At the Law Offices of Barbara Buxton, P.A., we help our clients in the counties of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach to decide in advance and for themselves how their estate and business will be passed from them to their loved ones. We advise our clients on how to avoid probate, arrange their affairs to ensure that their estate is distributed the way they wish; preserve wealth; plan for the possibility of incapacity and long-term care; minimize or eliminate estate taxes; and plan for the passing of a family business from one generation to the next.
