Mr. La Neve previously served as a member of the Board of Directors of Florida Lawyers Legal Insurance Corporation, a prepaid legal insurance company. One of Mr. La Neve's most cherished experiences was ministry to the elderly and shut-ins, volunteer work as a guardian ad-litem, and various ministries to the homeless, including writing grants for nonprofit agencies conducting research, and providing shelter and aid to the homeless.
Mr. La Neve believes that these interests and experience provided the conduit for a natural progression toward the practice of elder law and now enjoys his added legal representation of the elderly, the disabled, and their caregivers.
