Special Needs Planning

Individuals with mental health problems regularly face legal battles in which they must fight to maintain government benefits, housing, secure an adequate income, etc. In some instances, individuals with mental health problems are taken advantage of due to a lack of or diminished capacity. At Miller, Turetsky, Rule & McLennan we assist mental health consumers with issues involving the above matters along with many others. If you or a loved one suffer from mental health problems and feel as though you may need legal advice please do not hesitate to contact us.

Special Needs Planning is an area of law which is centered on the legal needs of families that have loved ones with disabilities. At Miller, Turetsky, Rule & McLennan, we plan the future and security of your loved ones with disabilities by providing services that fully encompass the current and future financial needs of said individual(s). In most instances, public benefits do not provide for all of a person’s needs to be met, therefore other financial resources must be put in place in order to ensure your loved one(s) needs are being met by utilizing tools that enhance quality of life, all while not affecting eligibility for public benefits such as Medicaid and Veterans benefits. If you have a loved one with special needs, please contact us for a consultation. We would love to help your family plan for the future.
