About Law Offices of Samantha J. Fitzgerald

Since 1999, Samantha J. Fitzgerald has been helping clients protect their families with estate planning and probate & trust administration. We pride ourselves on combining the personalized service and attention of a boutique firm, with the talent and legal acumen of a large firm.

Our firm exclusively represents people who are dealing with probate, trust and estate planning issues. We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to estate planning and probate, so we customize plans for clients’ individual situations to meet their specific goals.

Believing it is important to help those in need, Samantha provides pro-bono legal work through Legal Aid and Put Something Back. She is also active in many charities and community organizations, including serving as a Mentor with Take Stock in Children, Executive Board for Florida Lawyer’s Network, Audit Committee for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Board of Directors for Plantation Junior Woman’s Club, as well as the President of the PTA at Peters Elementary and several positions within her church.

Samantha was born and raised on Long Island, New York and moved to Florida over 20 years ago. She currently lives in Plantation, Florida with her husband and two children.
