I am an Elder Law Attorney practicing in St. Petersburg, Florida, where I have lived most of my life.  My Elder Law Practice includes wills, trusts, estate planning, probate estates, advance directive documents, guardianship and Medicaid Planning (protecting assets) in long term care.  I enjoy working with clients of all ages to help them plan for the future, including retirment and issues realted to aging.  I offer a free 30 minute consultation and am able to meet with clients in their home or in a hospital or nurisng facility if needed.  My office is conveniently located just north of downtown St. Petersburg, on Dr. ML King Jr. Street North, with plenty of free parking in front of the building, making my office easily accessible.  My clients love that I give them personal attention, with a caring and compassionate approoach and provide them with straightforward information to help them plan for the future.

Highly Recommended
My wife and I consulted with Ms. Terrana for help with Advance Care Directives, Powers of Attorney and Long Term Health Care Financial Planning. These are difficult, emotionally fraught discussions and Ms. Terrana guided us with empathy and a gentle guiding hand to help us make the right decisions. I cannot recommend her highly enough and absolutely plan on using her for any future Elder Law needs we may have. If you are looking for a professional, truly human legal professional, you are in the right place.

Great Experience
Ms. Terrana is professional, knowedgeable, courteous and kind. She overcame two obstacles for me. One - my brother, the elder person I am caring for, and I live in two different states. Two - he was in need of a new living situation and was extemely difficult to work with. Initially, I spoke with Ms. Terrana by phone about preparing a POA and will for him. Once all was ready for his signatures, I flew to Florida and she met us at the nursing home with the documents. My brother signed all the paperwork and was very happy with her too! I highly recommend Ms. Terrana.

VERY thorough and knowledgeable
I didn't realize how important it is to have an attorney who SPECIALIZES in elder care prepare all necessary documents, i.e., wills, power of attorney, living wills, etc. I would highly refer Jennifer to all my friends.

Will and Trust
Jennifer did the paperwork for my will, power of attorney and trust. She was very thorough and explained everything in great detail. I was very impressed with the service she provided. I would highly recommend her.

Thorough and Professional
Jennifer worked with me to redo my will and create other estate and estate planning documents. She spent her time carefully going over matters I hadn't even considered or realized were of such consequence, but do. Everything was completed in a timely matter and at more than reasonable cost. Highest recommendation.
