About Craig

Learn Craig’s areas of practice.

My practice focuses primarily in the areas of estate planning, business planning, probate administration, and trust administration. I advise clients on a broad array of estate planning techniques and counsel clients through the probate and trust administration process. I routinely handle estates of all sizes and complexities from very modest summary administrations to extremely large probate estates involving significant assets with complex family and business structures. 

In addition, I often advise clients on probate avoidance, deeds, domicile, and representing clients in disputed trust or probate administration matters including a significant amount of Florida elective share litigation.  Other areas I often handle include forming new business entities and representing clients before the IRS in estate and income tax disputes.

Craig very competently handled the recent probate of my husband's estate. He competed the work timely and professionally, explaining all documents to me. He also provided invaluable guidance and advice concerning a variety of other legal matters that needed to be dealt with as a result of my husband's death.

Probate and Estate Planning
Craig handled the probate issues following my father's death. He counseled my mother and dealt with her questions with a professional yet caring manner. Our family appreciates Crag's assistance with many complicated issues at a difficult time.
