For families

Jeff understands personally the unique challenges of caring and planning for a family member with special needs, allowing him to provide holistic and practical advice.

For attorneys

Jeff frequently works alongside other attorneys to offer advice on complex estate planning and special needs laws.  For example, when a family or individual receives a judgment or settlement in a lawsuit, Jeff will work with the family’s counsel to assure that the payments don’t jeopardize government benefits otherwise due the disabled person. He also has extensive experience serving as a neutral or partisan consultant in mediations.
