Ocala Probate Attorney

Janet BehnkeDeath is disruptive. Not only does it disrupt families and relationships, it also disrupts property and financial matters. Grief at the death of a family member can be overwhelming. It is essential when confronted with such grief and disruption to find a lawyer with the professional experience necessary to minimize the disruption.

A Marion County Probate Lawyer Who Is Dedicated to Her Clients

I am attorney Janet Behnke. I have more than forty years experience in probate law and the administration of estates. I have lived in Ocala for most of my life and care about serving the people of my community. I have served as the president of the Ocala Marion County Chamber of Commerce, the president of the Marion County Bar Association and I am a former judge. At my Florida firm, Janet W. Behnke, P.A., we consider it a privilege to represent a client, and we take pride in working with our clients on a personal level to minimize the disruption the death of a family member has brought upon the family.

Not all deaths require probate, whether or not the decedent had a will. As an experienced real property and probate lawyer, I can help a client determine whether formal, summary or ancillary administration is required, or whether nothing at all is required. Cost and time vary in probate cases, although most can be handled in approximately six months. If a probate proceeding is required, we will advise you what procedure is proper and the estimated cost and time involved based upon the unique circumstances of your situation.
