Why should you worry about estate planning?

Contrary to what you might think, estate planning can benefit Florida residents of all income levels. Regardless of the size of your estate or the amount of money you have in savings, you have the right to decide what will happen to your property after you pass away.

You may not realize that estate planning involves much more than just deciding what will happen to your property and your money in the future. It can help you determine the intentional distribution of your estate to specific beneficiaries, as well as allow you to outline your wishes for health care. You can even plan for the care of a special needs loved one. You would be prudent to consider how you can benefit from a thoughtful and updated estate plan.

Drafting strong employment contracts to protect your business

Businesses face a myriad of legal challenges, and effectively dealing with employees is one of them. Florida employers may find it beneficial to know how to protect their interests in order to avoid legal complications as much as possible, and one effective way to do this is by drafting thoughtful and thorough employee contracts.

Employee contracts outline your responsibilities as an employer, as well as the responsibilities of the individuals who work for you. By specifically spelling out certain things, both sides can clearly understand and acknowledge obligations and rights. A well-worded employment contract can be beneficial for both parties, as well as help you avoid unnecessary legal disputes with employees.

Start with the right steps when starting a small business

Owning and operating a small business is part of the American dream for many Florida entrepreneurs. If this is part of your dream, it would be wise for you to take certain steps before jumping right in. With thoughtful preparation and experienced legal guidance, you can set your business up in a way that lays the foundation for your success long into the future.

There are various legal steps you have to take as you start a business. From choosing an entity to writing a business plan, there are many things to consider as you prepare. It can be helpful to first secure appropriate guidance as you navigate some of these issues and decisions.

Has work changed since your boss learned you're pregnant?

You might be one of many Florida residents who loves going to work every day. Perhaps, you're one of the few who, since childhood, dreamed of working in particular field, then actually brought that dream to fruition. If so, you'd likely agree with those who say work is a blessing, and they're grateful for their jobs. Even if you like your job, however, it's highly unlikely that every single day will be perfect. Like all working environments, yours probably has its ups and downs.

If the downs are becoming more frequent, and you believe it has something to do with the fact that you recently shared the wonderful news of your pregnancy with your boss, you are definitely not alone, as many women across the nation have experienced unfair negative consequences related to pregnancy  in the workplace.

Top 2 ways to keep assets away from your creditors when you die


In most instances, when we die, our estate goes through what’s known as the probate process. The probate process involves many steps. First, our assets and debts are established. Then, taxes and other debts are paid to our creditors. After that, our assets are distributed to our heirs or designated beneficiaries.
