You will need assistance navigating the process of becoming a guardian or conservator for a disabled family member. We will handle everything to make it easy for you.
Special Needs Trusts can provide the means for a disabled person to have resources available for their unique needs without being disqualified from public benefits like SSI and ALTCS. We have experience preparing these trusts that meet federal and state requirements.
