Biography

For many years my practice was in telecommunications for the federal and state government and in private practice. I handled some of the biggest cases including litigation and legislation relating to competition between companies.

When I started my law practice in Florida I decided to specialize in estate planning and real estate. During the Florida (and other places in real estate I focused on providing defense to foreclosures against the banks). Thankfully that practice area has diminished. Now during the pandemic, my practice has centered around writing wills and trusts, powers of attorney and advanced medical directives. These documents are vital for all ages requires us to think about all kinds of alternatives.

I am still involved in real estate transactions since Florida is growing as people are now working from home and may prefer the all year climate.

I specialize in providing personal interaction by getting to know my clients life styles and plans. I enjoy one on one contact and don't turn over my work to assistants.

Legal Answers
38 Questions Answered
Q. I am the beneficiary in my spouse's will. I am changing my whole name, first name and adding his last name.
A: Will could be redone to add a/k/a next to your name. Will would have to be resigned and witnessed and that would be true with a codicil. Any change requires it to be reexecuted with same formality as before. If you do nothing and it went to probate you would have to provide evidence of the name change.

Q. I have 4 sons. 1 son is coming to live and care for me I am 80. When I pass I want to be sure that he can continue to
A: You could give the son who is living with you a Live Estate and then have the other sons and him be the remaindermen so they would get the property when you die. This can be done through a deed. Ellen DeutschTaylor 727 365-3121
Q. I am a low income senior and can't find anyone to notarize the will I created on-line. Who can help me?
A: Wills must be witnessed by two people and notarized if you are using a self proving clause. You should have your will reviewed by an attorney to make sure it complies with Florida law. Ellen Deutsch Taylor
