We can help you find the assistance you need today and show you how to ensure your special needs child will be well-cared for when you are gone or are no longer able to serve as the primary caregiver.
We want your child to receive his or her inheritance and to guarantee that he or she is never dependent on the inadequate care provided by the government for support.

Experienced Special Needs Trust Attorney
To ensure that your child’s future is effectively protected, our lawyers will work with different agencies to obtain as much information as we can. We will use that information to make sure that your child maximizes his or her benefits, while getting the care he or she needs. Some of the other ways we can help include:
- Designing a special needs trust for your child to avoid costly mistakes down the road
- Alleviating any concerns you may have regarding your child’s eligibility for SSI and other government benefits
- Creating a way to provide your child with an inheritance that will ensure he or she is never left dependent on the government for care and support
- Guiding you and your family through the guardianship process once your child turns 18
To accomplish these goals, our compassionate attorneys will work with you one on one to make certain that we understand your needs and priorities. Through a thorough investigation of your financial situation, we will be able to determine what benefits are available to you and what strategies we can use to maximize financial security going forward.
