I had the best lawyer experience with Lisa DiFranza. She did an amazing job with my first case, so I hire her for another case. She was so caring and helpful of my entire process. I would refer her to everyone. Also, everybody on her team was very polite and professional throughout the whole process.

– Mary

Highly recommend Lisa and her staff. They took care of all of our estate planning documents. Answered all of our questions and the process went extremely well. I sleep a little better at night knowing the documents are complete. Thank you!

– Michelle Y.

Lisa is amazing! She’s super professional, compassionate, honest and extremely knowledgeable. She has a way of making you feel so cared for, as if your family is her only client. She is truly the absolute best at what she does!

– Alanna

I worked with Lisa at the State Attorney’s Office and she was given a difficult position and did more than excel at it. She was brilliant at her job and had no problem fighting for what she knew was right, even with senior attorneys. She is extremely knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a competent attorney and one who isn’t afraid to fight for you!

Our Services

DiFranza Law focuses on 6 core areas of expertise, Guardianship, Guardianship Advocacy, Adoption, Estate Planning, Elder Law, and Probate. We provide exceptional services for families living in Jacksonville, St. Johns, Ponte Vedra Beach, Orange Park, and throughout the state.

Guardianship

Every person has needs that are unique to them and they also have differing abilities. Guardianship is a way to assist someone who lacks the capacity to manage their physical health and safety, protect or assert their rights, and/or manage their financial resources. DiFranza Law can help you establish a Guardianship. Learn more about Guardianship in this article:

Guardianship Advocacy

When a child with special needs turns 18, the parents will no longer have the legal right to obtain health information or make decisions on their behalf. The purpose of a guardian advocate is to assist a person that has the capacity to make some, but not all, of the decisions regarding their person or property. We can help. Learn more about Guardianship Advocacy in this article:

Adoption

If you are looking to grow your family, our law firm can help with adoption of a minor or an adult. When adopting a minor child, it is a permanent relationship and the biological parental rights will be severed from the child. This differs from guardianship which can co-exist with the legal relationship between the child and the biological parents. Learn more about guardianship and adoption in this article:

Estate Planning

From simple distributions to complex approaches with trusts and tax considerations, DiFranza Law will keep your peace of mind top priority. What works for one person doesn’t work for everyone, therefore estate planning is not something you should try to do without the assistance of an elder law attorney.

Following the death of a loved one, there are many things that will require your attention. If your loved one doesn’t have a valid will or if a probate asset is missing, things can get very confusing and the process, called Probate, could take a lot longer.

Elder Law

As we age, we will face very important decisions about where to live, about our care, and what will happen to us when we near the end of life on earth. As an elder law attorney, Lisa DiFranza helps guide older and disabled adults through these issues and legal considerations. Learn more about how an elder law attorney can help you in this article:
