We need more people/lawyers like this in the world
The best Estate and Medicaid Planning lawyer there is. I met with many others that were going to create more work and costs than necessary for this process. Tony is trustworthy, organised, diligent and extremely knowledgeable in Medicaid eligibility criteria to secure approval, should you qualify. Watching your parent(s) age is never easy and the benefits/services can be hard to navigate. Tony has made this process much easier. I can't recommend enough.

Estate Planning
Atty Mowry was extremely knowledgeable and professional in his dealings with me. He proposed sound strategies about the trusts that he arranged for me. He took time to explain a number of complex issues. I am very happy that I hired Atty Mowry.

Best in the Business
My father chose me several years ago to be his power of attorney. Unfortunately, back in September of 2018 my Dad suffered three Strokes and needed my help . To my disbelief... three of my sisters just could not accept the situation and filed in the county of Sarasota to have a guardian appointed which would mean that if the guardian was appointed it would dissolve my power of attorney... I was being accused of stealing my father's money, doing a poor job taking care of my father and any other thing a sister can say about their brother due to jealousy. Their only goal was to destroy my credibility and the wonderful relationship I had with my father my entire life. After several discussions with Mr. Mowry...he put together a spectacular strategy that caused the other side to cave and withdraw the case... simply said ...the real truth prevailed and Mr Mowry deserves all the credit.... I want to thank you personally guiding me along step-by-step assuring that I followed the law... the truth and most importantly what was best for my father. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr Mowry to handle all of your" Probate, Wills and living wills and trusts. The price was reasonable.. his time was handled efficiently and bottom line I came out Victorious for my father. Again, I want to thank you so much.... Mr. Mowry is a winner!

An attorney with integrity.
I requested the assistance of Mr. Mowry regarding a family matter. I have nothing but positive things to say about Anthony. He is hard working, dedicated, honest and a reliable attorney. He responded to my issues in a timely and professional manner. His explanations were well analyzed and easy to understand. I felt that he was looking out for the best interest of the family. Thanks Tony.

Lawyer Review
It was a great pleasure to find this first class lawyer. We would engage Anthony again when ever possible.

Tony Mowry, an excellent lawyer
Tony is a very professional, knowledgable, and personable lawyer. I was made comfortable in an unknown area to me : that of Wills, Power of Attorney, and the Advance Health Care Directive. I feel assured that I now have in place a good plan. Questions that the rest of the family had were answered by way of a conference call. And the satisfaction that everyone understands what I want, and now have, is so comforting to me. I highly recommend Tony Mowry.
