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. Originally 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, counseling and representation 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, and 2 of only 8 Florida Bar Board Certified Elder Law Attorneys in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable associates are Katherine Fall and Slade V. Dukes.

In 2016, Boyer & Boyer P.A. opened a satellite office in downtown St. Petersburg, FL. Our firm has always had close ties to the St. Petersburg and Pinellas County Community. Ed Boyer grew up in St. Petersburg and attended St. Petersburg Junior College as a young man. For the past several years he has also been an adjunct professor at Stetson University, College of Law, the School where most of our attorneys attended law school.

2020 is will be a milestone year for our firm as we celebrate 25 years in practice.  As luck would have it, also celebrate the return of Mary Alice Jackson, Esq. to Sarasota and to the Firm in an Of Counsel relationship.

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 Estate Planning,Probate and Trust Administration, Incapacity, Guardianship, Long Term Care Planning, Special Needs Trusts, and Veterans’ Benefits.

As part of our core values, Boyer & Boyer P.A. plays an active role in supporting local community organizations and non-profits such as: ALS Association, All Faith Food Bank, Lutheran Services Florida, Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary, Oak Park School, and Legal Aid of Manasota

We cannot predict
the future, but we can help you plan for it.
