Florida probate law requires most executors of estates with property in the state to use a probate attorney.
Statewide Probate®, a service of Pensacola law firm McDonald Fleming Moorhead, provides legal services globally to executors of estates with property in Florida.
Plain Talk Answers
Serving All Counties
Our probate attorneys and paralegals have assisted thousands since 1999 with caring help, and have delivered substantial savings for many clients with estates over $250,000. We assist executors for uncontested probate administration throughout all of Florida. We are located in Pensacola and have assisted clients with probate in nearly every county in the Sunshine State. However, temporarily, we are not accepting files in Miami-Dade County due to problems the probate clerk is having under the new electronic filing system. When probate files are moving smoothly again, we will gladly accept estates in Miami-Dade.
Whether your estate requires probate administration in Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Sarasota, Fort Myers or West Palm Beach, Statewide Probate helps executors (called "personal representatives" in Florida) with "plain probate talk" and economical guidance. We can serve the entire state because in uncontested estates neither the executor nor the attorney has to actually go to court. Therefore, the personal representative does not need to live in Florida, and the attorney need not be near the courthouse.

Florida probate lawyers are allowed to charge a fee of up to 3% of the value of the estate. As a result, executors may pay probate lawyers' fees that in some cases are excessive for the work needed: $15,000 to assist in transferring $500,000 in assets, or $30,000 for transferring $1 million in assets. We do not charge 3% for our probate and estate services, but hourly rates or flat fees based upon the work your estate requires.
