Leaving Your Legacy in the Right Hands.

How We Serve

Well, it's a ton to do on your own. Allow us to illustrate.


In order to create a complete and effective estate plan there are many factors to consider. Determined by the size and complexity of your estate, you may need a combination of wills and trusts to achieve your goals of distributing your estate in a way that avoids probate and maximizes the tax benefits available to you and your heirs. One might also consider asset preservation and business succession planning. The powers of attorney and advance directives that must be included to guarantee that your healthcare and financial affairs are properly looked after during any period of incapacitation you may encounter are also important. At Akel Law, our Tampa estate planning lawyers will assist you.

Our Muslim Clients

In addition to all of the regular concerns that come along with estate plans, it can be especially challenging for our Muslim friends. 

Most Muslim immigrants come from countries where Islamic Law of Inheritance is the norm, it's something they don't think about or have to worry about. My desire and aim is to give them a sense of comfort knowing their families will have a plan when their time comes.

Why We Serve This Way

At Akel Law, we are proactive and like to get out in front of things. One of the things that draws us to Estate Planning is how problems can be foreseen and dealt with before they become major issues. Estate Planning is meant to be a lower cost alternative to Probate and ensure a smooth transition of passing assets after death.


This is one of the main reasons why we choose this field of law. We have watched the hassles and obstacles create turmoil and tear families apart. We want to protect our clients and prevent those moments and create peace. 

Powers of Attorney:

This is one of the most important documents in your estate plan. It gives authority to your chosen agent over your assets during incapacity prior to death. 

Pre-need Guardianship:

Once declared by a court to be incapacitated, this document gives your guardian the authority to act on your behalf for decisions of life and assets.

Healthcare Directives:

This set of documents makes known your health care wishes to family, friends and doctors. It also names a proxy to make decisions for you based on your wishes.

Creation of Will/Trust:

The will or trust is the portion of an estate plan that directly governs how your assets will be distributed and whether or not probate is necessary.


When assets that you own upon your death need to pass ownership, probate is a court supervised process for handling this transfer.

Estate Planning:

Your estate is the net worth of all your assets. An estate plan sets rules for handling your assets in the event of incapacity or death.
