Attorney Profile

The founder of and managing partner at Galbraith, PLLC, Brad A. Galbraith focuses his practice on estate planning and administration matters. From the firm’s two offices in Naples, Florida, and Indianapolis, Indiana, he provides representation to clients throughout both of those areas. Admitted to practice in Florida since 2001 and in Indiana since 1994, Mr. Galbraith is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Indiana, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, and the U.S. Tax Court.

In his estate planning practice, Mr. Galbraith regularly prepares and reviews wills, revocable and irrevocable trusts, health care and financial powers of attorney, and advance medical directives. He goes further with many of his clients who have substantial assets and complex business and other holdings, however. In this regard, he assists them with business succession plans, domicile planning and advanced estate tax avoidance strategies. Mr. Galbraith’s experience has also encompassed sophisticated wealth preservation techniques, and he works with clients in constructing charitable giving programs. He has also prepared special needs trusts for those of his clients who have family members with cognitive or physical disabilities, and he has guided many of his clients through what is often a confusing probate process.

The high quality of his work along with his ethical approach to what are often sensitive matters have earned Mr. Galbraith a great deal of recognition from his colleagues, including an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a 10.0 “Superb” peer review rating through Avvo. The author of several publications related to his practice area, he is a summa cum laude graduate of the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.
