Estate, trust, guardianship, and fiduciary litigation are the firm’s focus.
The knowledge and elite legal skills we possess in estate and probate litigation are the result of years of experience successfully serving clients across Florida. Estate and probate litigation is an exceedingly complex and nuanced area of the law. There is a separate and lengthy chapter of Florida Statutes specifically crafted for probate proceedings, and the law is ever changing. Our attorneys keep up to date with the latest developments to benefit you by regularly attending Florida Bar meetings around the state to discuss and draft proposed estate legislation for the state of Florida. Do not trust your litigation matter to any attorney who does not possess the skill and practice area knowledge that only time, tutelage and experience bring. You need a “probate litigator,” not merely a litigator.
Barner & Barner serves you by a deep proficiency in the practice area. We understand and leverage litigation procedure and tactics which, in many instances, are completely unique to estate litigation.
A natural byproduct of our longtime work in this area is the proven and continually refined processes and strategies that directly benefit our clients. Since we are a boutique law firm, you will receive the attention you deserve, while we provide the honed skills you need to achieve the results you seek.
Whether in the trial court or the appellate court, our attorneys and legal staff have the talents and experience to assist you.
