Decades Of Experience In Estate Planning And Probate
A real estate closing, the birth of a child, a vacation or other events often serve as reminders of the need for thoughtful estate planning that protects our loved ones. Without an effective estate plan, family members can be left with uncertainty, questions and confusion in an emotionally difficult time. If you do not have adequate estate planning documents in place, the state will decide how your assets will be distributed upon your death. At Coleman, Chambers & Rogers, LLP, our experienced Gainesville estate planning and probate lawyers help our clients develop estate plans that meet their objections, including asset protection and avoiding unnecessary estate taxes.
Let Us Help You Through Probate
Our attorneys are also familiar with the probate process and routinely assist clients with the administration of estates and trusts, represent clients in contested probate matters, and are qualified to answer your questions related to whether the circumstances surrounding the execution of a person’s last will and testament might be challenged via a caveat.
Personal Service For Everything You Need
- Wills and trusts: Have you determined how your property should be distributed? A last will and testament and/or a trust can assure that there will be no questions about your wishes.
- Estate litigation: When estates become contested, we can help. Whether it’s negotiating with creditors or a challenge to the validity of a will, our attorneys have experience handling disputed estates.
- Tax planning: We can assist you in minimizing the amount of your taxable estate. Whether it’s a credit shelter trust, a gifting plan or employing a family limited partnership to decrease estate taxes, our attorneys are familiar with the most utilized estate planning techniques.
- Health care directives: If you are unable to make your own health care decisions, are doctors and family members aware of your wishes? An advance directive for health care can guide them.
- Business succession planning: In a family business, it is important that the line of succession be clear so that the business can continue operating. Our attorneys have the estate planning and business law experience to properly advise you.
- Powers of attorney: Make sure you have the appropriate powers of attorney in place. A power of attorney can designate someone to act for you when you cannot make your own financial or medical decisions. These are just some of the family law issues we handle.

Cale Rogers represented me in a contested probate hearing where the personal representative of the Estate was using the assets of the Estate as their own and refused to provide an accounting to the beneficiaries. Cale filed a petition to have her removed as executor based on her wrongful actions. I recommend Cale Rogers as a local probate attorney who can assist you with probate administration, disputes and general filings with the probate courts.
