About Meryl

Meryl Conte Clayton, a New Jersey native and long-time Florida resident, has been a practicing attorney for more than 32 years – admitted to practice law in New Jersey in 1984 and in Florida in 1995. She maintains active practices in both states focusing on the areas of estate planning, probate and trust administration, guardianship, elder law, real estate, and business law. Meryl is committed to leveraging her vast wealth of experience to help individuals and families plan their legacies, protect their loved ones, and, when necessary, facilitate the resolution of unfortunate family disputes. She seeks to accomplish her client's goals of health care and financial care before and distribution of the estate following death. With practical advice and compassion, Meryl assists her clients with understanding the value of their estates and with choosing and executing appropriate estate planning documents and trusts. Meryl's New Jersey – Florida connection represents a powerful advantage for her clients. Meryl can advise clients on issues, institute court proceedings, and file necessary documents in both states for the convenience of families with homes or assets in Florida and New Jersey. Meryl is able to advise residents of New Jersey and the North East who wish to relocate and retire to Florida on the state's homestead and residency requirements so her client's may enjoy the benefits of Florida's favorable tax and estate laws. Meryl has been a Member Agent with Attorney's Title Insurance Fund, Florida, and is licensed to write title in Florida. She has represented purchasers and sellers of real estate, both commercial and residential, with preparation and review of documents and title, deed transfers, and conducting closings.
