Last Will and Testament

How We
Can Help

We will help you write your Last Will And Testament and also to develop the plan that best protects your assets and your family’s future while maintaining family privacy and keeping control of your wishes. If you’re like most people, you’ll want to plan so that the State doesn’t make these important decisions for you!

Protecting your Family and your Future

Jakob Legal helps you prepare your Last Will And Testament

Can I prepare my own Last Will And Testament? I want to do it myself.

Wills must conform to Florida law and must clearly and unambiguously reflect your wishes. While it may be tempting to use do-it-yourself forms, remember that a Last Will and Testament is just that — it’s the last thing you’ll do.

If a mistake is discovered after your death, you don’t get a second chance to make things right! This is not an area in which to be penny-wise and pound foolish.

Why a Simple Will is not enough!

Your life is more than a “Simple Will!” A basic Will does not avoid the probate process, control your non-probate property, or provide for any special planning concerns, such as estate taxes or trusts. The Will is just one piece of the Total Estate Planning picture.

We develop personalized Last Will and Testament, Trusts, Powers of Attorney and Estate Plans to meet your individual needs and goals. We will help you develop the plan that best protects your assets and your family’s future; while maintaining family privacy and keeping control of your wishes.

Why do I need a last will and testament?

Many people do not believe they need a Last Will And Testament; especially if their assets are modest or they do not believe they are in the stage of life where estate planning is yet necessary.

Everyone needs an estate plan. We will listen carefully to your goals and circumstances and will suggest the best methods for structuring your family’s financial future. If you die without a Will (intestate), the State of Florida determines how your assets get divided, and who your beneficiaries will be. A judge then decides who handles the administration of your estate. Click here for information on Florida Intestacy law.

For those with minor children, a Will is the only way to appoint a guardian for your child in the event of your death.

We help clients untangle their complications and concerns and help build paths to stable futures. Assisting clients throughout South Florida, we maintain flexible appointment options and reasonable legal fees. Take a look at what previous clients have to say about us here!

Andrea was absolutely wonderful in helping set up my parents' estate as they were going through several health issues. ... She accommodated my family as I was in town for only a few days to help my parents and she made sure that the entire estate planning process was completed. Her caring and personable attitude made this difficult time a little easier. She even spent additional time answering follow up questions over several different phone calls. I highly recommend Andrea to anyone seeking a thoughtful professional estate attorney who truly cares about the families she works with.read more

Andrea Jakob was great in helping us work through our health care surrogacy, will and trust. Ours was well overdue, we... hadn't done our will since our children were small and now they have their own children. She helped us think through every aspect. She listened to our ideas, gave us her opinion and recommendations and created what was best for us and our family. Andrea is smart, very knowledgeable about estate planning, she is funny and quite personable. She truly wants to do what is best for you at the time you are with her and for the future. We highly recommend her!read more

It has been a pleasure working with Andrea. From the very beginning, she made it comfortable and relatively easy to... talk about challenging topics such as wills, estates, and trusts. She laid out the plan in an organized and friendly manner, explaining things "at my level" so that I could understand, and I never felt rushed. Not only is she very smart and professional, she also has a warm customer service approach, taking care to offer treats such as hot tea. I recommend her highly and I look forward to our continued relationship.read more

Let me start by saying that I normally am not one to write a review. But Andrea Jakob help and expertise definitely... deserve high praise! She was so helpful in getting my wife and my wills and trust set up. Something that we really appreciated was just how down to earth she was. There was absolutely no stuffiness in her manner. In fact, after our first couple of visits, I pretty much regarded her as a very knowledgeable friend. She really knows her business and helped us feel comfortable when speaking with her. I appreciated that she was more than willing to explained something to me more than once and helped to clarify any questions I had. My wife and I are very happy and impressed with her work and dedication. We strongly recommend her to any one seeking help with setting up their wills and trusts.read more
