Estate Planning and Administration from the Simple to Complex

Trust Nici Law Firm, P.L. with all your estate planning and estate administration needs. We can help you with any of the following:

Estate Planning – We review your assets and objectives to create the right combination of Wills, Trusts, Advance Directives, and Powers of Attorney that ensure you are properly cared for and protected during your lifetime, and your estate is handled in accordance with your wishes after you are gone. Our estate planning expert takes special care to craft a Creditor-Protected Inheritance and avoid the Estate and Gift Tax while addressing issues such as Special Needs Planning, IRA planning, Charitable Trusts, Blended Family Estate Planning, or other needs specific to your unique situation.

Estate Administration – We advise and represent Personal Representatives, Trustees and others through the myriad of complex tasks involved in Probate or Trust Administration. Fiduciaries risk exposure to personal liability if they don’t fulfill their roles properly. Our goal is to assist representatives for their benefit and so that heirs and beneficiaries receive their inheritance sooner and with minimum expense to the estate.

Florida Domicile – Making Florida your primary residence is as simple as moving here; making Florida your domicile is a little more involved. We’ll guide you through the steps of declaring Florida domicile so you can reap the benefits Florida has to offer regarding homestead exemption, tax shelters, no state income tax, asset protection, and more.

Business Planning – Our firm offers a wide range of services for start-ups, small businesses and corporations. We can advise and assist in the right structure for business entity formation and guide you through business succession planning, including closely-held family businesses. Our services range from buying or selling an enterprise to forming offshore entities and more. Our sophisticated business lawyer provides advice and assistance with all corporate documents and can represent you through mergers and acquisitions and related transactions. Through our Annual Maintenance Program (AMP), we will prepare and file all records required annually by the State of Florida and even serve as your registered agent. We take a lot of stress and worry off your plate so you can focus on running and growing your business.

Asset Protection – Nici Law Firm, P.L., provides highly specialized legal services devoted to asset protection in the context of estate planning. We help potential “deep pocket” defendants avoid unwanted attention by maintaining privacy in their business dealings. We provide guidance for real estate investors to protect their investment and the equity in their property while minimizing liability. We create asset protection plans for physicians and other professionals as they face the constant threat of attacks on their personal assets and professional practice.

The most complex estate plans easily grasped

In 2007, James R. Nici created Strategic Planners Group, LLC, and developed The Strategic Snapshot®, an estate planning tool designed for high net worth individuals but with practical applications for anybody engaging in estate planning. With one glance, you will be able to easily see and understand all the elements of your estate plan, how they work together, and how they will meet your needs and desires for your estate. The Strategic Snapshot® is one more reason to consider using Nici Law Firm for your estate planning needs.
