Expert guidance with an empathetic ear and an open mind.

Uncomplicating access to world class legal services

Special Needs Trusts

Estate planning attorneys can establish special needs trusts (SNTs) to manage assets and funds for the benefit of the individual with special needs without jeopardizing their eligibility for government benefits such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Guardianship and Conservatorship

Attorneys can assist families in establishing guardianship or conservatorship arrangements to ensure that a responsible individual is legally appointed to make decisions related to the individual's personal and financial affairs if they are unable to do so themselves.

Comprehensive Estate Plans

Estate planning attorneys can create comprehensive estate plans that address the unique needs of families with individuals who have special needs, including wills, powers of attorney, healthcare directives, and other legal documents to provide guidance and protection in various scenarios.

Government Benefit Eligibility

Attorneys can advise families on strategies to maintain or establish eligibility for government benefits while maximizing available resources to enhance the individual's quality of life and meet their specific needs.

Coordination with Other Professionals

Estate planning attorneys often collaborate with financial planners, accountants, and other professionals to develop holistic plans that address financial, legal, and care-related aspects of caring for someone with special needs.

Advocacy and Education

Attorneys can serve as advocates for individuals with special needs and their families, providing guidance, support, and resources to navigate legal complexities and ensure their rights are protected.
