Blake Hampton is an elder law, estate planning, and VA Accredited attorney. After graduating from Stetson Law, he began working at the prestigious Sheppard Law Firm in Fort Myers, having interned there since high school. Founded in 2015, Hampton Law focuses on comprehensive, long-term care and estate planning for the elderly in order to help families “plan today for peace of mind tomorrow”.
WHY ELDER LAW AND ESTATE PLANNING?
Hampton was inspired at age 15 to become an elder law attorney because his brother, Grant has autism. Discovering a way to combine his passion to serve the elderly and help those with disabilities and special needs is what drew Blake to pursuing elder law, estate planning and estate administration as a profession.
