Whether you need assistance putting together an estate plan to manage the growth and distribution of your assets, administering the estate of a loved one, or litigating a trust or probate dispute, you can rely on the decades of experience offered by our knowledgeable, compassionate attorneys and staff at The Yates Law Firm, P.A.



For over 30 years, The Yates Law Firm in Tampa, Florida, has successfully guided its clients through matters related to wills, trusts, and estates. A woman-owned law firm with a dedicated staff, we have decades of combined experience with Florida probate, trust litigation, and related matters. Our founding attorney has practiced law for more than 35 years, and our support staff all together bring more than 25 years of combined experience to our firm.

Estate planning is not only for the wealthy; people of modest means can benefit by thinking about the future and how they would like to distribute their homes, cars, and personal property. By undertaking estate planning, they can structure their resources to protect themselves, their parents, and their children in the event of serious injury or untimely death.

Our firm works closely with clients as we start the estate planning process by:
•    Listening to our client's needs, wishes, desires, and goals
•    Analyzing the options available
•    Developing a plan to reach the goals or solve the problems
•    Implementing the plan, drafting needed documents, and answering client questions


Our dedication to our clients goes beyond estate planning and administration. When a will or trust is the subject of a dispute, our law firm is a respected resource in the legal community for probate litigation; other lawyers turn to us for guidance in such matters and often entrust their clients to our firm for litigated estate matters. Our own clients as well as those from other firms rely on us to aggressively protect their interests in court if the need arises.
