Jason A. Penrod


Fortunate to have grown up next door to his grandparents, Jason is from Pendleton, New York, a small rural town that is a half hour drive from Buffalo and Niagara Falls.

He earned his earned his bachelor’s degree in Political Science while attending the Honors Program at Niagara University and was the recipient of the Sertoma Award for academic excellence. Minoring in Spanish, Jason was blessed with the life changing opportunity to live with a Spanish family in Seville, Spain while studying abroad for a semester. Later in life, this experience would be a true blessing as Jason courted his future Mexican wife.

Upon graduation, Jason ran for political office and worked to save money to attend law school in Nashville, Tennessee at Vanderbilt University. After graduating in 2003, Jason relocated to Florida to begin his law career with G. Penfield Jennings, P.A. in Dunedin. In late 2004, Jason accepted a position with Weaver and McClendon, P.A. in Lake Wales. Having never visited Lake Wales, Jason grew an instant affection for the community and its small town charm. After a short time with the firm, and a full immersion into the community, partners Jim Weaver and Jay McClendon supported Jason in developing an elder law practice. In 2007, Jason became a partner with the new entity Weaver, McClendon & Penrod, LLP.

In early 2013, Jason worked with longtime friend Dennis to open Family Elder Law with his mission to provide exceptional legal services in a compassionate and comforting manner to the needs of the elderly, those with special needs and to their respective families. While mastering the legal side of the law practice, Jason sought the advice and wisdom of his lifelong friend to handle the business operations of the firm. The two have now joined forces and recently expanded their business endeavors by Co-founding Family Financial Services and J & D Properties.

Jason and his wife, Monica, are blessed with two beautiful children, Isabella and Alexander. Jason likes to say that he has two hometowns now: Lake Wales and Buffalo and that he loves both of them. Like Dennis, he prays for and anxiously awaits that elusive Buffalo Sports Championship.
