    Long-term care is a costly and confusing matter for families. We can help plan for this, whether the prospect of long-term care is years away or a loved one is already in a nursing facility.

Amy Phillips and Staff
Very happy with Amy and her staff professional knowledgeable and friendly. Amy is the best if you need estate planning like I did. There were a couple of things I had not even thought about but she took care of everything for me. Makes it easier for me and my children. It took 5 weeks from start to finish but well worth it. You won't be sorry give her a call.

Painless Probate Process
Amy Phillips and her team were very proficient and professional in handling the probate process for my fathers estate, all during the Covid-19 pandemic in the summer of 2020. I would highly recommend them, and will look to them for any future services.

Ms. Phillips was very knowledgeable and professional. She handled my will. She sent copies for me to read over to ensure that everything was exactly like I wanted it. I found her to be very easy to work with.

Thorough, knowledgable, kind and compassionate
We hired Amy to handle my mom's affairs. Choosing an attorney to assist you in planning for your later years is an important decision. You want someone who knows what questions to ask and someone who will cover all the bases in creating a solid estate plan. Amy Phillips is exactly that kind of attorney. Kind, compassionate and thourough are great words to describe her. When my mom was diagnosed with cancer, she had no plan in place. It was a scary time for her, but Amy guided her through the process with patience and kindness every step of the way. Thank you Amy!

Uses everyday language
It was nice to be able to gain information in everyday language which I could understand. She is current on the laws and regulations, and explains options simply with easy to follow guidelines. I gained much information from the Consultation and when I need further help, I will be using Amy Phillips again.

Personalized Service
We hired Amy to put our finances into a trust and help us with documenting our wills, living wills and beneficiaries. She explained all of our options and the impact they would make and also worked with our financial advisors to get the best results for us. Amy and her staff are very helpful, patient, courteous, friendly and we loved working with them. I would highly recommend them.

Amy Phillips - Highly Recommended!
Amy made an overwhelming experience so easy, I can’t recommend her enough. Not only did she address issues of concern, she hit on details we hadn’t considered. This was the easiest, most thorough encounter we’ve ever had. Thanks to Amy and her amazing staff.

An A+ and 5 stars for Amy Phillips Tucker
Amy Phillips Tucker is competent and extremely knowledgeable in estate planning, Florida probate and elder law. Amy's readiness to assist with an estate plan for our parents in a timely manner was intricate in resolving any questions and concerns my parents and my sibling had regarding their lives and Medicare/Medicaid issues. I highly recommend Amy for your estate plan. She was able to affirm our position that EVERYONE needs an estate plan no matter your financial situation or family status.

Needed a will and advise.
We needed to do a will. She performed that task perfectly. My father had died and we needed some advice. She recommended a financial advisor who has also been helpful. We have known Amy for many years and recommend her.
