Newport Beach Estate Planning Attorneys Who Care About Your Family
AV-rated* lawyer L. Scott Karlin, Michael J. Karlin and David E. Karlin offer comprehensive legal knowledge and experience handling special needs trusts and estate planning for families with members who have debilitating mental and physical disabilities.
Often, money set aside for a child or adult with special needs can be misappropriated after the death of the responsible parent. With a properly written trust, you can specify:
- The overall long-term care for your child with special needs
- Instructions for special medical care
- The proper criteria and conditions under which benefits would be given to your child, taking into account available government assistance
- Alternative trustees
When you consult with The Karlin Law Firm, our compassionate attorneys will help you understand important criteria that should be considered when choosing a trustee, as well as, draft a trust customized to fit your family members' needs, ultimately ensuring a better quality of life for your child.
We recognize that all families are different, and our legal team will work with you to understand your unique situation and address any questions you have regarding government assistance and involvement in your trust, and all other related concerns.
