Family First Firm

Let’s get this out of the way – Geoff Hoatson is not a typical attorney and the Family First Firm is not your typical law firm.  Geoff is innovating the way legal services are provided in Central Florida, especially when it comes to protecting seniors and their loved ones.  He and his staff combine the latest technology with intense dedication and compassion for their clients.  As an example, staff members regularly make in-home or facility visits and bring laptops with touch screens upon which their clients sign important documents.  This is unique in the Elder Law community where the firm specializes in helping clients with wills and trusts, estate administration, veteran’s benefits, Medicaid qualification, and social security benefits.   

“Too often, attorneys treat their clients like an inconvenience” says Hoatson.  “We recognize that our clients are our lifeblood and they are never treated as an interruption of our work – they are the purpose of our work.”

 Unlike most law firms which bill by the hour, the Family First Firm has adopted a fixed fee structure for all case types.  Each client knows exactly how much his or her case will cost with no variables or hidden surprises.  There are no invoices for telephone calls, appointments, or e-mails; and everything is included from start to finish.  Most importantly – their clients are loving it!  In the last year, the Firm has won awards from the American Institute of Legal Counsel, The Expert Network, Lawyers of Distinction, and now Orlando Style for its outstanding reputation and satisfied clients.

When someone is doing good work, word gets around and as the firm’s clientele has grown, so has the firm itself.  In a short twelve-month period, the firm swelled from four to ten members and relocated into its very own building in Colonial Town, a division of downtown Orlando.  This growth has brought considerable expertise and an array of talents to the firm.  For instance, there are four staff members fluent in Spanish and one in French.  Above all, the firm is united by the vision of its founder – to make each visitor feel comfortable in the office, to provide the highest level of legal services, and to treat each client like their only client.
