Estate Planning

Let’s work on Estate Planning together

The future always seems so far away, until you run into legal troubles because you did not plan ahead accordingly. At Akilah Harris PLLC., we want to help you protect your family from tomorrow’s legal complications and frustrations by helping you with trusts and estates today. Whether you are nearing your golden years, have accrued considerable finances or assets, or just want you and your family to be ready for anything, let us be the team who set the wheels in motion.

How Estate Planning Benefits You & Your Family

You can never really know what is around the next corner, but estate planning tools let you anticipate as much as you can. Tell us about your family, your concerns, and your estate planning goals, and we can tell you how we can use our legal experience to create a personally-tailored trust or estate plan that fits just right in your life.


Some clients want to discuss what family members will inherit what assets and why. Others would find peace of mind knowing that a close friend would have the right to make important or legal decisions for them after they become incapacitated, perhaps due to age. Others still hope to assign guardianship to someone to care for their small ones, just in case they can no longer raise them. All of these circumstances and more can be readily addressed and comfortably resolved with our Florida trusts and estates attorney helping you along the way.

​​Estate Planning Basics

Although estate planning can be a complex task, a well-informed plan can make a big difference in what is left for your loved ones. At Akilah Harris PLLC., we can assist you in creating a family estate plan that works for you. If you do not have a will, we strongly recommend you start there. Having a will is arguably one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family. Not only can a will legally protect your spouse, children, and assets, it can also spell out exactly how you would like things handled after you have passed on.
