As the parent of a daughter with a disability I know how difficult and overwhelming it is to think and plan for a future when I can no longer be there for her. Every family situation is different and each estate plan is unique. I work closely with my clients to develop an estate plan that will ensure that their property is distributed in accordance with their wishes and that funds can be left to their child or loved one with a disability without jeopardizing government benefits. My goal is to give my clients peace of mind knowing that they have a plan in place that will provide for the future needs and security of their family.
