Personal Representative

Heidi Webb is an outstanding attorney, she has helped me tremendously with my company and personal work also with Estate Planning and Will.

~ Debra Walter

Our experience with Heidi Webb was fantastic. She explained all that was needed to build our estate planning. The customer service that was provided was well above excellent. We requested our estate plan be available to us in a short period of time. This was well met and gave us a great sense of gratitude. We can now go on with doing what we do and not have to worry about our estate, knowing that all our documents are now in order for our family.

No-contest clause

Can I Put a No-Contest Clause in my Will?


Short answer, you can, but it will not be enforceable in Florida.

No-contest clauses have been used in Wills for centuries and are used to keep beneficiaries from fighting over an estate. In layman’s terms, this language states that if a beneficiary contests the document’s validity and loses, that beneficiary receives nothing.

Even if your Estate Plan was drafted in another state and included this language, a no-contest clause is unenforceable in Florida. While Florida courts won’t enforce a no-contest clause in a Will or trust, there may be other ways to minimize – although not eliminate – the possibility of litigation. Therefore, I recommend discussing this issue with your Estate Planning Attorney on your specific situation to draft up a plan to meet your individual needs.
