Wills, Trusts And Other Estate Planning Instruments

Regardless of your age, your marital status or the size of your estate, the Oviedo law firm of Cloninger & Files, Attorneys at Law, can assist in originating or updating estate planning instruments that accurately reflect your wishes.

It's Never Too Early To Prepare Your Estate

Our team of attorneys can draft a last will and testament, revocable or irrevocable trust, living will, living trust or power of attorney that ensures your family's future financial security after your passing — and spares loved ones the inconvenience of expensive, lengthy probate proceedings.

You have probably come across websites advertising free wills. Although the idea of drafting a will on your own may sound appealing, the fact is that there are numerous factors regarding your estate, your health care directives and tax issues that may be left unresolved without the guidance of a skilled attorney.

We listen carefully to the specifics of what you want to accomplish with a will or trust and advise you how to best achieve your objectives. Your goals will be spelled out in ways that later promote smoothly executed distributions of assets and property to beneficiaries. We explain the cost differences between probating simple wills vs. administration of trusts in a way the client can understand.

At Cloninger & Files, we can also be of service during estate administration if one or more relatives of a decedent decide to challenge the validity of a will on grounds of fraud, undue influence or incompetency.
