Counsel For A Range of Legal Issues

Elder Law & Estate Planning

It has been said that “if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”. Many people are uncomfortable talking about the death or disability of themselves and their loved ones. However, failing to plan for the future will almost guarantee unnecessary burden, heartache, and legal trouble for you and your family down the road. Florida law allows individuals to make many decisions regarding healthcare, asset distribution, and the care of their dependents in advance, so that they can avoid having a stranger make them instead. Bottom line: it is never too early or too late to get your affairs in order. We work with both young and elderly clients to set up their:

  • Last Will and Testament
  • Trusts
  • Living Wills
  • Health Care Surrogate Designations
  • Durable and Limited Powers of Attorney
  • Do Not Resuscitate Orders (DNRs)
  • Guardianships

Central Florida Attorneys Working For You

  • Purchase & sale agreements
  • Real estate closings
  • Leases (commercial & residential)
  • Landlord/Tenant disputes, evictions, & litigation

Finding Resolutions Outside the Courtroom

Private Civil Mediation

The role of a mediator as a third-party neutral is to reduce obstacles to communication, assist in the identification of issues and exploration of solutions, and facilitate voluntary agreement between the parties. The ultimate decision-making authority, however, rests solely with the parties at mediation. That’s why it has been called a process of “self- determination”—it is the parties, not the judge, who get to decide their outcome. As a Florida Supreme Court Certified Civil Mediator, Justin S. Munizzi offers private, professional, and discreet mediation for businesses and individuals who would prefer to resolve their disputes outside of the courtroom, and off the public record.
