Brian Lebensburger

Brian Lebensburger is a partner at Muller Lebensburger & Schwartz. Brian’s practice focuses extensively on estate planning and the administration of probates and trusts, and in addition to his law degree Brian has an advanced Masters of Law (LL.M.) degree from the University of Miami in estate planning.

In today’s litigious world, disputes unfortunately erupt between the best of families over inheritances, estate plans, probates and trust matters. When these disputes arise, Brian attempts to work with his clients to try to resolve these issues effectively and efficiently outside of the courtroom. However, if the only possible way to resolve an inheritance, estate, probate or trust dispute is through litigation, then Brian uses his skills as a litigator to advocate and fight for his client’s rights in court.

Brian believes that clear, direct and express communication, both early and often, is a great way for families to stay strong and to hopefully avoid needing his litigation services.

Brian and his wife live in North Miami Beach, Florida with their high-school age daughter, and have three older children living in New York City. Brian cannot believe that his four children keep getting older, while he and his wife stay the same age.
