Special Needs and Disability Planning
According to Wikipedia, in the United States there are 32 million disabled persons over the age of 18 and 5 million under the age of 18.
It can be difficult to ensure assets are protected and the person is cared for in the long term. Whether planning for yourself, a child, a family member or a friend, assistance can be helpful when negotiating through the system.
Our lawyers counsel individuals, enabling them to remain independent to the extent possible, as well as those wishing to provide for a disabled child or adult.
Through the use of Trusts, such as Special or Supplemental Needs Trusts, assets can be protected for the use of the disabled individual, enhancing his or her life. We can help you ensure trusts are set up properly.
