Who We Are
A small firm specializing in personal attention for our clients. Started in 1990, the firm has provided clients with the same resources as many larger firms, without the higher cost or lack of personalized service found with larger firms. The law Firm of Van Winkle & Sams PA was founded 1980 by Mary E Van Winkle. Today the firm is a culmination of the shared vision of Mary and Laurie Sams to create a client centered firm which could service all the legal needs of the average small family business, from small business creation, corporate matters, contract review and preparation, real estate matters, litigation to defend or enforce contract rights, as well as estate planning and probate and trust administration.
The firm is built on providing personalized legal advice and services, gaining the confidence and respect of clients, and restoring the clients’ belief and trust in their Attorney, all while charging an affordable fee. Most of our practice involves providing quality and affordable legal services in the Sarasota, Charlotte and Manatee area. However, we are also available to handle your legal needs as they arise throughout the state of Florida.
