My practice generally revolves around Elder Law and the associated aspects thereof: Estate Planning, Guardianship, Medicaid and Probate and Trust Administration. A native Sarasotan, I have been involved in both community and law related activities during my career. Our firm, the oldest in Sarasota (1912), attempts to provide the most personal and professional service to our clients at the most reasonable cost. We also strive to make sure that our clients are
satisfied and we are proud to say that most of our new c.ients come from referral from existing and former clients. I am availble to meet with clients at their homes, if necessary, and also will go to the hospital or other facility where the client might need to meet.
I am available for free initial consultation (office or telephone) and look forward to meeting any new client.
