Kevin Pillion, Esq.
Elder Law Attorney
Certified Public Accountant

The practice of “Happy Law” may sound like an oxymoron, but not for one unique Sarasota attorney.

Kevin Pillion is the founder of the Life Planning Law Firm in Sarasota, Florida. A tall and slender man with red hair and smiling Irish eyes, Kevin’s casual demeanor is engaging. He’s always ready with a funny quip and a good cup of hot Irish tea. That down-to-earth attitude is especially refreshing when people realize that it comes with decades of personal and legal experience working with seniors and their families.
