Our Mission

Our mission is to provide clients with solutions to the personal and financial challenges of aging and disability. We offer our clients a safe place to tell their stories, then provide experienced legal counseling as well as access to community resources which can assist with other needs. The firm is committed to serving our community through pro bono services to the poor, public education and advocacy. We lead the way by seeking change in public policies that benefit older persons and those with disabilities.

Our History

Boyer & Boyer P.A. is an Elder Law firm dedicated to the needs of people who are aging, individuals with disabilities, and their families. Founded in 1995, the firm now includes four attorneys and a staff of highly experienced support personnel, all of whom are committed to the needs of our clients. Every client is unique, regardless of the similarities of experiences shared with others who are coping with the compromises of aging or disability.

Boyer & Boyer P.A., originally Boyer and Ferrell, has been assisting the Sarasota, Florida community for twenty years in the areas of estate planning and elder law issues. On May 25, 1995, Ed Boyer and Mary Alice Ferrell, now Jackson (two of the first three Board Certified Elder Law Attorneys in Florida), set a course to provide their clients with solutions to the personal and financial challenges of aging and disability. Together, they built an elder law firm with a strong local and national reputation.

As our firm has evolved, we have consistently provided caring and compassionate assistance for individuals and families dealing with significant legal and financial challenges. The partners of Boyer & Boyer P.A. are now Ed Boyer and Andrew Boyer, father and son. Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable associates are Nicholas Chipurnoi and Neil Lyons.

Together, with our dedicated, efficient, and knowledgeable staff, our commitment to providing exceptional legal counsel remains the same as when Ed and Mary Alice began their partnership over 20 years ago. Our areas of practice continue to include Probate and Trust Administration, Incapacity, Guardianship, Long Term Care Planning, Special Needs Trusts, Estate Planning and Veterans' Benefits.
