    My practice focuses on the needs of those disabled due to personal injuries. I provide advisement about techniques to preserve public assistance eligibility.

Settlement planner and lawyer with extensive experience dealing with the catastrophically injured. There are many settlement planning issues to consider when a personal injury case settles to maximize the recovery. Medicaid, Medicare and ERISA liens have to be negotiated. Trusts often times have to be created. A Special Needs Trust or Medicare Set Aside trust might be necessary. Investment decisions have to be made. Structured settlements should be evaluated and potentially implemented. Tax and estate planning may be necessary. All very difficult issues to deal with for even the most sophisticated lawyers and injury victims. This is where I come in.

 

Specialties:

Creating special needs trusts to preserve Medicaid/SSI. Advising on creation of Medicare Set Asides to preserve Medicare benefits. Establishing qualifed settlement funds to deal with complex settlement issues in catastrophic cases.
