In September 1976, James O. (Jay) Fergeson, Jr., realized his desire to return to Sarasota and establish a "boutique" law firm specializing exclusively in the areas of federal and state taxation, wills, trusts and estates.

Mr. Fergeson opened his practice in what was then known as the United First Federal Savings and Loan Association Building located on Main Street at Pineapple Avenue. J. Ronald Skipper, a specialist in wills, trusts, and estates, joined Jay in 1978.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
