney, and medical directives, as appropriate. You’ll receive our unbiased, honest, and practical advice in designing and implementing the best estate plan to care for yourself and your family. Plus, we will build a lasting relationship to ensure your family’s needs are covered throughout your lifetime.
- Guardianships for Minors and Developmentally Disabled Adults. Naming guardians in writing for your minor and disabled children is imperative for every Florida mother. By naming guardians for your young children, you ensure that your kids are raised by the people you choose, rather than by a judge who doesn’t know you or your family. In addition, Florida parents lose their financial, legal, and medical protections over an adult child with developmental disabilities when he or she turns 18. We help parents in Florida become guardian advocates over their adult children who have special needs so they can continue making critical decisions for their children into adulthood.
- Death Administration, Probate, and Trusts. We assist family members who have lost a Florida loved one with an orderly transition of assets from one generation to the next. This can include a Florida probate or trust administration and termination.
- Special Needs Planning for Parents. Parents who have children with special needs have difficult decisions to make during the estate planning process. On one hand, parents want to leave their child with everything they need to live comfortably, but they also want to ensure that their disabled child remains eligible for public assistance benefits. We advise parents on creating special needs trusts or supplemental needs trusts to protect their disabled child’s future inheritance while also preserving their public assistance benefits. While we do not handle Social Security disability cases, we will be happy to refer you to colleagues we trust who can help you.
What Do YOU Want to Accomplish?
There are many firms that will take a one-size-fits-all approach to estate planning, selling as many financial tools and products as they can to their clients…whether they need them or not. Many people who walk through our doors have been told that they “need” a trust, are paying yearly fees for services that provide no real benefits, or have received other information that does not pertain to their own circumstances. Unfortunately, some firms are focused on how much they can make, rather than what is the best fit for you and your family.
As women, wives, and mothers ourselves, we understand your most important priority with your planning is protecting your loved ones. We will help you organize your affairs to make things as simple and seamless as possible for your family. From setting up trusts, appointing powers of attorney, or naming guardians for your kids, the agenda is always focused on YOU, never on us.
You may not need an attorney; if that is the case, we will tell you so. We will always give you a practical perspective on your situation, and we will NEVER sell you or your family any planning tools that you don’t need.
Each of our estate plans is professionally drafted and prepared just for YOU and can be customized to meet your changing life circumstances. We don't use cookie cutter forms or copy and paste from one client to another like some law firms.
Most clients take advantage of our VIP Membership service, allowing you to meet with us annually to update your estate plans and take advantage of discounts on future legal fees. Membership includes lifelong assistance with your estate matters, giving you peace of mind while we stay ahead of potential issues that could affect your assets and future plans.
Let Us Know How We Can Help!
We do not believe in letting our clients wait to begin planning their futures. We return phone calls and emails promptly (with our VIP members treated to priority access), and you will not find friendlier folks to work with.
