As founder of the Law Offices of Samantha J. Fitzgerald, Ms. Fitzgerald understands the importance of providing clients with personal attention. She represents people in Plantation, Florida, who are dealing with probate and estate planning issues.

Having a solid background in the issues surrounding estate planning gives Ms. Fitzgerald the ability to develop a successful strategy for every case.

She stays on top of legal trends through her involvement with the Florida Lawyers Network, the Broward County Bar Association and The Florida Bar's Tax and Real Property, Probate and Trust Law sections.

Her commitment to clients and her community has earned Ms. Fitzgerald a number of awards. She has received the highest rating possible of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell; she holds an Avvo "Superb" rating and Florida Trend magazine has listed her as a Legal Elite.

Ms. Fitzgerald is admitted to practice before the U.S. Tax Court and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. When she is not at her practice, she enjoys giving back to her community and spending time with her husband and two children.
