Special Needs Planning
When individuals have special needs their world becomes much more legally complicated. Often such individuals rely on a combination of benefits, loved ones, and caregivers to meet their daily needs. We work with the families of special needs individuals to ensure that effective care and decision-making is maintained and an inheritance does not cause an ineligibility for the benefits that are often critical to managing such individual’s care.
Frequently, our attorneys assist family members in obtaining guardianship over a disabled child who has become a legal adult so that effective decision-making can be maintained.
