Planning For Individuals With Special Needs And Individuals In Need Of A Guardian

At Lissner & Lissner LLP, we are known for the special needs planning services we provide. We have worked with elderly people, Holocaust Survivors and people with disabilities. The trusted and experienced guidance we provide ensures that individuals with special needs and those who may need legal guardianship receive the care they deserve.

Legal Services For Those With Special Needs

Our experienced lawyers prepare special needs trusts and other documentation for individuals with special needs. When putting together a plan, we will ensure that assets are properly placed in trusts that will assist those with special needs without disqualifying them from government benefits such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income. This is a job for experienced attorneys, and we have assisted hundreds of clients throughout New York, New Jersey and Florida with these trusts.

Help For Those In Need Of A Guardian

Courts may appoint legal guardians for minor children whose parents cannot provide adequate care for them. Guardianships may also be established for adults who are no longer able to manage their personal, medical or financial affairs. Regardless of the type of guardianship established, guardians face significant responsibility. We can help you petition for guardianship of an individual in need and provide ongoing legal support.

We will work closely with you to make certain you are able to carry out your specific guardianship duties. Having provided this sort of representation since the 1980s, we understand the accounting requirements and numerous deadlines involved. Our services allow you to focus on the person you care for while we help you comply with the legal requirements.
