Passion for Special Needs Planning
While I focus on helping a variety of clients create their estate plans,
I am especially passionate about special needs planning. Throughout my
legal career, it has been my goal to raise awareness to the specific legal
process available to protect special needs individuals.
When your child or loved one has special needs, it's important to create
a plan for their future protection. Most parents wonder what would happen
to their special needs child if they could no longer care for them. With
special needs planning, you can use a variety of legal methods, most specifically a special needs
trust, to safely put money away for your special needs child or family
member and they will still qualify for their government benefits. I can
also assist you with guardianship matters
Tailoring an Estate Plan to Fit Your Needs
When my clients come to me to create an estate plan, I first determine
their needs, goals and objectives. I understand each client has a different
financial and familial situation, which is why I will review your asset
base and family structure before suggesting any services. I have extensive
experience with guiding clients through the estate planning process and
can provide you with the guidance you need today. Allow me to help you
select the most beneficial tools for your respective plan.
I can help you with the following estate planning areas:
- Wills and trusts
- Special needs planning
- Living wills
- Trust administration
- Asset protection
- Powers of attorneys
Additionally I am available to assist with settling a trust, handling the
estate taxes, and inheritance taxes and other debts that might need to
be settled before the trust assets or probate assets are distributed.
While I often work with my clients to help them
avoid probate, I understand there are some cases where that isn't possible. I have
dealt with many courtroom probate processes, always aiming to minimize
the costs associated with probate as well as the time my clients may have
to spend in court.
