Welcome to the Cilek Law Firm
The Cilek Law Firm is committed to providing the highest standard of counsel in all estate planning, probate, and business succession planning matters.
Florida and Ancillary
In the absence of any planning to the contrary, your estate will be distributed according to Florida’s laws of intestacy. This so-called “default” estate plan might not reflect your wishes. However, if you do plan in advance, you can have your estate administered according to your preferences. A comprehensive estate plan may include a Last Will and Testament, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Advance Directives and Health Care Documents, all supporting your legal, personal, investment and tax planning purposes.
Probate is one manner in which estate assets are transferred after death. Since probate can be a lengthy, costly and public process, many people choose to avoid it. Without proper probate avoidance planning, the state will require a probate court proceeding for state residents or those who owned assets in the state. During probate, assets are managed, debts are paid, tax returns are filed along with various court documents, and the estate assets are distributed.
Just what is business succession planning? Business succession planning is the process of preparing to transfer control of a business to another person or business entity. The main objective of most business owners is to transfer the business to a third party in a way that minimally disrupts business operations and that maintains or even provides for enhanced valuation of the business for the owner transferring the business.
