“Do I need an attorney to assist me with probate administration?”

This is a question I am asked often and the answer, the vast majority of times, is “yes.”  Florida Probate Rule 5.030 provides that “every guardian and every personal representative unless the personal representative remains the SOLE interested person, shall be represented by an attorney admitted to practice in Florida.”

So very simply, anyone who needs probate or guardianship help, who is not also a licensed lawyer in the State of Florida, must contact a Florida lawyer to assist with the proper administration of the estate.
