Practice areas




Greg grew up immersed in a family business which supplied goods & services to restaurants and institutions throughout the Midwest.  The youngest of three brothers, as an attorney Greg worked closely with his parents and siblings to design a succession plan for the business and an estate plan to maximize his parents' financial legacy. It is a legacy which now will endure for years to come.  It was the satisfaction from this experience, together with a natural passion for client service, that has led Greg to focus his practice on Estate Planning, so that clients may enjoy the peace of mind that comes from having their affairs in order, while leaving a secure legacy for their loved ones.


            Greg Kabel has practiced law for over 25 years, focusing exclusively on the areas of Trusts and Estates, Probate, and Business Transactions.  He began his legal career in Chicago at the national law firms of Mayor, Brown & Platt, as an associate, and then McDermott, Will & Emery, as partner.  McDermott, Will & Emery has a nationally renowned Estate Planning practice and Greg worked with some of the best and most innovative attorneys in the country in the areas of Wealth Preservation and Estate Planning for both individuals and families.


            For over 10 years, since relocating to Florida, Greg has continued his practice, focusing on personalized Estate Planning for both traditional and non-traditional couples and families, as well as for individuals and the businesses they may own. 


Greg strongly believes that there is no such thing as a typical client.  Each client comes with his or her own set of circumstances, challenges and goals.  Greg helps his clients craft unique plans, designed to fit their individual needs, which may be as basic as a Will with Advanced Directives, or more complex solutions, such as Dynastic Trusts, which preserve and protect wealth for future generations.  Trusts for Probate Avoidance, Estate Tax Planning, IRA Planning and Special Needs Planning are also invaluable tools in the right circumstances.  To round out the practice, Greg counsels clients with their Small Business Planning needs and with Probate and Trust Administration Services.


            Greg attended Denison University where he earned a B.A., cum laude, in economics, graduating Phi Beta Kappa in 1980.  After graduation, he moved to Chicago to attend the University of Chicago, first earning his M.B.A. from the Graduate School of Business in 1982 and later his J.D. from the Law School in 1987.

Estate Planning Advice from a Fellow Lawyer's Perspective
I am a lawyer myself but without a special expertise in estate planning which is the advice I was seeking, specifically revising my will and establishing multiple trusts. I found Greg's advice to be clear and well reasoned. He explained how he felt my current estate documents could be improved under FL law to better meet the expectations I sought. And he was right. I'm a stickler for careful drafting and I found Greg's abilities first rate in wordsmith which is so very important in wills/trusts. I was impressed with his clarity in draftsmanship which exceeded my previous documents. Bottom line, he understood what I wanted to accomplish and provided the necessary explanations and drafting to be sure I achieved my goals. I was totally satisfied.
