Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts and Estates, Probate and Trust Administration, Corporations and Partnerships, Taxation, and Real Estate

The Silberstein Law Firm, PLLC, was founded in 2011 by David M. Silberstein, who has practiced law for over 30 years. David is a Florida Bar Board Certified Tax Attorney and a Florida Bar Board Certified Wills, Trusts, and Estates Attorney.  He has held both of those Certifications since 1998, and is considered an expert in both of those fields of law by the Florida Bar.

Our staff has worked with us for many years and assists our firm in representing our client’s legal needs.  We strive for personal service.  We know our clients by name, and demonstrate empathy by providing our services in a timely and efficient manner.

Our firm focuses on legal advice for personal and business life-cycle events, business transactions, real estate transactions, and litigation.

Personal and business advice involves estate planning, wills, trusts, probate and estates, estate settlements, trust formation, administration and settlements, corporate, partnership and business law, tax law, and estate, gift, and generation skipping tax law.  We assist clients in planning for wealth transfers during life and at death (estate and gift tax planning), succession planning, preparation and review of various documents and techniques, including wills, revocable trusts, charitable trusts, life insurance and other irrevocable trusts, family limited partnerships, and the administration of trusts and estates after death (including probate).  We advise clients in asset and stock purchases and sales, mergers, and other business transactions.  Our practice further involves planning for the formation, acquisition, operation, sale and dissolution of corporations, partnerships, joint ventures, limited liability companies, limited liability partnerships, and limited liability limited partnerships.

We advise our clients on real estate transactions and related matters, and can provide representation in litigation involving commercial disputes, homeowner association matters, and probate litigation.  We also represent our clients in various forms of alternative dispute resolution involving arbitration and mediation.  Our representation in probate matters involves settlement of disputed estates, proceedings to enforce wills and trusts, challenges to revoke wills and trusts,  and resolution of matters involving undue influence and estate planning procured through other methods including fraud.

Planning in these areas is personal to each client, requiring that we focus on each client’s personal and financial goals and needs in addressing the client’s legal needs.  Our boutique practice allows us to focus on specific areas of law to better serve you.  We work with each client’s other professional advisors, including certified public accountants (‘CPAs’) investment advisors, insurance agents, and realtors.  We are AV-rated by Martindale Hubbell, and involved in many state bar activities.

We have two offices to serve your needs, and are available for consultations and appointments.  We also affiliate with other attorneys and professionals to assist with your case.  If you would like more information about our practice or scheduling an appointment, or if we can assist you with a referral to another attorney, call us at your convenience.  We look forward to the opportunity to assist you in planning, structuring, and organizing your personal and business affairs, real estate matters, and litigation and dispute resolution.
