Paul Knudsen

Estate Planning and Probate Lawyer


My Story

Paul Knudsen is a native Floridian, who grew up in New Port Richey and Orlando, before obtaining his bachelor’s degree at Florida State University and his law degree from Florida Coastal School of Law. He has been an attorney for over 10 years, starting out as a prosecutor, and then a family law attorney, and now a trust and estate attorney.  

While practicing divorce and family law, Paul would often help his clients re-work their estate plans upon their divorce. Eventually Paul realized  estate planning was a passion of his and now only takes on trust, estate planning, and probate clientele. 

Paul finds himself interested in coming up with creative solutions to complex problems and appreciating the interpersonal nature of trust and estate work. 

In his personal time, Paul is married and is the father of three young children.  He is both a Cub Scout Den Leader and a Little League Baseball Coach; these activities take up most of Paul’s personal time, but he loves to get out on the golf course when he can. 

Paul has the knowledge and experience of working with both middle class and high net worth individuals and looks forward to the opportunity of helping you and your family and friends with all of your estate planning needs.
