Pet Trusts

How We
Can Help

Pet Trusts are for those of us who are pet lovers. Our furry family member is an important and comforting part of life, and the care and wellbeing of our family member is essential.

Through Pet Trusts, we help you protect your furry children in case you become temporarily or permanently unable to care for the pet or if you are to pass away. You don’t have to worry about who will take care of your pets and how they will be cared for.

Protecting your Family and your Future

Jakob Legal - does Pet Trusts

Through a Pet Trust, you are providing for your pets if you are unable to!

Many people care about their pets as much or even more than their own children. While children hopefully grow up and move on; our furry children will never be able to speak for themselves.

I create Pet Trusts to enable the care of your critters when you are unable to. We designate the caregiver, provide for the use of funds for continued veterinary care and arrange your own instructions, in concrete legal language, for your pets’ continued care and well-being.

Can my pet be a beneficiary of a Pet Trust?

In an article in Forbes in 2015, Barbara Marquand writes about Pet Trusts:

“A trust, a legal entity that holds property and money for beneficiaries, is a good option to care for a pet because you can’t leave property, cash or life insurance money directly to an animal. … Your pet may be part of the family, but the law considers animals property”

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
