Sarasota Magazine’s 2020 Women of Influence

August 31, 2020 Sarasota Magazine


We are fortunate to live in a philanthropic community, abundant with outstanding nonprofit organizations and generous patrons. Sarasota has a rich tradition of strong civic organizations and community engagement. For decades, women have helped shape that community. Since 1925, Williams Parker is proud to have counseled generations of these women, their families, and the institutions they’ve helped to create and operate. We are proud of the central roles played by Williams Parker in forging and leading some of the area’s most enduring and iconic institutions and in representing many of the individuals responsible for our area’s good fortune and character.

For generations – whether motivated to enhance Sarasota’s vibrant array of arts, healthcare, educational, environmental, and human services organizations or to support future generations of family – we’ve worked with the philanthropic leaders of our community to craft charitable giving plans that will have a lasting influence and legacy in our community.

At Williams Parker, we strive to uphold the legacy of women leaders that have come before us, and we are devoted to making an impact for generations to come. 


  • For nearly a century, Williams Parker has been committed to community service and excellence in the practice of law.
