Welcome to Cramer Law Center

Welcome to the Cramer Law Center. Our law office is conveniently located in the Mandarin area of Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida. I am Jeffrey Cramer and as an estate planning lawyer I focus my practice on all aspects of estate planning for individuals and their families, asset protection and business planning for professionals and owners of small businesses, including preparing wills, trusts, living wills, powers of attorney, designations of healthcare surrogate, special needs trusts, revocable living trusts, buy-sell agreements, family partnerships, and family limited liability companies. The estate planning attorneys at the Cramer Law Center also focus on the legal needs of senior citizens, practicing in the area of elder law, including Medicaid planning and guardianships. In a guardianship proceeding, we can represent the interests of the person seeking to be appointed guardian or we can protect the interests of the ward, who is alleged to be incapacitated. We also are involved in all aspects of estate administration, including probate and trust administration. In situations where there has been no planning or ineffective planning, we also handle cases involving probate litigation, guardianship litigation, will contests, trust contests, disputes between heirs, removal of a trustee, removal of a personal representative, undue influence, probate fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, forged documents, trust reformation, or spouse’s elective share.

Our office is located in Duval County, but we also service the surrounding areas including Ponte Vedra Beach and St. Augustine in St. Johns County, Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island in Nassau County, Orange Park and Green Cove Springs in Clay County, Palatka in Putnam County, Palm Coast in Flagler County, MacClenny in Baker County, and Starke in Bradford County, in Northeast Florida. I hope you will find the information contained in this website useful and that you will feel free to contact an estate planning lawyer at the Cramer Law Center if you have any legal questions.

SENIOR DRIVING: FINDING A BALANCE BETWEEN INDEPENDENCE AND SAFETY

The number of seniors (Americans aged 65 or older) who drive is on the rise.  In fact, from 1999 to 2009, statistics show a 20% increase in senior drivers.  The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety predicts that this trend will continue; seniors will make up 25% of the drivers on the road by 2025 and there will be at least 60 million senior drivers by 2030.

Although we find these figures encouraging as advocates for maintaining independence as long as possible, other senior driving statistics give us pause.  For example, 95% of senior drivers take medications that could impair their driving.  Yet, alarmingly, less than 33% of them admit to awareness of the potential impact of their medications.  Moreover, fatality rates for older drivers are 17 times higher than those for 25- to 64-year-old drivers due to greater physical fragility.

Despite the real dangers of senior driving illuminated by these numbers, it is possible to address safety concerns while maintaining (or allowing your senior loved one to maintain) control and independence.  There are many great resources to help you strike this balance.  AAA has created a website with tools to help seniors assess their ability to drive, understand what might impair driving performance, and learn how to drive safer.  Locally, there are several driving improvement schools for those who are still able.  When the time comes to stop driving, many alternative transportation options are available from the local government, senior living communities, and in-home care providers.  Please feel free to contact us for more information on local transportation resources or to attend one of our monthly Truth About Estate Planning workshops to learn more about maintaining control as you age.
