Heather Boyer Samuels is an Elder Law attorney with Solkoff Legal, P.A. representing the elderly, the disabled, and their caregivers in all facets of Elder Law including Estate Planning, Asset Protection Planning, Public Benefits, Estate Planning, Incapacity Planning, Special Needs Planning, Guardianship, Probate, and Trust Administration.  As an attorney, Heather understands that her role is not only to be an advocate, but also to listen and counsel.  With a background in feminism and civil rights, Heather embraces the importance of tikkun olam—a Hebrew phrase that means “heal the world”—a practice that requires the performance of “mitzvot” or good deeds, the exercise of social understanding and equality for everyone, and adherence to ethical practices to improve society as a whole. 

Ms. Samuels graduated cum laude and within the top 20% of her class at Nova Southeastern University’s Shepard Broad Law Center, and was an advocate with the Moot Court Society.  While studying at the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College at Florida Atlantic University, she clerked at Solkoff Legal, P.A. and has therefore come full circle. Prior to law school, Ms. Samuels earned a Masters Degree in Women’s Studies and taught Women’s Studies classes at Florida Atlantic University, where she remains an adjunct professor. She is also a member of the Board of the South Palm Beach chapter of the Florida Association of Women Lawyers, and a member of the Elder Law Committee of the Palm Beach County Bar Association. 

Prior to joining the Solkoff Legal, P.A., Ms. Samuels worked as an associate attorney at an AV rated boutique litigation firm in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Although like many South Floridians Ms. Samuels is a New York native, she enjoys life in South Florida with her husband, Richard, a CPA, young daughter and son, and their two crazy Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Summer and Ruby.
