Sarasota Elder Law Attorney Gives Clients Peace of Mind

Personalized assistance for legal issues related to age and disability

Elder law, estate planning, and disability planning are legal concerns that truly touch the heart. These areas of law require a candid discussion of deeply personal concerns and come at a time of life where family members are most vulnerable. At my law practice, Teresa K. Bowman, P.A. in Sarasota, I provide a welcoming environment for relaxed discussion that builds trust and confidence. I have a simple mission: to help you and your family develop and implement a plan that meets your needs. I listen carefully and offer advice based on more than 10 years of experience. I don’t push one-size-fits-all solutions; I work with you as a creative problem-solver so the plan we craft fits your circumstances and addresses your concerns.
