Our firm specializes in Supplemental and Special Needs Trusts for disabled individuals. Shareholder Randy Boggio has been a pioneer in Minnesota in this area of law.
When people hear about the practice of “elder law” they imagine we work only with geriatric individuals. Elder law is so much more than just helping people over age 65 or those that are looking at nursing home care. We also work with minor disabled children and help families plan for care once they reach the age of majority.
An inheritance received by an individual who is receiving public benefits (Medical Assistance, for instance) may cause the recipient to lose benefits, force him or her to spend down the inheritance, and reapply to qualify for benefits. In order to preserve assets and ensure the recipient can continue benefits, we work with families to draft the appropriate estate planning documents.
