Panama City Probate Attorney

Max W. McCord III

As an Estates & Trusts attorney in Panama City, Florida, I provide a full range of legal services for my clients' personal and business needs. This includes areas such as tax focused estate planning and estate administration (probate). The purpose of this website is to give an overview of my practice, but it should not be a substitute for calling me about your situation.

I also advise clients with business planning issues including complex business structures and closely held entities. Business principals should generally seek assistance before making decisions. Investor/Partnership agreements are an example of an area that can make the difference between long-term success and instant failure. Obviously, perfect documentation will not make a business successful; but a flawed foundation can break an otherwise viable opportunity.

I am a graduate of University of Florida, Levin College of Law and I received an LL.M. in Taxation from Georgetown University. I started my legal career at a large firm in south Florida. I then moved to a practice with two local attorneys. As a sole practitioner, when you work with me, you will have the confidence of knowing who is ultimately responsible for handling your case.

As a Panama City probate attorney, I focus on assisting clients with estate planning, guardianship, probate, probate & trust litigation, taxable estates, trusts and wills. If you are interested in discussing how my services could help your particular situation, please consider giving me a call.

Probate & Tax Attorney Serving Panama City

I am an experienced estate planning & estate administration (probate) attorney. I assist clients with complex estate planning and estate administration / probate cases. Clients, creditors, and even attorneys who do not regularly practice in this area are often surprised by the results of seemingly insignificant clauses, maneuvers, notices, etc.

I help clients in Panama City with planning and administering both taxable and non-taxable estates. This is a two sided process, and a good working relationship with my clients is something I strive for. I am accessible to my clients, and try to provide a clear time frame for the project. Every client and their respective families will have particular needs, and I focus on preparing documents tailored to meet these needs. As such, I prefer to have clients that are also accessible to me (in terms of returned phone calls, e-mails, etc.)

Work with a Panama City Probate Lawyer

I recognize that no two cases will ever be the same. Your story, your background, and your estate will be different. It is important to me that I can provide personalized care and attention to each case. I do not prepare "cookie-cutter" testamentary documents (wills & trusts). I'll be glad to speak with you if you are seeking probate representation, or if you would like to discuss your estate plan.

If you live or work in the Panama City area (Bay County and the surrounding counties), I will be happy to talk with you. As a Panama City Estates & Trusts attorney, I offer accessibility, accuracy, and a commitment to work efficiently. I assist my clients with everything from basic estate plans to preparing for litigation.

Do you need legal help with an estate, business, or tax issue? Please consider contacting Panama City probate attorney Max W. McCord III.
