Kitroser, Lewis & Mighdoll in North Palm Beach and Stuart, Florida, is devoted to ensuring that gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning individuals and couples are afforded the same protections as their heterosexual counterparts. The LGBTQ community continues to face great societal challenges whether single, in a relationship or married. LGBTQ estate planning clients deserve the same exact practical tools and knowledge irrespective of their sexual orientation.
“My law firm utilizes our experience in confronting legal issues that are for the most part germane only to the LGBTQ community” – Attorney Mitchell I. Kitroser.
We help clients put in place as many protections as possible to help make certain that LGBTQ individuals, couples and families are treated fairly under the law. We use documents such as durable powers of attorney, HIPAA waivers and health care proxies to guarantee that our client’s designated agent, partner or spouse is afforded access to financial and medical information and has decision making powers in times of crises. When necessary, we aggressively advocate for our clients to ensure that their rights and decisions are honored and respected.
Additionally, we work with our LGBTQ clients in matters involving children. If one partner or spouse is the biological parent of a child, the other partner or spouse may have no legal rights to that child, particularly if the biological parent dies. We can prepare documentation to secure the parental rights of both partners and spouses. In appropriate circumstances, we can set up a standby guardianship, appointing a partner or spouse as the standby guardian before an emergency occurs.
In cases of emergency, Kitroser, Lewis & Mighdoll’s digital document warehousing can be especially useful. This service ensures that your designated agent, partner, or spouse has ready access to critical documents that may be required in serious illness and end-of-life situations. The firm is always prepared to stand behind their clients where advocacy is needed to protect and support the plan that has been put in place.
“Anyone can prepare documents. What a client needs is an attorney who will help their clients in an emergency.” – Attorney Mitchell I. Kitroser
