  1. Estate planning
    50%
    Estate planning is a general term used to describe your overall plan to govern the control and disposition of your hard-earned resources in the event of disability, incapacity, or death. It’s not enough to just have a will. Attorneys experienced in Estate Planning know this. In addition to discussing types of wills, your lawyer should ask you about your future plans for health care.

  2. Corporate and incorporation
    20%
    I am more than just a business lawyer, I am a business owner, and I understand the challenges you face in owning and operating a small business. Small business refers to any business with approximate gross annual revenues of $10 million or less. That is a substantial number which represents a great deal of your time and effort! Make sure you have the right employment agreements, partnership agreements, and corporate filings in place to protect that investment.

  3. Wills and living wills
    20%
    In preparing wills, attorneys have the moral responsibility to ensure your desires will be carried out. That’s why thorough Estate Planning involves more than just filling out wills, Power of Attorney, and other documents. involves questions that are more appropriately directed to accountants and financial professionals. Not every estate planning attorney in Florida will take a proactive course of action on your behalf to ensure that your goals are met. We do.

Asset Protection from Spouse in Nursing Home
I had a consult with the Gibbs Law Office to understand how to protect our assets from paying for a nursing home and the consult was a no charge consultation. Mr Gibbs and his staff are very knowledgeable on how Medicaid works here in Florida and what are accountable assets verses what is not counted as assets. We were also informed of the elective share in Florida that you cannot disinherit your spouse if you are in a nursing home and the well spouse passes away while your spouse is in the nursing home. They have done an amazing job at protecting our assets and making the move into a nursing home a lot easier and not be financially drained.

Estate Planning
My wife and I are in our 70's and last year we decided to do estate planning for the first time. We talked with three different law firms and decided on Steven J. Gibbs because in the initial interview, they made us aware of several options I hadn't considered. They continued to follow up to assure we are current in our planning. They have helped us to understand that estate planning is an ongoing process.
