Meet Your Attorney

ATTORNEY LAWRENCE D. SCHOTT has over twenty-eight (28) years of legal experience, specializing in divorce and family law, probate, guardianship, wills, trusts and civil litigation. He received his undergraduate & graduate educations at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida where he was awarded a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science with Honors in 1987, and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Florida College of Law in 1990. Mr. Schott is an active member of the Florida Bar, and continuously in good standing since his admission in 1990( FOR OVER 28 YEARS!). He is also licensed to practice in the United States District Courts for both the Southern and Middle Districts of Florida. Prior to starting his own firm in 1995, Mr. Schott worked for 2 South Florida law firms specializing in insurance defense, both of which afforded Mr. Schott a wealth of hands-on courtroom and full litigation experience in the course of his defending insureds which included major airlines in cases arising from mass casualty airplane crashes, cruise line accidents and other admiralty cases, as well as huge multi-national corporations involved as litigants in a wide-variety of highly complex, multi-million dollar litigation. As such, Mr. Schott brings you his “big firm” experience while always providing his clients with “small firm” attention.

Mr. Schott was born in Huntington, New York, but has resided in South Florida since 1983. He currently lives in Weston, Florida with his wife of 24 years, Robin, and his daughter, Sophie, and their dog, Stanley. He loves the beach (which he can almost, but not quite, see from his office…) or just being outside and enjoying time with his family in the year-round beautiful South Florida sun, warmth and weather. Mr. Schott firmly believes that there’s nothing more important than family – and vigorously protecting and providing for their health, safety and happiness – and he strives each and every day to provide those same protections for all of his clients, and their families, and their legal interests, and he’ll do the same for you! Again. When searching for the best lawyer, don’t just take a shot in the dark — take the best SCHOTT! Call SCHOTT LAW now @ (954)455-3399.

Guardianship and Probate

Probate law and guardianship representation are two fields we specialize in as well. When you are giving control over the estate of a deceased loved one, emotions typically run high. We are here to make sure that your loved ones name isn’t tarnished and that the estate that they bestowed upon you is dealt with and distributed appropriately. If you are also given legal custody of an individual; we are here to help guide you through the process.

Wills and Trusts

If you are concerned about the financial security of your family, then you may wish to consider meeting with an attorney to discuss the preparation of an estate plan. You might already have a specific idea of what you’d like to see done in preparing your estate plan, but if not, we can help you in determining your goals and objectives, and then discuss your options afterwards. It’s generally prudent to address these issues early – certainly before life situations turn them into decisions that need to be made on an emergency basis.
