Special Needs Planning is a complex and emotional process.

Our team of special needs planning attorneys and social workers have the expertise and the sensitivity that is essential to helping families understand and plan for the future. We help clients and their loved ones who are receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI), social security, Medicaid, Medicare, housing options and services through Community Mental Health and other agencies. As they will help you understand, there is much more to planning than simply creating a special needs trust.

We can also assist with questions regarding guardianships, when they are needed and when alternatives are available.
