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!

A tremendous legal resource for our entire family
Austin Frye and his team make up a terrific firm. They have handled a combination of Estate Planning, Wills, Probate and Trust Administration for my wife and me, our son, and her father. They are pleasure to work with and stay on top of changing needs legally and financially. All three generations of us have had a great experience with the team, and highly recommend the 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.

So grateful we chose this firm.
Very happy my dad and I chose Frye and Vazquez’s to handle his Trust, living will and his Estate. 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.

Knowledgeable and attentive estate and probate attorney
My parents switched their legal affairs to Austin Frye 15 years ago and were very pleased with the knowledgeable and attentive service they received. When my father passed away, my mother and I went to Austin to review the probate documents and determine next steps for my mother. He gave, as always, sage counsel and advice. I remain very happy with the organization, the staff, the service and advice we have received at Frye and Vazquez. The experience has been and remains a very positive one.

Trustworthy and experienced estate attorney
My long-standing relationship with Austin Frye dates back to work he did for my father. When my mother needed estate planning guidance, Austin did a remarkable job for her, as well. Similarly, when my new mother-in-law was in need of estate planning services, the only person I would trust is Austin Frye. He is very likeable and always knows the exact questions to ask, and as my mother-in-law observed, he is not only charming but very smart. The whole process was very smooth, and completed in a short period of time.

Best of the Best
When it came time for my wife and I to restructure our estate planning, we needed to make the right decision and select a law office that we knew was highly qualified to meet our needs. I have been practicing law for 45 years and know many attorneys. It actually turned out to be a simple choice. My lifetime accountant referred me to Austin Frye of the Law Offices of Frye & Vasquez, P. L. Austin has a reputation in the professional community of being highly qualified and treating all of his clients like family. The quality of service was excellent and all of our questions were answered to our satisfaction. We were treated like family. Further after the estate planning documents were executed by my wife and I, Austin remains ready and willing to answer any other questions that we needed answered. Some questions required long and somewhat complicated answers, but Austin was always available to simplify the subject matter for us. I highly recommend Austin Frye of the Law Offices of Frye & Vasquez, P. L. to those who seek expert representation in the estate planning field.

Outstanding professionals who seem to love what they do.
We are so truly grateful to the Law Offices of Frye & Vazquez for all they have done for our family over this past 2 years. The following highlights outline the reasons we have recommended Austin Frye’s firm to our family and friends: 1. Sincerity and true concern for the people who request your expertise and advice. 2. Great listening skills to find out what your clients want and what they need. 3. Patience and helpfulness when dealing with clients who have little knowledge about estate planning. 4. A business with a “culture” of caring and helping people. 5. Follow up and communications that are easy to understand and helpful. Thank you for all you and the staff at the Law Offices of Frye & Vazquez have done for our family over this past 2 years.

Thoughtful and knowledgable Attorney
I write to commend the Law Firm of Frye & Vazquez of Aventura Florida. The firm prepared a will and living trust and other related documents for my Mother. I found their service to be very professional, thoughtful and their charges reasonable. On my Mother’s passing the law firm handled the legal aspects of her trust and estate. Again, I found the firm and in particular Mr. Frye and his assistant Sarah Gross, with whom I worked directly, to be knowledgeable and responsive to my needs as I navigated through the various aspects of the administration of my Mother’s estate. I do strongly recommend the firm for those requiring estate planning and administration.

A thorough and meticulous attorney.
Austin Frye has represented our family for many years, as to estate planning, tax planning, asset protection and business consulting. After the recent passing of both our parents, we realized how effective Austin’s meticulous estate and tax planning were – he successfully prevented a taxable estate for both my parents. In terms of asset protection, Austin’s thoroughness kept assets tightly sealed and well protected when our daughter recently got divorced.
