Special Needs Planning Attorneys

At Littman Krooks, we believe that all individuals are entitled to lives of dignity and social engagement, in accordance with their wishes and capabilities. We are committed to assisting individuals with special needs, along with the family members who care for them, in the building of fulfilling, economically secure lives.

Identifying the best services for someone with special needs can be daunting. We can help you navigate the system, understand your child’s legal rights, and establish the financial foundation that will enable as much independence as possible. Our goal is to empower families with the tools they need to advocate for their loved ones—for a free and appropriate education, public benefits, and social services.

We have a track record of successfully working with the school systems in New York City, as well as in Westchester, Dutchess and neighboring counties. And because our New York special needs planning attorneys understand the complex relationship between government entitlements and personal assets, we can protect eligibility for crucial programs such as Medicaid and SSI, while helping you build an economic base that will support a comfortable lifestyle for your child.

New York City Special Needs Attorneys and Special Education Lawyers

As your child approaches the age of 18, we can help you establish guardianship, if necessary, and we can support your efforts to prepare her for post-high school education, work, and in-community residential options.

Because special needs planning and special education advocacy are core practices for us, we are always abreast of the latest developments in these rapidly changing fields. We also play leadership roles in both local and national nonprofits that serve individuals with special needs and their families. In fact, several of our attorneys found their way to special needs law because of family experiences, which means that for us—like you—it’s personal.

We understand that building a life that’s rewarding and secure for someone with special needs is a family affair. We also understand that your family has a unique set of hopes and challenges. Let our team of New York special needs planning attorneys help you safeguard the future of your loved one.
