Our Mission

Our success rests in part on the broad perspective we take in addressing the legal needs of our clients. We are equally prepared to advocate in a school district IEP meeting as we are to litigate in the courtroom. We explore and maximize all opportunities to help parents achieve their goals for their children. In addition, we can protect your estate assets against your possible future mental or physical incapacity and the catastrophic costs of long-term medical and nursing care.

Special Education

In New Jersey, every child who has a disability and meets legal criteria, or who has a disability that adversely impacts his/her education, is entitled to a free and appropriate public education. This means that school districts must offer special needs children access to a full range of educational settings.

Estate Planning

Estate Planning is important, no matter what the size of your estate may be. Through estate planning, you ensure that your assets will go to your intended beneficiaries. You may also save money on taxes, court costs, and attorney’s fees, and prevent squabbling among your heirs and financial confusion after your death.

Advocating For Your Special Needs Family Member One of the services we offer is Guardianship — an important legal protection for adults with special needs. As your family member approaches his or her 18th birthday, you should consider taking action that will legally appoint you as his or her guardian. By doing this, you’ll be able to act on his or her behalf when making important decisions regarding education, medical treatment, and financial matters.
