Disability Attorney Lansing MI
Special Needs Trusts & Planning
At times, people with various disabilities may find that some government assistance will depend in part not only on the severity of any condition or disability with which they live, but also available resources. Because an income stream and access to medical coverage via insurance, or Medicaid or the like, can be critical, we can often help families plan around benefits, and supplement services with special needs trusts or intelligent “spend-downs” of monies that drop into a disabled person’s lap.
There are several approaches or tools available, but seldom is there a “one size fits all” solution. Anything from a MiABLE account to a special needs trust, to trips to probate court to set up a protective order, to pooled trusts, or prudent spending of money allowed under the regulations to improve the life of the person with a disability are all taken into account.
…Brad was extremely thorough when explaining, and also open-minded to my suggestions and concerns. He seems to understand life thru many perspectives; I believe we got along great considering the age gap between us. It could be education, it could be his ability to relate…
A dedicated and friendly advocate with a passion for the law, particularly as it intersects with the rights of the elderly and undeserved.
When I needed him, Brad was there. . . Every time. . . He has much patience, perseverance, is not pushy, but yet with his expertise, knowledge and research, knows how to write or say what is needed to get results! He went out of his way to get me out of a big bind I was put in. Thank you :- ) Michael Hicks Hicks Agency (Insurance) 428 W. Lenawee St. Lansing MI
