Trustworthy & Experienced Estate Attorney
My wife and I are both 74 years old, and we felt it was time to set up the proper estate planning accurately describe our final wishes and also avoid paying any unnecessary taxes when our assets are passed on to our beneficiaries or heirs. The Law Offices of Frye, Fortich and Garcia handled all of these matters for us. We had the good fortune to get the proper legal advice and documentation from Austin Frye and Lauren Garcia. They took all the time we needed to clearly our goals as a couple and individually. Not once did we feel that any question we had was too basic and unimportant. The entire experience was very professional and quite comfortable given the subject matter. We even had some good laughs along the way. On top of all this, we felt the fees charged were more than reasonable and fair. We recommend wholeheartedly to anyone who needs this type of legal expertise to consider using this law firm.

Estate
I’m Lou and my father passed away and left me his estate that had a 50 percent share of the property he owned with his girlfriend for 30 years. I was lost and Gus and Austin was my father’s attorney’s that I also inherited. I dealt mostly with Gus , who is a true professional and is always prompt returning calls and emails. Gus also helped with me purchasing an additional percentage of the property. I’d recommend Gus , Laura and Austin to anyone looking for attorneys that will always have your best interest. Thanks Lou

Very positive experience
My experience with Frye, Fortich & Garcia has been a very positive experience. My husband and I did our trusts, but unfortunately, he passed away before we were able to implement changes. Ms. Garcia outlined everything that needed to be done for the estate. She guided me in the necessary paperwork and completed all the necessary court papers. In the process, Ms. Garcia also caught a big mistake the courts made by appointing the wrong executor. This was promptly corrected. I was advised of all the steps taken throughout these proceedings and told of all papers needed. If I did not have them, I was always provided with help. My questions were promptly and kindly answered. My experience has been very positive all the way through. Everyone in the office is courteous and prompt.

Best of class service.
As a serial entrepreneur, I've engaged various legal teams, but Gus Fortich at Frye, Fortich & Garcia, P.L. in Miami, FL, has provided an outstanding experience. Gus's expertise in structuring and securing businesses, especially in crafting partnership structures, is exceptional. His personalized approach ensured my ventures were well-protected and strategically positioned for growth. The client service at Frye, Fortich & Garcia is top-notch. Gus and his team were always responsive, offering concise and effective advice. They excelled not only in business law but also in family planning services, ensuring that my personal and professional interests were aligned and secured. I highly recommend Gus Fortich and his team for their comprehensive legal support, including partnership and family planning services.

Outstanding !
I would highly recommend the law firm of Frye, Fortich, and Garcia, PL. I first became acquainted with the firm when my mother chose them to write her will and to set up her trust. When my mother passed earlier this year, I called the firm and was immediately advised of what things I needed to attend to right away, and what things could wait until I was ready to proceed. When I was ready to start actively working on settling my mother's affairs, I met in person with Austin Frye and Lauren Garcia. They advised me, listened to my concerns, and helped me begin my work. For the most part, I worked with Lauren Garcia. I found her to be excellent to work with. She was very professional, but also compassionate. She was knowledgeable, and also was able to articulate and explain things that were entirely new to me. She was clearly my advocate, and I trusted her to direct me wisely. As with many families, there were bumps along the way with some members of my family, but every time I thought things were going to go off the rails, Ms. Garcia reassured me that we were doing things correctly, and as my mother wished, and all would be well. She was always right. One of the things I most appreciate about this firm is the communication. Whether I communicated by email or by phone, if I had a question or a concern, I knew without a doubt that I would get a response promptly, often within a few minutes. Whether I was dealing with the people at the front desk, a paralegal or an attorney, I was always treated with the utmost respect. They made me feel like I was their only client. In fact, one time when I called and was told that Ms. Garcia would have to call me back as she was on a call with another client, I joked that sometimes I had to remind myself that I wasn't her only client. When you are trying to do business while in the process of grieving, that really makes a huge difference. I absolutely will use this firm again when I need legal assistance and advice.

Excellent Probata Lawyer
The firm kept me informed of progress every step of the way. At no time did I feel like I was unaware of generally the next steps. I was always of the impression that the team had everything under control and never felt like my file might be sitting on the side of a desk somewhere waiting to be attended to. I believe the firm did what was required to get the job done well without over charging me. In other words, I feel like I received excellent value for my fees. As for the interaction related to paying those fees, that was also painless, and I was well informed of what charges had been incurred at any point throughout the process. I have a very positive impression of the firm and staff.

