Do the Personal Representative and Attorney for the Personal Representative Receive Compensation?

Yes, the personal representative and the attorney for the personal representative are entitled to reasonable compensation by law. Florida law provides a schedule of what are “reasonable fees.” Typically this amount is based upon the value of the probate estate. As a general rule, 3% of the estate value is considered reasonable compensation. However, the personal representative may establish a different fee with the attorney.
