Special Needs Attorney

Let us talk a little about the role of a Special Needs Trust Attorney, as more often than you might realize, these questions and concerns are raised when we work with a family in Wheeling or other Cook County and Lake County communities that has a beneficiary who is mentally or physically challenged. There is deep concern, and rightly so, that provisions are made to care for the loved one and to set up guardianships or conservatorships to provide for all of their needs. Whether special education is required, or the ongoing ability to use the property or to insure essential government benefits continue in addition to the trust money, the Law Offices of Steven H. Peck Ltd. has the expertise to insure the individual with special needs is provided for in the years ahead.
