4.5 stars 20 totalReview Marc Soss
Like us you may be "new" permanent residents of FL and have decided you had better get certain things in order like your will, trust, durable power of attorney, and health directives. We were fortunate in that our son's college roommate, who is now an attorney on that other FL coast, recommend Marc to us. We were completely pleased with Marc's professionalism and his willingness to listen and prepare the documents we needed. You may not be aware, if you are new to FL as we were, that there are some real issues with the state appointing guardians with the power to manage your assets if you don't have the legal documents you need in place. We decided we wanted to be sure that our future was secure and that we would be proactive in protecting ourselves and our heirs. We are sure that you would be wise to take advantage of Marc's expertise. He is very cordial, has a good sense of humor, and wants to be sure that you understand the documents and are prepared for the future.
I contacted Marc for advice on my fathers paperwork which was at least 10 years old. I found him via a google search on Sarasota Estate Lawyers. We met and discussed the documents. We also discussed mine and my partners documents which were just healthcare directives we obtained from the hospital. He drew up the drafts, and sent for review. We all three met with him and signed our updated documents. He is now creating a living trust for me and changing title on a property. He is knowledgeable, easy to work with, and reasonable with his fees.

I had a tough trust case Marc had to go up against 3 others very good lawyers and held his own. The moron that originally made the trust left a lot of loop holes in it that were exploited by a unscrupulous step uncle. I know Marc would not have made such a shoddy document. I wish my father went to him to make the trust in the first place. He was also very fair with his price. Be careful who you hire to make your trust or will as these documents can be very tricky and are not always what they seam. And be very careful of a revocable trust with a contract NOT to revoke. It is a hybrid that can open Pandora's box of.Litigation. Also read about inheritance hijacking You wont believe it can happen in America But trust when I tell you it CAN. I would use Marc again any time i needed Estate work doe'n

Recently Marc Soss helped my wife obtain guardianship of her mother . The guardianship was being contested by a family member and the state of Florida . Marc proved in court that my wife was the correct choice to be her mothers guardian . Marc is very knowledgeable on the law . Straight forward and tells you upfront , What to expect . My wife and I would recommend Marc Soss to anyone needing a lawyer with his knowledge and expertise. Thank You again Marc

I'm located in MN and Marc handle everything to a "T". The only problem I had was how the justice system takes to get things completed which was out of Marc's control.

Marc was kind enough to give my mother free advice over the phone. Mom was concerned about spousal financial responsibility. Marc explained how the law worked in Florida and gave Mom the piece of mind she needed.

You can find attorneys anywhere. Finding one you can trust and feel comfortable with, not so easy. My sister and I were having a difficult time with my father's Trust and two of our siblings. After speaking with Marc, I was looking forward to meeting him. Not only did he make us feel comfortable, but he took his time to explain many matters to us in "layman" terms. Never getting frustrated or annoyed at the repetitive phone calls, questions and emails. I truly appreciated how rapid his responses were. If I called or emailed him, I knew I'd hear back from him usually the same day. I have some other legal issues coming up shortly; there's not a doubt in my mind who I'll be calling! Thanks Marc, you're the best!!!

Marc handled a family dispute case over the settlement of a trust. He listened and was very responsive to my questions in a timely manner. He kept me informed and keep the ball rolling. I received excellent results. He is very knowledgeable and creative. He is very fee conscience. I got my money's worth. Highly recommend.

Mr. Soss assisted me pro bono in deciding whether to tackle a specific and knotty tax problem. Due to his comprehensive knowlege of the tax statute concerning disabled vets, I made the proper choice and am glad for his assistance in what could have been a terribly stressful problem.

Marc recently did work for me in creating a trust. His charges were very fair, and he did an excellent job. Marc was responsive, accurate, timely, and his fees were quite reasonable. I would highly recommend Marc.
