MIAMI, FL, September 1, 2016—TrustCounsel, an estate and trust law firm, opens a new office in Miami. The space in downtown’s Miami Center supports the firm’s growing trust and estate clientele in Florida.
The Miami office continues to service trustees and executors in trust administration, probate, and related tax matters. An affiliated company, TrustProtector, LLC, provides trust protector services, a burgeoning area of law supporting trustees and beneficiaries of irrevocable trusts with trust administration issues.
It is challenging for executors to stay current with legislative changes. Legislators recently passed the Florida Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act, a piece of law that streamlines a personal representative’s access to digital data. Progressive probate counsel is becoming a priority for many executors in Florida and across the country.
TrustCounsel’s President Gregory Herman-Giddens is a graduate of the University of Miami School of Law, receiving an LL.M. in Estate Planning in 1993. Herman-Giddens has practiced law in Florida since 1992. “We’re currently celebrating our firm’s 20th anniversary. Moving into a new office is a fitting way of marking this milestone, and a great opportunity to continue to build our practice in Florida,” he says. The new downtown Miami office is located at 201 South Biscayne Boulevard, Suite 2650, Miami, Florida 33131. His firm has locations in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and New York City.
When a loved one dies, TrustCounsel helps protect the family legacy by navigating legal, financial, and tax matters.
