Seth Ellis has three decades of experience in estate planning, asset protection, probate and guardianship administration and litigation, and fiduciary representation, particularly for high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals and families. To Seth, estate planning is more than just legal work — it’s a deeply personal journey that involves some of the most significant aspects of his clients’ lives. He is committed to helping clients address practical, financial, and emotional considerations alongside legal matters.

Seth specializes in working with family offices and high net worth clients, focusing on sophisticated tax planning and asset protection strategies. He particularly enjoys assisting entrepreneurs in transferring family wealth to younger generations through the use of various trust structures while always placing an emphasis on asset protection. Seth works closely with families and entrepreneurs to create trust structures that shield assets from third party creditors. For many clients, Seth will recommend and structure a domestic asset protection trust in states such as Nevada or South Dakota.

His true passion lies in supporting entrepreneurs. As a longstanding member of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization in South Florida, Seth joined the Global Board in 2018 as a member of the Strategic Alliance Committee.

Seth’s warmth and genuine care for his clients often lead to lasting friendships. He finds great joy in celebrating his clients’ successes and providing steady guidance during challenging times. Outside of work, he cherishes time with his wife and their three daughters.
