Palm Beach Gardens Estate Planning Lawyer for Vulnerable Beneficiaries

Serving Clients with Compassion & Respect

Witnessing a family member's physical, mental, or emotional deterioration due to mental health issues, addiction, or another disability is heartbreaking. In the face of a loved one's problem, our natural instinct is to do everything in our power to help. For family members who struggle with these issues, help can come in the form of placement in a facility or similar program. These situations are further exacerbated when the loved one is also a beneficiary to a trust that enables his or her dysfunction. In these situations, it is vital for families and trustees to work with an attorney who understands the sensitive dynamics involved in these matters.

At The Law Office of Nicole C. Morris, P.A., our Palm Beach Gardens estate planning lawyer represents families and trustees throughout South Florida who are concerned that a beneficiary has:

  • Mental health issues
  • Disabilities
  • Substance abuse problems

We provide a full range of trust administration and estate planning services and bring significant experience and guidance to this field of the law.

Experience to Help You Make Difficult Decisions

When a beneficiary suffers from addiction, mental health problems, or a disability, we recognize the necessity of balancing the concern for that loved one with the trustee's duties under the law. We know that families want their loved one to receive the care that he or she needs. Our attorney also understands that each trustee has the duty to distribute trust assets to beneficiaries in the manner set forth by the settlor of the trust.

In this delicate area of law, there is simply no substitute for a lawyer with direct experience handling these issues. At The Law Office of Nicole C. Morris, P.A., we have represented many families and trustees who need skilled legal counsel to manage these challenging situations. Our lawyer can help you understand your options, including the possibility of Marchman Act proceedings for individuals with substance abuse problems, and Baker Act proceedings for people with mental health issues. Once we have decided on a course of action, we can act effectively and decisively to achieve a favorable outcome under the circumstances.

We offer a complimentary consultation to discuss your needs in detail. Call (561) 220-3307 or contact us online to schedule an appointment.
