Sam Boone is an incredible lawyer. I have worked with him directly over the last 4 years since my Father passed away. I absolutely understand why my Dad trusted him with everything. Sam handled all his estate planning, wills, etc and now handles all of mine. He is an excellent lawyer and friend. He responds to me immediately via phone or email. I go to Sam with any legal question and seek his guidance and advice. I trust him completely. Again, Dad worked with him for over 25 years and likewise I hope to as well.

My husband and I are part of what has become known as the sandwich generation – dealing with planning and financial issues for both our daughter and my parents. We already had the experience of dealing with the aging and passing of my husband’s parents. We did that on our own, without the benefit of someone to guide us through the process and make us aware of the resources available to help us.
After their passing we met Sam Boone, an elder law and estate planning attorney in Gainesville, FL. Sam and his staff have guided us through the planning we needed to do to make sure our daughter, who has emotional and mental health issues, was protected if something happened to us. Now we are dealing with my aging parents and the challenges associated with that.
Throughout this process Sam and his staff have been professional and compassionate, providing knowledge and support that have made the challenge much more manageable. Their professionalism and expertise has helped make an extremely difficult situation and time period much more manageable.