Detailed, Professional and Knowledgeable
I engaged Law Offices of Frye & Vazquez to assist me with transfer of real property. I worked with Gustavo "Gus" Fortich who was very knowledgeable about the subject matter and was able to answer all of my questions. Gus is very detailed and above all very responsive. I must also mention that the ambience and hospitality upon visiting the office is A class. It was a pleasure to work with such a professional and highly recommend this firm!

Excellent Guidance. I Highly Recommend This Firm
I started working with Gus Fortich before he joined Frye and Vazquez to get my husband’s and my estate planning documents in order; he gave excellent guidance on what was needed. When my husband passed away unexpectedly in 2020, I worked with Gus and his new firm, Frye and Vazquez. Everyone at the firm was terrific, kind and patient. They helped me with everything I needed to do. Their advice and support was invaluable. Working with Gus and his associate Lauren Garcia was fantastic. I highly recommend the firm of Frye and Vazquez.

Everyone at the Law firm was very friendly and easy to talk to but at the same time professional and very respectful. They responded to any questions I had right away and explained everything that was needed throughout the process of completing my father’s estate planning. I am so grateful for their help during this time and would highly recommend this firm.

BEST LAW FIRM IN TOWN
Just finished doing a Life Estate Deed with the law offices of Frye & Vazquez and must say that I was very impressed with the customer service and legal advice they provided. Lauren Garcia, Esq. was not only a true professional but very knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. Work was done in a timely manner, and she was always available guiding me every step of the way. I highly recommend Frye & Vazquez for all your legal needs.

Extremely helpful and knowledgeable during a difficult time
In August 2021, I contacted the Law Offices of Frye & Vazquez when our Mother passed away peacefully at the age of 103. She had used this practice years ago in writing up her own Trust, Will and Testament. It seemed as though the law staff knew her well as on her 100th Birthday, they sent her a card and picture of the entire Frye & Vazquez staff congratulating her on the achievement. For years, our mother told us that when she passed away, we should definitely contact this law office to take care of the necessary documents. Our mother always prepared for things in advance. Once again, our Mother’s advice didn’t fail us. My sister and I worked primarily with Gustavo Fortich and Lauren Garcia. Given that my sister and I both live in Chicago and our Mother lived in Aventura, Florida, most all of our contacts were long distance by phone. Nonetheless, when I was talking to Gus or Lauren, I felt like they were right there in front of me. They explained the necessary procedure in a way that I could easily understand. I’m a Clinical Psychologist with no knowledge of the law when it comes to Trusts, Wills and Condo Deeds in another state. When we later met everyone in person, they were warm and personable, yet highly professional. We felt like the charge was fair, and actually a little less than originally estimated. Everything was taken care of in a timely fashion and accurately done. This was quite reassuring given that it was a somewhat of an emotional time for myself and my family. I would recommended the Law Practice of Frye & Vazquez highly without any reservation. Knowing that we, as a family, were in good hands, made a difficult time much less so.

Impeccable Attorney and Team
When I moved to Miami from the Midwest several years ago, I needed to update my legal estate documents in accordance with local laws. I found Frye & Vazquez, and not only updated my existing documents, but created other necessary documents to complete and improve my estate planning. In addition to the excellent advice I received from Austin Frye on a number of matters, the service from the whole team has been impeccable – prompt and professional - even through trying situations. In fact, as a result of my experience with the legal team, I actually became a client of their other, non-legal professional offerings, and remain extremely pleased with every aspect of service.

There's just NOBODY BETTER
After moving to South Florida 15 years ago, it finally came time for us to assemble our Will and Revocable Trust. I asked three friends whom I trusted deeply for their advice on who might be the very best lawyer to help us. One friend was an accountant, and the other two were lawyers themselves. All three responded with the same two words – Austin Frye. One of the lawyers insisted..."I could do this for you myself, but if you really want the best, you need to call Austin Frye. He's the right man for this job. You don't want this screwed up, and Austin never screws up." After a few phone calls and just two concise meetings that started on time and ended with a smile and a handshake, this complex work was completed and the papers were signed and executed, without error, without hassle, and without delay. While working with him, it became clear that we were dealing with a man who cares deeply about his clients. He wasn't just doing the job he'd been tasked with. His eyes and ears were wide open, and his vision was nothing short of 360. More than any other legal professional we have ever worked with, Austin has shown that he truly cares about us, not just as clients, but as human beings. He's not just our attorney; after working with him, we consider him our friend, and we trust him implicitly. We'd enthusiastically recommend him to anyone who needs legal help, without hesitation.
