Creating Long-Term Peace Of Mind
Our goal is your goal — to create a plan that works for you and your family and gives you peace of mind. Ryan M. Mynard, Attorney at Law, P.A., has been providing estate planning services to families throughout Northwest Florida for more than 20 years.
We create and execute estate planning strategies that preserve wealth, provide for our clients’ loved ones, limit delays, and account for medical and financial contingencies. We want to help you, too.
Building Your Future
A primary aspect of estate planning is creating a will that is valid under Florida law. A will should distribute assets to your intended heirs in a way that is clear and avoids controversy down the road.
Whether you need to update an existing will or create a new one, we can help. Attorney Ryan M. Mynard will work with you to create a will or any other testamentary instrument — a living trust, for example — that fully covers your current and future assets, and provides for all beneficiaries for years to come.
We can work with you and your family members to create estate planning documents that provide for your ongoing needs as you age. To do this, we can help you designate individuals to make financial and medical decisions on your behalf through durable powers of attorney or a healthcare surrogate designation.
We Offer Experience And Versatility
Estate planning often intersects with other areas of law, including business law and real estate. We have extensive experience in these matters, and we account for our clients’ business and real estate investments when developing effective estate planning strategies.
We also protect the interests of all relevant parties in probate proceedings to ensure that assets are fairly and comprehensively distributed to the appropriate parties. This can be done according to a will or any other testamentary device, or according to state law if no will is in place. We handle probate matters in counties throughout Florida.
Why It’s Important To Start Planning Today
If you pass without an estate plan in place, your family may have to track down all your assets and debts, figure out how to work with your financial institutions to pay off those debts, and account to the probate court regarding your financial affairs. In the absence of a will, the court will determine who should receive your assets in accordance with state law. This process can be costly, and the results could be drastically different from the promises you made to your loved ones.
All of this can lead to lasting heartache among family members. We want to help you make your wishes clear and preserve the wealth you intend to pass on to heirs.
