Pierro, Connor & Strauss, LLC strives to make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities.
Planning for an individual with a disability requires special knowledge of estate planning rules, guardianship laws, and government benefits. If you are a person with a disability or have a person with a disability in your life, please contact one of our Special Needs Planning Attorneys for a consultation to develop an individualized estate and long-term care plan which best fits your needs. We have experience helping clients across New York City, Albany, and many other parts of the state and are ready to go to work for you.
Special Needs Planning includes decision-making for the individual with a disability either through the use of a Durable Power of Attorney and Health Care Proxy or through a guardianship. It also includes estate and benefits planning for the individual, often through the use of a Supplemental Needs Trust (SNT). In addition, Pierro, Connor & Strauss, LLC Special Needs attorneys can assist with the application for Medicaid benefits and advocacy through other government agencies.
