Jeff Yussman is a member of the Estate Planning Group of Wyatt Tarrant & Combs, LLP, in Louisville, Kentucky, where he chairs the firm’s special needs planning practice, which he runs under the trade name Yussman Special Needs Law. Jeff’s practice has always concentrated in the areas of estate planning and administration, business succession planning and charitable lanning, but the birth of his two special needs children led him into the sub-specialty of planning for individuals with special needs, where he now spends a great deal of his practice time.
Jeff is the Treasurer and Executive Committee member of the national Special Needs Alliance, and is a Fellow in American College of Trusts and Estates Council. Jeff has twice been named Estate Planning Lawyer of the Year in the Louisville area by “Best Lawyers in America,” including for 2019. In addition to his practice, Jeff has also devoted many years serving his community in leadership roles, including as an advisor to the University’s Planned Giving Division, with the Community Foundation of Louisville, Metro United Way, Wellspring (which provides housing and psychiatric rehabilitative services to those facing the challenges of serious and persistent mental illness), and other organizations serving those with special needs.
