Lewis Johs’ attorneys are skilled in providing assistance for individuals with various disabilities and special needs. Some government benefits are affected by the assets and income of an individual or when someone leaves them bequests in a last will and testament. Our attorneys prepare various trusts to ensure that the individuals continue to receive their benefits while being able to use these additional funds to supplement their lives.
Additionally, if an individual is developmentally disabled, they may need a guardian to assist them when making medical decisions or handling their finances. Once that individual turns 18 years of age, a parent no longer has the authority to make these decisions. Our attorneys can help a parent of family member get appointed as a legal guardian so they can continue to assist the individual beyond the age of majority.
