Practice areas
  1. Guardianship
    35%
    I help families and loved ones set up and administer a Guardianship so that the Guardian has the legal authority to assist the ward. Guardianships fall under Court supervision and can be complicated and highly technical. I can help you through this difficult area of the law.

  2. Probate
    35%
    I work with the Family or Personal Representative to settle the estate after the death of a loved one. This includes accounting for all assets, paying all proper debts, and distributing all assets. This also includes representation in Probate Litigation and Will Contests.

  3. Family
    20%
    I help clients with problems relating to Divorce, Alimony, Child Support, Child Custody, Visitation, Re-Location with Children, Property Distributions, Post-Divorce proceedings (Modifications and changes to Alimony, Child Support, Custody, and Visitation), Domestic Violence Injunctions, and Adoptions. I am a Family Mediator, certified by the Florida Supreme Court.

  4. Estate planning
    10%
    I help Families plan for the future and assist with Estate Planning. This includes preparing Wills, Trusts, Revocable Living Trusts, Durable Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, Health Care Surrogacy, Durable Powers of Attorney for Health Care, Charitable Trusts, Special Needs Trusts, and other Estate Planning Documents. I provide advise, representation and preparation of Living Trusts, Revocable Trusts, Charitable Trusts, and Special Needs Trusts.

Estate planning
Mr. Clements wrote our living wills, poa for healthcare, and our wills. He suggested ways to minimize the expenses of probate. We did some price shopping and found him to be fair priced, as well as pleasant to work with. The process was quick and all of our questions were answered.
