Estate Planning

estate planning Sarasota FLAre you looking for estate planning in Sarasota, FL? At Bart Scovill, PLC, we have been planning Florida estates for over 20 years.  Our estate plans range from simple wills to complex trusts designed to minimize taxes.  They are also designed to protect you during your lifetime through the use of advance medical directives and powers of attorney.  If you would like a review of your own situation or existing documents, Contact Us and we'll call you to set a no-obligation review.

Elements of a good estate plan include:

  • Testamentary documents for transferring assets to your heirs or beneficiaries such as a Last Will and Testament and possibly a Living Revocable Trust;
  • Advance medical directives such as Designation of Health Care Surrogate and Living Will to ensure someone can direct your care in an emergency and that your end of life decisions are followed;
  • A Durable Power of Attorney to ensure your bills are paid and finances are managed in the event of temporary or permanent incapacity; and
  • A Designation of Pre-Need Guardian to ensure you have a say in the naming of your Guardian should it ever prove unavoidable.
