Biography

Raised in his hometown of Port St. Lucie, attorney Jamy Barreau has experience handling all aspects of issues surrounding preserving generational wealth including matters associated with trusts and estates as well as business planning.

A first-generation Haitian American, he has dedicated his life to the practice of law. He graduated with high honors from St. Lucie West Centennial High School in 2009 where he had the privilege of being part of the school’s Criminal Justice Academy, serving as an advocate for the 19th Judicial Circuit’s Teen Court program.
After graduation from Centennial, Jamy earned his B.S. in Legal Studies from the University of Central Florida, earning his degree on a full-time basis while working full time at Universal Studios Orlando. After college, Jamy attended Barry University School of Law where he served on the editorial board of its Law Review Journal as a Research and Technical Editor. In 2017, he graduated from Barry Law and returned to the Treasure Coast, gaining experience in estate planning, trust administration, probate administration, business planning, residential mortgage foreclosures, and evictions. Understanding the impact generational wealth has on society and setting the stage for success in generations to come, Jamy made it his mission to guide those in his community in such matters. In 2021, he graduated with his LL.M. in taxation with a concentration in estate planning from Boston University School of Law to further his mission.

In his free time, he is an adjunct professor of business law at Purdue Global Law School and continues to expand his knowledge of how to best serve his community.

Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered
Q. My husband of 30yrs died and the bank says I have no right to the money in his bank accounts. We live in Jacksonville.
A: Please accept my condolences for your loss. Because the bank account was in your husband's name alone, you will have to go through the probate process to gain access. As his wife, you have a right to inherit from him, but you will just have to go through the courts to have that taken care of first. I would suggest getting in touch with a probate attorney to help you navigate - especially in light of the fact that getting access might help you handle his final arrangements.
Q. I am researching the options for a Living Trust to protect my brother's $ when he/we inherits money from our parents.
A: I think more information is needed to give a proper response here. How assets are titled is very important in trust planning. If assets are not appropriately titled in the name of the trust, it could lead the trust to not having authority over the particular asset. I would suggest meeting with an attorney to ensure that all of the relevant facts are clearly laid out.
