Practice areas

I am a Bilingual attorney (Spanish and English), Florida Bar Board Certified Specialist in Elder Law with vast experience in elder law, estate planning, special needs planning, guardianship, and probate. I also graduated from law school and practiced law in Asuncion, Paraguay, South America for 5 years.

I help families protect assets against long term care costs when a senior family member may be in need of long term care. I also help veterans obtain pension benefits. People with disabilities and with special needs are also amongst the clients that I serve, particularly when they need to preserve and maintain important public benefits.

In the estate planning arena, I work with families in creating and implementing estate plans that work by preparing and funding customized wills, trusts, durable powers of attorneys, health care surrogate, and living wills.

I also counsel clients when a family member has been diagnosed with Dementia or Alzheimer's. If guardianship is necessary, I represent the family member who will be appointed guardian.

When a loved one passed away, I help families administer the estate by conducting probate administration in the most efficient way possible.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Sosa patiently guided me through the process providing me with options and possible outcomes. I felt he was honest and showed compassion regarding my situation and case. He is a true professional. I found him to be very knowledgeable in regards to the law without ever coming off as patronizing. I thank him for his time and diligence regarding my case.

Thankful Clients
We came to Mr. Sosa after careful and deliberate review of the Florida Bar Association for Eldercare - for legal advice we needed for my father-in-law. His guidance, and, specific instructions as an Eldercare practitioner was invaluable and allowed us to properly coordinate the issues we faced in placing my father-in-law in a long-term care facility, while adhering to the government's requirements under Medicaid. It is evident that Horatio's approach to the law is client-driven. He consistently addressed our particular concerns, and, moreover has always been available to answer our questions and provide us with appropriate recommendations, assurance, and comfort. His personal touch is meaningful - he took the time to visit with my father-in-law to contemplate the best way to help. His knowledge about a wide variety of eldercare issues is apparent - ranging from medical, housing, policy, support, and retirement income. We are grateful for his advocacy, counsel, and guidance. We are most thankful we are his clients, and, equally that he is our attorney. Todd S. Miami, FL

Brilliant Attorney!!
Thank you very much Atty. Sosa for you creative intellect, understanding and insightfulness whereas others failed. You addressed all of my concerns willingness to help with a positive attitude & eventual outcome. Not once mentioning of fees which were reasonable in comparison to other attorneys. . It is difficult choosing the right attorney with so many while overwhelmed. However, from us speaking initially, you were thorough with specifics and a plan of action. It was your mannerism overall care and concern is why I chose you and would highly recommend others to do the same. So, Thank you attorney Sosa & I thank you for caring.

Thank you Mr Sosa
I honestly don't know where to begin with the wonderful experience I had with Mr. Sosa. He went so far above and beyond what I could have ever expected and I'm so unbelievably grateful. My case was handled so professionally, with Mr Sosa guiding me every step of the way. He not only provided me with confidence that everything would be handled to the absolute best of his ability, but then he absolutely exceeded my expectations. Wonderful attorney.

Professional, knowledgeable, and results oriented
We had many questions about how to deal with the situation with our aunt of 84 -year-old widow with Alzheimer's disease and all aspects of elder law and Lawyer Horacio Sosa answered all these questions thoroughly. Clearly, he has extensive experience in Elder Law, and he knows the details and nuances of applicable laws and how to translate these laws in calculations of risk / benefit of the real world. We found our consultation with lawyer Horacio Sosa very successful so we decided to hire him. Finally, after a few months and many processes, our aunt was approved by Medicaid.

Very knowledgable, trustworthy, and friendly
I hired Mr. Sosa to write my living will. I thought it would be a daunting, long, complicated process but Mr. Sosa made it easy and uncomplicated. I achieved everything I wanted and much more. I have decided to use his services for much more of my legal needs. I would definitely refer his services.

Expertise and patience that pay off!
I am elated. Mr. Sosa had already been highly and warmly recommended by another lawyer friend, but the face-to-face experience in our first meeting with him were, frankly, more than we ever expected. The professionalism and expertise of Mr. Sosa paid off for my mom's somewhat complicated situation only a week after I went in with her for his advice. First off, as I had been accustomed to most other lawyers, I expected him to start looking at his watch half way through the meeting. He never did that. Not only that, but we didn't leave his office until TWO HOURS later, after he was sure that he understood exactly the specifics of our situation, and was able to advise us accordingly. Of course we retained his services on the spot, and we are happy we did it! I would gladly reccommend Mr. Sosa to anyone worried about getting the proper benefits for an elderly member of their family.

Mr. Sosa Is a stellar attorney. It was pleasure to be in the presence of someone of his caliber.
Mr. Sosa saw us the same afternoon and was kind enough to wait for us even though he knew we would be late. His office was welcoming and his assistant was courteous and attentive. Mr. Sosa was friendly and very approachable, giving us the comfort and trust we needed to open up to him. He answered every question with certainty and kindness. His reassurance and guidance gave us the strength we needed to move forward and make decisions we were not ready for or options knew we had. He showed us compassion and empathy, which we were surprised to see from an attorney. No disrespect to Attorney's, of course. He took us through the different scenarios very clearly and carefully, allowing us for time to understand, question and react to the matters at hand. This case is very taxing on us emotionally and very despairing. He understood that and helped us stay focused and grounded throughout our visit. He gave us so much more of his time than we had anticipated. He never rushed us and made sure were felt complete with all our questions and his answers before completing the meeting. Upon completion, we noticed he had given us over 2 hours. We felt completely safe. He restored our ability to trust and gain more confidence. We now feel the peace and hope had been lacking and restored our vigor and our capability to act responsibly within the law, while at the same time desire to play with the sharks and still be in our integrity. If you have the opportunity to visit with Horacio Sosa, do not hesitate. The knowledge and wealth of information and opportunity he shares has given us our lives back and have the faith that we will overcome this unfortunate event he have been made to participate in. We highly recommend Mr. Sosa and believe if he stands by our side, we will be in good company and in good faith. I believe he cares for his clients, as it was very evident in our meeting. It was our pleasure to have met with Mr. Soso. and we encourage others to do so too. I know he will fight the fight and as calm and controlled his disposition is, there is no doubt that when he goes to bat for you, he will change the outcome of the game, There in lies his passion and his strength. Thank you again, Mr. Sosa for helping us walk out of there with confidence and peace. We are ever so grateful for your time and graciousness in handling our meeting.
