Disability Planning, Special Needs Trust, Guardianship and Conservatorship
Farr Law Firm
Who We Are
Evan H. Farr, CELA, CEA, and the Farr Law Firm offer the following services:
Guardianship and conservatorship for incapacitated adults, guardianship for children and disabled persons; estate planning for parents of disabled children; and special needs planning.
Attorneys are available to assist families with protecting assets for a disabled family member and to prevent the loss of current and future eligibility for state and federal benefits programs through the Special Needs Trust services.
Special Needs Trusts are trusts created to shelter assets for the benefit disabled person under 65 years of age. A trust can be created when a person wins a personal injury lawsuit and received a money judgment or parents who wish to provide funds to support the disabled child during the balance of the child's life. . The family leaves whatever resources it deems appropriate to the trust and the trust is managed by a trustee on behalf of the person with the disability. The Special Needs Trust can pay for needs that go beyond food, shelter and clothing and the medical support services of Medicaid. The Special Needs Trust would be set up to supplement, not replace public benefits.
