Special Needs

When a family member has a disability, specialized legal expertise is needed. You may be asking yourself:

  • “How will I pay for their needs in the years to come?”
  • “Who will take care of them if I’m no longer around?”
  • “What can I do to give them the best future possible?”

At WanderPolo & Siegel, our goal is to help our clients best prepare for the challenges that lie ahead for the family member with special needs. We do this by assisting clients in creating specialized trusts, estate and life care plans to provide for family members with disabilities. We also help clients establish guardianships and conservatorships so their loved ones can receive needed personal, medical and financial care when they are no longer able to do so. We can assist with public benefits concerns and work with clients to maximize community resources.

Through our special counsel, George Holland, we also provide advocacy services related to individualized education plans (IEPs), alternative and transitional placements and litigation with local school districts and state agencies.

Our attorneys offer a holistic approach focusing on:

  • Specialized estate planning
  • Special needs trusts
  • Trust administration and trustee representation
  • Special education litigation
  • Special education advocacy
  • Employment and residential issues
  • Guardianships and conservatorships
  • Public benefits
