Referring Attorneys

Huth, Pratt & Milhauser can serve as a solution to almost any problem that a referring attorney may encounter in trust, estate and guardianship matters. Many of the clients that we represent have been referred to us by attorneys who do not primarily practice in these areas. In addition, because most trust, estate and guardianship matters do not involve litigation, many attorneys who practice in these areas choose to refer out or work with co-counsel on litigated matters. Further, many attorneys lack the technical expertise to handle a complex asset protection case or to handle the probate of an estate that is subject to the federal estate tax. Cases that we typically accept from referring attorneys or serve as co-counsel include:

  • Will and trust contests based on undue influence or lack of capacity
  • Estate administration or probate proceedings that have turned adversarial
  • Adversarial proceedings within a routine probate administration
  • Guardianship administration proceedings that have turned adversarial
  • Trust administration proceedings that have turned adversarial
  • Complicated estate planning and asset protection matters
  • Complicated estate administration cases including taxable estates
  • Appeals in trust, estate and guardianship matters

We will work with referring attorneys at any level of involvement of their choosing.  Some lawyers want to work closely with us and their client as co-counsel.  Others prefer to give their client our name and have us completely handle the case.  We want to work with you to develop a longstanding referral relationship, regardless of your level of involvement. We co-counsel cases throughout South Florida and pay fees to co-counsel in accordance with the division of fees rules promulgated by The Florida Bar, if the case permits. Please contact us if you have a case that you would like to discuss or are considering a referral or co-counseling.
