Matthew A. Gruber, Esq., founder of The Estate Plan, formerly Gruber Law, PLLC in Miami, Florida, has dedicated his legal practice to helping individuals and families protect and plan their estates for over 10 years. He is licensed to practice law in the state of Florida and holds a Juris doctorate from Florida International University and a Bachelor’s in Business Administration degree from the University of Miami. Matt began his legal career in the tumultuous environment of the Great Recession. At that time, he joined forces with his late father, Allen H. Gruber, and together they created Gruber & Gruber, PA, a thriving practice that was dedicated to helping clients solve almost any problem that they were facing. This incredible opportunity afforded Matt the ability to gain an unparalleled amount of experience in a short period of time handling civil litigation, family law, criminal law, traffic law, real estate closings, foreclosure litigation, debt defense, credit repair, IRS collection/audit defense, probate, estate planning, business law, personal injury law and administrative law.

After the economy started to rebound, Matt’s father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Unexplainably, the universe also started to send Matt many terminally ill clients. Matt took this as a sign that his ability to help people during their most difficult time in life was his calling. It was at that time that he founded the estate planning and probate law firm, Gruber Law, PLLC. In December 2021, he renamed the firm to The Estate Plan to align with the growth of the business.

Having grown up in Palmetto Bay and graduating from local South Florida universities, Matt strives to give back to the community that offered him his humble start. Over the years he has attended many workshops within the community in an effort to spread awareness about the necessity of estate planning.

Professional and knowledgeable
I consulted with Matt regarding a family probate issue and he was very professional and clearly articulated the best options and next steps on how to proceed and estimated costs. Next step is to hire Matt to move forward.

Very comfortable to work with. Imbued a sense of compassion for my situation.
I found Matt's firm online and requested the offer of a free consultation. Within a couple of hours, one of his staffers (Stephanie?) contacted me to setup the Zoom meeting. They sent the invite shortly thereafter. I joined the meeting today and Matt was super-easy to work with. I never felt rushed. He made sure that he fully understood my situation and took time to clarify some things for me. He explained that in my particular situation, the laws in Florida didn't give me any legal ground to work within the scope of my situation. He certainly never attempted to find some way to make a case out of something that wasn't. Based on today's interaction with him, I'd have ZERO concerns about engaging him in other legal matters if they were to arise.

Matthew and his team was very professional and responsive to our Family Planning and Trust need. Our case seemed complicated but he was very diligent and meticulous in explaining everything to us in details. Highly recommend his services for any Family Estate Planning work.

Very swift and to the point!
Mr. Gruber was very kind and heard all of my concerns regarding my marital home for my children to be raised in. He clearly informed me of what was personal and what was legal. And made sure that I understood the difference. He said exactly what he would do, pending my decisions, and worked on my case in the fastest way possible. The outcome was entirely in my favor and I was very grateful to have an attorney that truly listened and acted on behalf and in my best interest.

Professional and Prompt
Mr. Gruber came highly recommended from someone he was on a case with in which they were on opposing teams. Within in minutes of Gruber and I conversation for my prospective case at the time, he was able to direct me on what to do and took the initiative to make a few phone calls to reassure the accuracy of information. I proceeded to hire him and he got the job done. He was very knowledgable and great to work with.

Mr. Gruber did all my estate will and health care surrogate papers and made everything easy and clear. He is very easy to talk to and takes plenty of time to go over everything. Very knowledgeable and careful and has been a great resource to me for any questions or concerns. Highly recommend.

Knowledgable & experienced Estate planning attorney
I have worked with Mr. Gruber on several real estate transactions that involved an Estate and/or a Probate and I have seen him navigate very complex family dynamics while ensuring that the estate was covered legally and financially despite the actions of the relatives involved. He has proven to be an indispensable asset to me and my clients when they are in need of an Estate planning attorney or when they need to create or modify a will. I recommend him highly not just as a diligent professional, but as a caring person who will treat you, your properties and your belongings as if they were his own.

This is the guy we (all) need...
My wife and I already had our will and directives in place - or so we thought - until Matt reviewed our file and pointed out a number of deficiencies. As our life changed, we did not properly update the paperwork and Matt’s guidance has us feeling better about all the “what if” that life eventually brings. He was patient and extremely knowledgeable in his approach to our situation, all with an extra sensitivity to the inevitability of death and succession. And lastly, Mr. Gruber was kind enough to perform a cursory review of my parent’s documents even though they have had these things in place for years. As the named executor of this process, that guidance was critical to me as I plan for the unimaginable moment of my parents passing. All told, Matt is an expert in his craft and someone that my wife and I enthusiastically recommend. Everyone, regardless of their financial status, will benefit from the peace of mind that comes with proper planning. Matt was extremely professional from start to finish and I thank him, profoundly, for the time we spent together.
