5/5 Star Service

Javier gets the job done, and done well, no matter the circumstance.

I was in the Marine Corps with Javier Centonzio many moons ago, before 9/11. He was a highly motivated and highly respected leader in his unit. Someone you could depend on to get the job done, and done well, no matter the circumstance. When the balloon goes up, he is a man you want on your side.

Probate

Probate is the legal process of administering a person’s estate. This means you still have options if someone passes without a will. It can be complex, but that shouldn’t discourage you. Whether someone died with a will (testate) or without a will (intestate), we can guide you through Florida’s probate courts with sound advice.
