Brett Halperin is the founding member and managing partner of Halperin Law Group (HLG). He focuses his practice on Estate Planning, Probate/Trust Administration, Elder Law and Asset Protection. Brett started HLG after becoming frustrated with the lack of personal attention given to clients by other law firms. He believes that every client, regardless of the size of their estate, deserves compassionate and professional legal assistance.

At HLG, Brett works with clients of all asset levels to help them plan their estates, including the transfer of assets and wealth to their preferred beneficiaries efficiently and economically. As part of his practice, Brett also assists clients in navigating the emotional and complex probate process after the loss of a loved one. Additionally, he is qualified to help elderly clients navigate the Medicaid application process and, if necessary, divest their assets to qualify.

Educating clients about the pitfalls of failing to plan is something that Brett takes seriously and is passionate about. He accomplishes this by speaking at seminars throughout the State of Florida, as well as by taking the time with each client to ensure their understanding of the nuances of their specific legal situation and their comfort with the prepared documents.

Brett has worked for both large and small firms since graduating from the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Before that, he earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Florida. He was selected as a member of Florida Blue Key, the University of Florida’s oldest and most prestigious honor society. Currently, he volunteers his time with the Mission United Veterans Pro-Bono Legal Project, which provides free legal services for veterans and their families. He also volunteers with the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, where he serves on the Board of Directors of the Young Adult Division and Men’s Division. Brett is a member in good standing with the Florida Bar.
