Amanda M. Dorio is licensed to practice law in Florida and Wisconsin. Her practice revolves around Elder Law, including Guardianships, Probate Administration and Estate Planning. Amanda's passion for working with the Elderly population stems from her family's experiences with her Grandmother's Alzheimer's disease.

In addition, Amanda focuses on Wealth Preservation and Estate Planning, and is experienced in the administration of a myriad of probate scenarios – from a simple Summary Administration, to Ancillary Administrations, to complex Formal Administrations.
Amanda graduated, cum laude, from Cleveland State University in 1996. In 2001, she graduated from Marquette University Law School, where she was an editor of the law journal, Elder’s Advisor.
