Michael A. Dribin was elected Probate and Trust Law Division Director of the Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section of The Florida Bar

Michael A. Dribin was elected last week as Probate and Trust Law Division Director of the Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section of The Florida Bar, upon completion of his one-year term as Treasurer of the Section. Dribin is a partner in the Miami law firm of Harper Meyer Perez Hagen O'Connor Albert & Dribin LLP, where he leads the trusts and estates practice.

"This is a very complex and multi-faceted area of the law touching on almost every aspect of the management, preservation, and ownership or succession of assets from real property to private investments and business holdings," Dribin said. "The work of our Section is crucial to keeping Florida-licensed practitioners up-to-date on the newest developments in case law and regulatory frameworks for the various vehicles used by high-net-worth families and businesses for wealth preservation and succession and to recommend legislation in the probate, guardianship and trust areas."

A Florida Bar Board-Certified Wills, Trusts and Estates lawyer, Dribin focuses his practice on estate planning, probate, trust and guardianship administration and litigation in these areas. He has been honored as a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estates Counsel, designated a "Florida Super Lawyer" by Law & Politics magazine for five consecutive years, recognized since 1993 by the authoritative legal guide, "The Best Lawyers in America," and was selected by his peers for Florida Trend magazine's 2009 "Florida Legal Elite."

Dribin is also a member of the Tax Section and Elder Law Section of the Florida Bar, an Estate Planning Advisor in the University of Miami Masters in Estate Planning program, an active member of the Probate and Guardianship Court Committee of the Dade County Bar Association and Past President of the Estate Planning Council of Miami. He holds a B.A. from Northwestern University, a J.D. from Loyola University of Chicago and an LL.M. degree in Taxation from the University of Miami.
