Estate Planning is defined as the preparation of a plan to administer one's assets in the event of death or incapacitation.
Such planning may involve drawing up a will, setting up a trust, or minimizing tax liabilities before one's death.
Special Needs Planning is referred to as estate planning for those persons with a disability. The planning process usually goes beyond the traditional estate planning checklist for the financial wealth and distribution of assets of an individual. Often the disabled person also will need an advocate to act on their behalf. An attorney can help to address issues related to an inability to make decisions such as guardianship or medical directives. Family members may seek assistance to help advocate for a disabiled relative. Discussing your goals and needs now and the future is important to me as your attorney. I understand that having an attorney who is compassionate, listens to you, and is sensitive to your needs is important to helping you reach your life goals.
