Please join McMorrow Law at Representative Dan Miller's 2nd Annual Children and Youth Disability and Mental Health Summit on Wednesday March 11th and Thursday March 12th at the Beth El Congregation, 1900 Cochran Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15220. Events are scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. on both days. McMorrow Law will be attending the event this year as an Exhibitor and will be providing information on special needs guardianships as well as special needs trusts.
Special Needs Guardianships:
Once an individual turns 18, they become a legally competent adult in the eyes of the law. Unfortunately, this does not account for those who are either physically or mentally disabled, and as a consequence are unable to make decisions for themselves. In situations such as this, having a guardian appointed will ensure that the incapacitated individual's interests are safeguarded. McMorrow Law and its experienced attorneys are available to provide representation to individuals and/or families who may need to seek a guardian on behalf a child with special needs or an incapacitated adult.
Special Needs Trusts:
Special Needs Trusts are a valuable and often underutilized tool that should be used as a means of providing financially for a loved one with a disability in a way that protects them from becoming disqualified from public disability benefits. When properly prepared, the trust will serve to supplement rather than replace the public disability benefits.
If you would like more information on special needs guardianships or special needs trusts, stop by the McMorrow Law Exhibit to speak with an attorney or grab a brochure. During the event, we will be donating our services for a free, uncontested guardianship to a selected family with a child who has special needs. While you are visiting, make sure to enter for a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tablet! We will also be giving away McMorrow Law pens and Stainless Steel Travel Coffee Mugs.
If you are unable to attend the Resource Fair, please call our office to speak with an experienced attorney today at 724-940-0100.
