St. Petersburg Wills, Trusts & Probate Attorneys

Protect Your Loved Ones & Secure Your Assets

At Battaglia, Ross, Dicus & McQuaid, P.A., we believe that your assets should be protected against creditors, predators, divorce, and even the poor decisions of your heirs themselves. We believe that you, not the government, should determine how your assets are distributed when you pass away, that your estate should not be gutted by onerous death taxes, and that your life savings should not be depleted in order to obtain long-term medical care. We can help you protect your legacy and your loved ones.

Contrary to popular belief, estate planning is not only for the phenomenally wealthy; rather, every family should have an estate plan of its own. Foundational estate planning documents include at minimum: Last Will & Testament, Durable Power of Attorney, Advance Health Care Directives, including a Living Will, and in many cases, a Revocable Living Trust. Whatever your unique situation, the attorneys at Battaglia, Ross, Dicus & McQuaid, P.A. will custom tailor a solution that meets your specific needs in a sensitive and confidential environment.

In addition to estate planning services, our attorneys are experienced trust and probate litigators. If you find yourself subject to a probate or trust lawsuit, or if you or a loved one has been taken advantage of by a relative or care giver, contact us today.
