Regina Drennan, Esq.
Attorney Regina Drennan has been involved in probate and guardianship in a number of roles. She has been a caregiver, advocate, and attorney. Through these experiences, she has firsthand knowledge of the challenges faced by the family of an incapacitated or disabled person and uses that knowledge to assist her client-families in a compassionate and understanding matter.
Ms. Drennan attended St. John’s University in Jamaica, NY where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting. After caring full time for her two sons, she decided to return to law school in order to allow her to provide services to those who are dealing with children with special needs, families with those who need assistance with a loved one who is incapacitated and caregivers who are working with incapacitated individuals.
After graduating from St. Thomas University Law School in Miami Gardens, FL, Ms. Drennan opened her own law firm in Fort Lauderdale, FL with a primary focus in Elder Law, Guardianship, Probate Administration and Estate Planning.
Ms. Drennan has volunteered as an Educational Surrogate in the Broward Public Schools. In this capacity she represented the rights of foster children in the IEP (Individual Educational Plan) process in order to help determine the best educational plan for these children who have learning challenges. She also has experience with children who have been diagnosed with Asperger’s, Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental disabilities. Ms. Drennan has experience with the McKay Scholarship for children with disabilities and has assembled a wonderful group of associates and professionals to assist in the planning and care of those with disabilities.
Ms. Drennan was appointed by Broward County Probate Judge Speiser as a Guardian ad Litem on a wrongful death case Jason Turchin’s office was handling. She eventually merged her practice into his, and their team continues to advocate for their clients.
