Here are some of the legal services we provide for Miramar residents:

  1. Living Trust. A living trust is simply detailed legal instructions. It is also a powerful legal instrument to:

    • Make sure your loved ones are cared for if you cannot;
    • Avoid a court intervening in your personal and financial affairs if you suffer a temporary or permanent mental incapacity;
    • Avoid the high cost, time, and bureaucracy of probate court; and
    • Keep legal control in your family.

    For more information regarding how a living trust can help you as a Miramar resident, see our publication: Understanding Living Trusts or Comprendiendo Fideicomisos De Vida.

  2. Miramar Business Legal Services

    A major theme of our practice is helping to keep you and your business out of court so you can keep your focus on growing your business. For a Miramar small business this often means:

    • Make sure your company is structured to provide maximum protection. For example, if your company is a LLC located in Miramar, it requires a robust operating agreement that clearly limits potential creditors to a single unattractive remedy.
    • If you have a partner, you most likely do not want to end up with your partner’s spouse as your partner if that partner gets divorced, is involved in a serious accident, or dies. Typically, you should have a Shareholder’s Agreement that minimizes business interruption if these events happen and provides a clear exit strategy that protects your investment of sweat and money.

    A good legal plan minimizes and avoid disputes, and keeps the focus on making money. Attorneys at Rarick & Bowden Gold, P.A. can help you keep the focus on making money. For small business entrepreneurs, we offer a free initial consultation.

  3. Miramar Probate Legal Services

    Probate is the legal process for transferring assets upon death to the legal heirs of decedent.

    Florida probate has always been a costly, bureaucratic and time-consuming process. With recent cuts in Florida court staff, it has become even more costly. As mentioned, with advanced planning, you can often avoid probate. However, if probate is necessary upon death of a loved one, we can assist. Here are some helpful guides that we have prepared for Miramar residents:

  4. Miramar Asset Protection Services

    We take pride in helping the doctor, professional, or small business owner in Miramar fight back in a legal climate where a single lawsuit can wipe out a lifetime of savings.
