Legal Assistance for All of Your Probate Needs in San Juan County

The State of Puerto Rico has different requirements for wills than other states in the U.S. Inheritance laws, for example, are somewhat complicated. Puerto Rico believes in forced heirs, and will protect their rights over any other type of legal document that may exist in an estate plan. If you either accidentally or intentionally exclude forced heirs, your will may be considered invalid. Not having a will, or creating a will incorrectly, will lead to the government dividing your assets depending on their own laws. Our firm is aware that Puerto Rico may not divide your assets how you would like, which is why we encourage our clients to create an estate plan with an experienced lawyer's assistance. We never use a cookie-cutter design for estate plans, because we understand that every client has different needs and expectations. If our clients have any questions regarding probate or estate planning, we are more than happy to answer their questions to the best of our ability. Since our clients are our number one priority, we strive to give every client excellent representation with a personal touch.

Our team is fluent in both English and Spanish, which increases our ability to provide legal service to a vast range of clientele. We have been assisting clients in Puerto Rico and Tampa for years, and we have experience with every type of probate and estate planning cases. Not only that, but we may be able to help clients who need civil affair, notary, and bankruptcy aid. For our Puerto Rico clients, we provide public notary and civil litigation services. If a client needs a government document signed, or an attorney to represent them in a real estate case, we may be able to help.
