About Me

Thank you for taking time to review my profile on Avvo.com. I focus my practice on issues dealing with Asset Protection which include business law, estate planning, Florida probate,  guardianships, & Florida foreclosure defense.
In addition I have two legal blogs the first deals with
Florida estate planning http://www.FloridaEstatePlanningLawyerBlog.com and the second deals with NFA Gun Trusts.  Our firm website also has much information on Jacksonville Estate Planning , Jacksonville Probate and Jacksonville Foreclosure Defense
