About me

My inspiration for becoming an attorney flowed from the care my family provided to my mother and father that allowed both of them to live full lives while remaining at home and receiving care in their home.


My sister, Kathy, quit her position with the IRS and took a significantly reduced pension to care for my parents. The difficulties experienced by my family are the same problems faced by millions of families today.


Our team of professionals includes my lifelong friend, college sweetheart and husband, Stephen Spano, as well as a dedicated team of professionals. Our firm helps families throughout the globe who are experiencing the same difficulties experienced by my family. We are truly passionate about helping you and your family through this difficult time in your life, help you plan for the future and help you provide a legacy and memories for the next generation. Let our family help you family.

  • Stephen J Spano

    I endorse this lawyer. Francine is the most amazing human being I have ever met. Her love and compassion for her work is matched by her humor, kindness and intelligence, combined with her razor edge wit and love. This endorsement is admittedly biased as she is not only my law partner, but my college sweetheart, lifelong love and wife.
