Knowledgeable assistance for a range of complex elder and estate law issues

I help people in Sarasota and Manatee counties with several types of legal issues, including:

  • Elder law — For any type of elder law concern, I provide reliable advice on legal safeguards.
  • Estate planning — I provide comprehensive estate planning advice, including assistance with wills, trusts and advance medical directives.
  • Medicaid eligibility — Many Floridians would like to be able to rely on Medicaid but don’t understand the complex eligibility requirements. I explain how you can qualify while protecting important assets.
  • Special needs trusts — I create effective special needs trusts for clients who seek to provide financial support for disabled family members.
  • Long-term planning — Medical costs associated with a serious injury or illness can drain the assets you’ve accumulated over a lifetime. To protect you and your loved ones, I offer long-term planning services to make appropriate arrangements.
  • Probate — If you require assistance with probate or trust administration, I handle each legal requirement in a professional, cost-effective manner.

Whether you have an immediate concern or are looking to set a strong foundation for the future, I am determined to make a positive difference for you and the people you care about.

    I can't say enough good things about Teresa and her office. Mom had a tragic fall in Ohio and we had to air ambulance her to Florida. All of the Ohio documents had to be redone. From the initial meeting, she and her office were very thorough, orga...
