About Frank

Learn Frank’s areas of practice.


The Baby Boomer’s Barrister is the leading estate planning and long term care planning law firm in Tampa Bay catering exclusively to Baby Boomers and their parents.


Baby Boomers are members of the generation born between 1946 and 1964.  We came of age in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.  We are competent and resourceful. We are often called the “sandwich generation” because we are now called on to take care of both our children and our parents. 


The Baby Boomers’ Barrister offers outstanding legal assistance to Baby Boomers who are updating their estate plans, finally getting around to developing estate plans, and who are dealing with the increasing incapacity of their parents (or themselves) and need help with long term care planning and financing.  


Frank “Skip” Tylman is an experienced corporate executive, turned attorney, who understands the needs of Baby Boomers, who has personally experienced the incapacity and loss of parents, and who enjoys helping others through the planning process. 


Skip Tylman focuses his practice in the areas of estate planning, probate and trust administration, incapacity planning, Medicaid planning and crisis management, asset protection, and guardianship. He is accredited by the Veterans Administration to represent veterans in the preparation, presentation and prosecution of claims for veteran’s benefits. 


Mr. Tylman has an extensive business background. Prior to practicing law, he was President and Owner of Achievia Tutoring of Florida, Inc., a private company dedicated to providing affordable and convenient academic tutoring for students in grades K through 12.  


Mr. Tylman was formerly Managing Director of Procter & Gamble Australia, Pty. Ltd. with overall responsibility for Procter & Gamble’s business in Australia and New Zealand.  At P&G, he held a number of positions of increasing responsibility in manufacturing, marketing and general management, both domestically and internationally, prior to retiring from the company and moving to Tampa Bay. 


Mr. Tylman is a member of the Florida Bar Association (Elder Law Section) and the St. Petersburg Bar Association (Probate & Guardianship Section). He is also a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) and the Academy of Florida Elder Law Attorneys (AFELA).

I called many attorneys in the area to help me with my Mom's financial and end of life care. Then I called Mr. Tylman and knew I found the attorney for me. He was very knowledgeable, caring and knew just what needed to be done. then came the best surprise, his fee was far below what other attorneys were going to charge. I highly recommend you give him a call.

Frank was wonderful to work with! Very professional and was able to answer all our questions. Highly recommend!
Frank was very helpful. He came completely prepared to our meeting and explained all the aspects of our living will thoroughly. This was the first time my husband and I have ever done a living will or power of attorney, so we had a lot of questions. He was very clear when he was going through the documents and we felt very comfortable with him. I would recommend him for any service to my friends and family.

Frank was very understanding of the Estate and will planning laws. Both my wife and I were very new to this area and were not very well informed prior to our engagements with Frank. Frank was good at explaning line by line the rules, laws and what-ifs around our will. I would recommend Frank for his services to anyone.
