What Decisions Do I Make in an Estate Plan?
Estate planning allows you to redistribute your property, finances, and other assets to your chosen beneficiaries. Our clients are unique, and so too will be our approach to your specific situation. Some of the tasks we can help you with as you begin estate planning are:
- Preparing a will
- Preparing a list of your assets
- Deciding on beneficiaries and the assets each of them will receive
- Planning for estate taxes
- Appointing durable powers of attorney
- Creating an advance health care directive
- Organizing all your important documents
Essentially, estate planning allows us to take inventory of what you have and who you have to give it to, and then formulate the appropriate plans to do so.
Why Do I Need an Estate Plan?
Establishing an estate plan allows you to secure the best future for you and your loved ones. As soon as you start gaining assets or passing milestones in life like starting a family, it’s important to have a plan in place to protect them in case something happens to you. Estate planning helps you:
- Prepare for incapacitation: If you endure an accident that leaves you incapacitated, having a durable power of attorney named in your estate plan allows your wishes for medical directives or other decisions regarding you and your property to be made as you want them to in accordance with your estate plan.
- Prepare for retirement: Estate planning helps you redistribute assets to family members to help you become eligible for Medicaid while keeping your heirlooms in your family.
- Minimize costs: With a comprehensive estate plan, your family may be spared of enduring probate, which presents extra fees.
- Provide for your family sooner: If your redistribution plan is clearly outlined, the process is streamlined, and your beneficiaries can receive your gifted assets much sooner.
Overall, estate planning offers you peace of mind. You can prepare for your life and the future of your family. Start today so that you can enjoy tomorrow. Contact our Seminole estate planning attorneys to review your case and begin planning.

She and her entire team truly care about their clients.- Chelsie L.
As a family member who has provided support for seven family members as they moved through the continuum of being healthy and independent to requiring end-of-life care, I can heartily recommend the Hill and Kinsella Law Firm. I was referred to April Hill by my own stellar estate planning attorney when I needed assistance with my parents in the Tampa Bay area. I couldn't be more pleased with the entire process for creating updated documents to the execution of those documents to follow-up counsel in applying the documents. If you are considering an attorney/firm to help you with this part of your life or are a family member who needs guidance, call Hill and Kinsella. They will make things clear and simple for you.- Tracy S.
April rescued me with helping my mother transition into an assisted living facility plus deal with an unruly family member. April's knowledge, professionalism along with her warm and caring understanding of the emotions involved in trying to do the very best for my mother was exemplary! My family and I will forever be grateful to April! My husband and I have done our will through April and we always recommend her to friends and family. God bless you and your very capable staff!- Patricia C.
Over the years Hill & Kinsella have professionally assisted with my legal needs and I would recommend their firm for the best Elder Law professional service in Pinellas County.- Michael C.
Thanks to April Hill, my sisters and I were able to better take care of Mom and when she passed, handle her affairs more easily. Now that it was time for me to revise my will, I came to April. She has well-advised me and I am grateful for her knowledge and help for my future. When the time comes that my family has to deal with my estate, their work will be easier for this planning. Having settled estates for two of my relatives myself, I can provide my loved ones with an easier time taking care of things when I am gone. Thanks, April for your help!- Ginger P.
April and her team were asked to take over my mother's estate as my previous attorney was unable to finish. April & Team were wonderful. This was not a run of the mill probate. There were several issues left hanging by my previous attorney and April cleared everything up quickly. Hill & Kinsella is a great law firm. I'm so grateful our paths crossed.- Former Client
