Brandon D. Bellew’s Trust and Estate Litigation Blog

By Brandon D. Bellew | Categories: Blogs, Trusts & EstatesPrint PDF July 2018

Welcome to my Trust and Estate Litigation blog where I will discuss legal issues that frequently arise in my cases and provide updates and analyses of statutory and case law development in the areas of trust, estate and guardianship law.
I am a partner at Johnson, Pope, Bokor, Ruppel, & Burns, LLP, which is a full-service, regional firm with more than 70 lawyers in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater. I have focused my law practice exclusively in the areas of trust, estate and guardianship litigation and administration for my entire career. I frequently lecture to various groups and write articles on trust and estate litigation topics. I am currently serving as the President of the Clearwater Bar Association. I am very active in the Florida Bar’s Real Property, Probate, and Trust Law Section where I serve on its Executive Council. I am active on its Trust Law, Probate Law and Procedure and Probate & Trust litigation committees and currently serve as a Vice Chair of the Guardianship, Power of Attorney and Advanced Directives Committee. I was recently appointed by Michelle R. Suskauer, President of The Florida Bar, to serve on the Florida Probate Rules committee beginning July 1. I have been recognized as a Rising Star in the practice area of Estate and Trust Litigation by Super Lawyers (2015-2018) and listed in The Best Lawyers in America for Litigation- Trusts and Estates (2018).
