Estate Planning

David F. Hanley, P.A. offers highly personalized services in the area of estate planning, and routinely works closely with the client’s accountant, financial planner and other advisors to minimize estate taxes, preserve wealth and carry out a client’s final intentions. Vehicles routinely used to achieve these goals include:

- Wills

- Trusts

- Powers of Attorney

- Living Wills

- Health Care Surrogate Designations

- Life Insurance Trusts

- Special Needs Trusts

- Premarital Agreements

The cost of legal services for estate planning are small in comparison to the cost to your estate and family of doing no planning. "Cookie cutter" forms downloaded from the internet are no substitute for experienced professional legal services. Legal fees will be estimated for you at the first meeting and are based on the level of complexity and the amount of professional time required in order to accomplish your objectives.



Mr. Hanley’s practice covers all cities in Broward County, including Fort Lauderdale, Davie, Plantation, Cooper City, Sunrise, Miramar, Weston, Pembroke Pines, and Hollywood. Mr. Hanley also regularly represents clients in Palm Beach County and Miami-Dade County, and handles probate matters throughout the State of Florida.

Representation and Fees

Representation commences once a written engagement letter is executed. Fee structures vary by the matter being handled. Depending on the type of matter, fees may be a reasonable hourly rate depending upon the anticipated demands and timeline of the case, flat fee all-inclusive arrangements or hybrid arrangements. Mr. Hanley’s goal is to tailor fees to fairly capture the level of service and work provided and the value conferred to his client. Fees vary because they always depend on the seriousness of the matter at stake, the timing and expediency of the matter, the anticipated volume and complexity of work, the desired results and other client expectations.
