Darby Jones

Darby Jones, JD - Owner

I am a Tampa native and graduated from the University of South Florida. I began law school at Stetson College of Law in St. Petersburg, and transferred to American University, Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C. receiving my J.D. in 1990.

I lived and worked in the Baltimore/ D.C. area as an estate planning attorney and as a Trust Officer and Bank Vice President for financial institutions. I enjoy helping families and individuals solve problems and find solutions that both fit their personal needs while achieving important estate planning goals. The best compliment I receive from my clients is “this is the relationship we have been looking for all our lives!” It is that feeling that keeps me passionate and energized.

As an Independent and Professional Fiduciary, I am able to help people find the trust and confidence they need to feel calm and confident about their future and the future of their family. I pride myself in identifying solutions and involving the appropriate professionals, when needed while always involving the family and loved ones. The services we provide vary greatly depending on each client’s needs from personal assistance to the elderly, serving as a Successor Trustee for a family trust, to assisting with bill paying and coordinating with distant family members.

I am a board member of the Tampa Bay Estate Planning Council, a member of the Suncoast Estate Planning Council, and have held many positions with various charitable and educational organizations in both Florida and Maryland. I live in St. Petersburg with my husband Richard, and have two sons, Charlie a Senior at Goucher College in Baltimore and Bobby a Sophomore at the University of Florida.

I am a native from Brandon, Florida, and currently live in St. Petersburg with my husband. I have over 30 years’ experience working in banking, wealth management, and trust services as an administrator and client service representative. This business is a unique and wonderful opportunity to continue my passion for providing superior client service and helping people.

My goal is to ensure that each of our clients are handled with the utmost professionalism and personal care possible. I enjoy developing rapport and on-going relationships with our clients and their family.

I enjoy coordinating the staff’s work flow, schedules, tasks, and overseeing the daily operation of the office.

My husband and I enjoy antique cars and have two antique Chevrolet Corvairs. I serve as Treasurer of our local Corvair Club. When we aren’t going to car shows, I enjoy growing orchids in my greenhouse, reading, and crafts.

I am a former owner of a tax and accounting practice in Largo, Florida; an accomplished tax advisor; and an Enrolled Agent, a licensed tax professional enrolled to practice before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Working at Professional Fiduciary Services, LLC provides me with the opportunity to keep my skills sharp while experiencing a new area of client services. My focus will be providing our clients with the comfort that their account maintenance is accurate, professionally maintained and that accountings are provided in a timely manner. I also enjoy working with the client’s professional advisors to enhance their services.

I am a past president of the Florida Society of Enrolled Agents and member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents President’s Council. I am a current member of the National Association of Tax Professionals.

I presently reside in Parrish with my husband and enjoy reading, traveling and spending time with my family.
