Special Needs Planning


Special Needs Planning

Special Needs Attorney in Athens, GA

At BHL, we can assist you with comprehensive planning for your children with special needs. If you are struggling to raise a child with a physical, developmental or mental disability, we can help you manage the many financial, social and medical issues involved. We can show you ways to obtain the assistance you need today and help ensure your child with special needs will be well cared for when you are no longer able to serve as the primary caregiver yourself. We can help protect your child’s eligibility for Georgia Medicaid, SSI and other government benefits; help you find residential options and the means to pay for them; and help you address your own planning needs and those of other members of your family.

One of the most important tools we can use to protect your child with special needs is a special needs trust. A special needs trust, essentially, helps maintain your child’s eligibility for government assistance programs, including Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), while also creating a fund to supplement the services and/or care that is not covered by these programs.


The needs and care requirements for your child with special needs will change over time, as will your financial resources, and the law. A well-designed special needs trust, as well as periodic reviews of that plan will make sure that your child with special needs is always protected.

You owe it to yourself and your loved one with special needs to work with an attorney who is experienced in this complicated area of the law. 



Thank you for your interest.  I know you have a lot of options when it comes to legal planning.  At BHL, we are devoted to helping medical practitioners protect their loved ones and career through a simple approach to estate and business planning.  I look forward to meeting with you!
