Excellence in Elder & Special Needs Law
At Ferrari, Butler, & Moneymaker, PLLC, we focus our practice on the legal issues that impact seniors and those with special needs. These issues include estate and long term care planning, probate and trust administration, guardianship, Medicaid planning, and veteran benefits.
Our team of attorneys combine extensive real life experience and legal knowledge with a true compassion for the lives of our clients and their families.
We work closely with each of our clients to properly plan for their unexpected incapacity and the eventual transfer of their assets to family, friends, and charitable beneficiaries upon their death.
PROBATE & TRUST
Upon the death of a loved one, we represent personal representatives, trustees, and beneficiaries throughout an estate and/or trust administration. If you have been named or wish to serve as the Personal Representative in a Florida estate then you must be represented by an attorney.
SPECIAL NEEDS PLANNING
We represent petitioners seeking to be appointed as Guardian Advocates for developmentally disabled adults. We also assist with the establishment and funding of special needs trusts and ABLE accounts.
We recognize that the guardianship process can be confusing and threatening. We represent petitioners and guardians as well as regularly serve as court appointed attorneys representing those who are alleged to be incapacitated.
We work with our clients to strategically preserve their assets while preparing them to qualify for Florida Medicaid benefits.
We assist veterans and their surviving spouses in qualifying for and obtaining VA Pension benefits including Aid & Attendance.
