Special Needs Children

Protecting the rights of our children and young disabled, and ensuring that they have access to every available resource is critical. An attorney can assist a family by helping it through the government maze to determine their children’s rights before school age, upon entering and continuing in school and after that child becomes an adult. A Special Needs attorney can work to ensure that their educational and other needs are met and in assisting families plan for the long-term care of their children.


Guardianship is a legal proceeding whereby a Court appoints an individual to assist an incapacitated person. The powers given to the Guardian can be tailored to meet the needs of the incapacitated person.


The adoption of a child can bring great joy to a family, but it can also bring a myriad of court filings and legal proceedings that require strong representation.
