Special Needs/Guardianship

Disability and Special Needs Planning We help clients with disabilities plan for their long-term needs. We also advise parents and other family members who wish to provide for disabled family members while preserving eligibility for Medicaid and other public benefits. We provide planning options, draft special needs trusts and other documents as appropriate, and advise trustees on issues of trust administration.

Guardianship and Fiduciary Services We represent people seeking guardianship of relatives, both minors and adults, who can no longer handle their own affairs. We also represent proposed wards who may object to the guardianship. Our attorneys also serve as guardian or guardian ad litem for incapacitated persons.
