Trust and Estate Planning

Preparing your Power of Attorney, Wills, Deeds, and Trusts.

Estate planning permits a person to designate how their assets are to be distributed when they pass away. Typically this involves wills, trusts, and deeds. In Florida, the law requires that these documents be drafted and executed in a specific and formal manner. For a person’s wishes to be effective, it is critical that the estate plan be created by an experienced Florida attorney.

Planning also includes the use of Advance Directives. These documents give your loved ones the authority to act on your behalf when you cannot act for yourself. These include the durable power of attorney, health care surrogate designation, and living will. Amy will help guide you through making these important decisions and getting the legal documentation in place to support those decisions. Planning for incapacity while you are alive is a gift that will save your loved one’s time and money and alleviate the stress of trying to perform your loved one’s last wishes.

Amy offered excellent service during a time that was difficult to assist a family member with high medical costs. Her knowledge and expertise were invaluable. She made herself available was patient, caring and understanding and thorough. Her competent legal service gave me peace of mind and was well worth it.

This is a long overdue review. Amy and Carolyn are the best people to come into our lives during this pandemic. My aunt in Florida needed to get on Medicaid because she was going into a facility for care. I live in New York and because of the Pandemic, I had to deal only with phone calls and zoom meetings. No matter how many times I called, all my questions were answered quickly and politely, no matter how silly they were. Any time I wrote, either Amy or Carolyn answered quickly and efficiently. In addition to dealing with me long distance, Amy and Carolyn had to deal with my 92-year-old mother, who is my Aunt’s sister. They both impressed me with their patience in dealing with my Mom’s many many questions. Believe me, this was not easy. When the process finished, they told us to contact them whenever needed. This is probably the first review I have done online and, in my opinion, well deserved.

We went to Amy to plan for a parent. We were informed of options we had no idea were available. She took care of all of our needs, including ensuring the parent was well informed on what was taking place. The services provided by her and her staff made a difficult time a lot easier and enabled a smooth transition.

I worked with Amy to have estate documents done for me and advance directives for my college-age kids. Amy and her staff made the process easy from beginning to end. They took the time to explain each document to us and help us decide what should be filed out. They even went out of their way to accommodate us during COVID. I highly recommend Amy Dow Law!

Amy Dow and her associate Carolyn were able to help my husband and me during an extremely difficult and stressful time. They were very patient with all my many questions and made both our Medicaid Planning and Estate Planning so clear, and we are so grateful for her expertise, kindness and care. They couldn’t have been more helpful and were my one light at the end of the dark tunnel. I recommend them with absolutely no hesitation.
