Special Needs Lawyers PA was started in 2011 by Travis Finchum. Mr. Finchum started his legal career in 1991 as a legal assistant with one of the founders of the Florida Bar’s Elder Law Section. In 1997 he joined the firm of Karol, Hausman, Sosnik & Finchum, LLP, as the resident Florida partner of a New York Based boutique firm focusing on sophisticated estate planning, probate and elder law issues. That firm still exists today as Karol, Sosnik & Finchum, LLP but Mr. Finchum practices primarily with Special Needs Lawyers.
Today Special Needs Lawyers is the only Florida Law firm with three Board Certified Elder Law Attorneys. Certified attorneys Travis Finchum, Charles Robinson and Linda Chamberlain are teamed with attorney Kole Long in focusing their practice on legal problems related to aging and disability. We also have several legal assistants and paralegals with extensive experience in our areas of focus.
We strongly believe that our compassion, ability to listen and effectively communicate are the foundations for our success. We understand that, even in this age of information and technology, it is difficult to find accurate information. Our value to our clients is that we have the ability and the experience to pull together information and data from a myriad of sources and synthesize it into valuable usable legal advice to solve real-life problems.
We are here to help you and your family in Navigating Life’s Greatest Challenges. In addition to knowing the fine nuances of the laws, we are here to counsel and help you find solutions to some of the biggest problems we all face.
NOTHING IS MORE CHALLENGING THAN:
Having a Child with Special Needs.
