A Special Needs Trust Can Protect Your Loved One
We relentlessly promote the rights of vulnerable individuals who have been abused, neglected or exploited by a caregiver, guardian, friend or family member. We have advocated on behalf of vulnerable individuals who have fallen victim to predators who open accounts, credit cards or take financial action in the name of an incapacitated individual in order to exploit them.
Often, we will advise friends and family members on the creation of special needs trusts to ensure their vulnerable loved one is properly cared for, without affecting that individual’s eligibility for public aid. We will monitor how this money is used in order to protect your loved one against financial exploitation.
