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 five 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 almost twenty-five years in the areas of estate planning and elder law issues. On May 25, 1995, Ed Boyer and Mary Alice Ferrell, now Mary Alice 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 shareholders of Boyer & Boyer P.A. are now Ed Boyer and Andrew Boyer, father and son. Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable associates are Katherine Fall and Slade V. Dukes.

In November 2019, Mary Alice Jackson returned from practicing in Texas and rejoined the firm of counsel.  Together we look forward to celebrating a milestone 25 years of service to our clients and community.

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 almost 25 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
