Dedicated to Families with Special Needs

Special Needs Trusts, Conservatorships & Transitions

Thank you for visiting my site image
Dear Special Needs Parents,

I feel like I already know you.

You’re online doing research at 2 A.M. You’re sending emails late at night, looking for answers. You’re awake because your child is awake when they should be asleep, or, you’re awake because your child is actually asleep and it’s the only chance you have to get things done.

With 25 years experience working with special needs families, I've come to keenly understand the challenges faced by parents like you. Though each child's needs are varied and complex, the situations faced by families like yours are all too similar.

Stress and pressure fill your days. Resources are stretched. Questions about the future fill your mind like corn popping in a microwave.

I know you're always seeking solutions to help your child.

It would be my pleasure to help you in that journey.

And share some smiles along the way :)

Thank you for visiting my site. I hope to see you soon.


Revocable Living Trusts

Your estate plan must provide for your entire family. Your Revocable Living Trust serves as the foundation for your estate plans. We have 20+ years experience helping thousands of parents create Living Trusts for their families.

Special Needs Trusts

Your Special Needs Trust is the cornerstone of planning for your child with special needs. We're experts at helping you create a comprehensive, highly-personalized Special Needs Trust to ensure your child's lifetime care and protection.


When your child reaches age 18, the law takes away your parental rights. A Conservatorship ensures that you will continue to have authority and control to care for and protect your child beyond age 18. We've helped hundreds of families with Conservatorships for their adult children.


Special needs planning requires more than just a Trust. That's why we created the "Family Income, Reserve, & Security Trust." Your FIRST Plan takes into account the varying needs of all your children as life unfolds.

Six Degrees Planning

Effective special needs planning requires a lifetime perspective. Our special needs plans are built within our proprietary "Six Degrees of Transition" planning methodology. Our parents are very excited to see that there is a clear and practical path for their child's future, and their own.

GONE Planning

Our "Go Out Now & Enjoy" Transition Plan will help you put everything in place for your child's care and protection for the time when you can't be there. Then we help you actually see how everything works on your real-time "GONE Test Drive."
