About Jeanne M. Bennett, P.A.

I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, my Master of Arts from the University of Cincinnati, and my law degree from the University of Detroit. While in Detroit, I practiced primarily in the area of Employment Law. I was on staff with Wayne State University where I was involved in labor negotiations, arbitration, and contract administration. I was admitted to the Florida Bar in 1988 and began practicing in Sarasota in 1989. In 1990 I began to shift the focus of my practice to issues involving Estate Planning, Guardianship & Guardianship Avoidance, and Probate & Trust Administration.

I am experienced in all issues involving the avoidance, establishment, and maintenance of a guardianship for incapacitated persons, and seeking termination of guardianship if circumstances warrant. Guardianships often involve contested issues, which I am experienced in handling in a manner consistent with the best interests of the Ward.

I am also a certified Arbitrator and have served as a Hearing Officer for Sarasota County Government since 2001.

Prior to law school, I served as a business manager for a corporation headquartered in Oklahoma City.
