Firm Description

The Baby Boomers’ Barrister is the leading estate and long term care planning law firm in Tampa Bay catering exclusively to Baby Boomers and their parents.   Baby Boomers are members of the generation born between 1946 and 1964. We came of age in the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s. We are competent and resourceful. We are often identified as the “sandwich generation” because we are now called on to take care of both our children and our parents. The Baby Boomers’ Barrister offers outstanding legal assistance to Baby Boomers who are developing or updating their estate plans, and who are concerned about the increasing incapacity of their parents (or themselves) and need help with long term care planning and financing.  We help Baby Boomers with the things they need: Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Medicaid planning, Probate, Guardianship and Special Needs planning.
