Will and Trust Law
Will and Trust Law in Broward County, FL
At my firm, Andrea L. Jakob, PA, I am committed to helping you develop a personalized and comprehensive Estate Plan. People are not one-sized fits all, so an Estate Plan shouldn’t be one-plan fits all. I care about your family and I work with you, your children or your parents, to develop a strategy to help transfer your assets and minimize any taxes and the dreaded possibility of Probate. I also make sure that your personal values and legacy are passed on as well.
What Does a Will Involve?
A Will is a written legal document that specifies the distribution of your assets after you are gone.
If you pass away without a Will (intestate), the State of Florida determines how your assets get divided, and who your beneficiaries will be. A judge will decide who gets your estate. For those with minor children, a Will is the only way for you to select who will be their guardian if you pass away.
Fundamental Estate Planning Documents
At Andrea L. Jakob, P.A., I work with each client to provide a personal and holistic approach for your future comfort and well-being, drafting individually-tailored documents including some of the following:
- Last Will and Testament
- Advanced Health Care Directives (including a Living Will, HIPAA Release and Designation of Health Care Surrogate)
- Durable Power of Attorney
- Revocable Living Trusts and Irrevocable Trusts
- Quit-Claim Deeds
- Special Needs Trusts
Effective Trust Planning Services
Trusts offer you a variety of advantages, such as:
- Avoiding Probate
- Minimizing or Avoiding Tax Consequences
- Keeping Financial Information Private
- Setting Money Aside for Your Children and Grand Children
- Setting Aside Money for Potential Disability or Long-Term Care
A Revocable Living Trust is usually known as an instrument to avoid probate, but it is also a powerful tool to keep your estate plan a private family matter and to protect you, your family and your assets during life and its challenges now and in the future.

Excellent, Caring and Compassionate Service
I made an appointment with Andrea after convincing my elderly parents that they needed to make estate plans. They were in denial and finally agreed to go. From the beginning, Andrea was professional and caring. She answered all our questions, was knowledgeable about the law and how it would affect their assets upon their passing. Andrea set up a will, trust, power of attorneys, medical power of attorney and gave advice for different possible future events at a flat fee which was reasonable. I was so pleased I also set up my estate plans. Now my brother and brother in law are also planning to consult with her for their plans.Thank you Andrea for giving us all peace of mind.
Absolutely the best
My sisters and I had a family situation with another family member seriously ill in the hospital, with no will, healthcare surrogate, power of attorney, etc. Attorney Jakob was incredibly kind, comforting and supportive, super knowledgeable, and flexible to meet us on our schedule on a Saturday afternoon, to draw up the paperwork we absolutely needed to get done ASAP. I was very impressed with her suggestions/advice/knowledge on the topics, as well as her kind nature and personality. And, what we paid to have this done ASAP was more than fair. She is very sharp and knows her stuff, particularly in the area of wills, estate planning, etc. I cannot recommend her more highly. Great attorney, great person.
The professional assistance that was provided me was invaluable and left me with a sense of great comfort in knowing that I now have all of my legal affairs in order. I would highly recommend Andrea to help anyone who needs help in planning their estate. She was also very reasonably priced.
Prepared & Professional
Andrea was prepared, thorough in her explanation of the documents and very professional. Her knowledge and kindness made me feel very comfortable. I know I made the right decision for her to handle my legal matter.
