Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Lori Vella has been an attorney for over 20 years. She practices Estate Planning (Wills, Trusts, Advanced Directives), Probate, and Guardianships.
She also does business succession planning (to make sure your business passes on correctly).

She is the creator of the #GetMyGuardian Guide, a unique set of both legal and practical documents, that she created/compiled. She also authored The Live-On Project, a short book about writing letters to your children so that your spirit continues to live on in their lives, no matter what.

She is originally from Rochester, NY. She graduated from Albany Law School in 2000 (25th in her class out of a class of over 300 after the first year). She became a judicial law clerk for the Fifth District Court of Appeal from 2000-2002, with Judge Griffin.

She joined a top law firm in 2003. She was a partner and attended hundreds of depositions, hearings and mediations. After the birth of her son, Gianni, in 2014, she withdrew from her practice to raise him at home. She has continued to stay home with Gianni, and while doing so, she started her own law firm in 2017. Her background in litigation serves her well to anticipate and attempt to avoid litigation over Wills and Trusts.

Lori welcomes any Seinfeld trivia questions, any time--try to stump her!
Message her to learn more about Wills, Trusts and protecting your kids. Available via video calls to all of Florida.

  • Free Consultation

We will briefly talk over the issues and go over the steps of estate planning, probate, or your particular issue. During this meeting we will not quote fees (unless we have a clear idea of projected fees) nor provide legal advice as we need to learn more about the facts of your matter. If you require more than 10 minutes and seek legal advice, please schedule the Legal Strategy Session. We look forward to potentially working with you! Thank you!
