YOUR LEGACY BEGINS HERE!

Drew Daddono is trust and probate administration lawyer whose primary focus is helping individuals and families navigate the often complex proceedings following the death of a loved one. In addition, Drew provides estate planning services to clients in a variety of situations. Along with professional fiduciary services to support ongoing planning efforts, Drew assists individuals and families in meeting their estate planning and wealth management goals, and he helps small business owners setup and implement succession planning strategies to ensure their business continues to grow and thrive no matter what the future holds.

Originally from Chicago, Drew graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. In 2014, he earned his Juris Doctor at Florida State University College of Law in Tallahassee, Florida. While at law school, Drew maintained an active membership of the Student Bar Association and the Leon County Teen Court as a volunteer adviser and coach.

Drew began his legal career in 2014 representing members of the banking industry as an associate at a large Tampa-based law firm. After that, Drew represented insurance carriers and employers in workers’ compensation litigation.

In May of 2017, Drew launched his own law firm; Anchor Trust Management. Drew has focused his practice at Anchor Trust Management almost exclusively in trust and probate administration and litigation, and estate planning. It is his passion, and he gets distinct fulfillment when answering his clients’, “What ifs…?”

Drew takes great satisfaction in helping clients navigate the often confusing and rough waters of trust and probate administrations. Whether his client is the trustee, personal representative/executor, or beneficiary, Drew takes great satisfaction in personally providing expert legal and fiduciary services.

In 2019, the Daddono family welcomed their newest addition; Aria, their first. When he is not working, Drew enjoys spending time in the Tampa Bay area with his wife Candace, their new daughter, and their dog Lily.

Drew is Fantastic!
Drew is the best. He and his team are very courteous and professional and helped me handle inheritance after my mother passed without a will or much of a plan. I was overwhelmed by the inheritance and probate process and ready to just walk away when I contacted him and he encouraged me not to. He was able to quickly and affordably handle the transfer of her property so I could sell it to help cover funeral costs. I cannot thank him enough for his help. He truly is a cut above.
