Cole Schotz’s Tax, Trusts & Estates Department is among the largest specialized groups in the Metropolitan New Jersey/New York area. The attorneys of the Tax, Trusts & Estates Department counsel individuals and businesses in a wide range of tax, estate and succession planning strategies.

Special Needs Planning is a unique area which requires special expertise. Cole Schotz attorneys have experience planning for persons with special needs, including preparing trusts for assets owned by a special needs child and preparing trusts to be the recipient of assets to be dedicated, by gift or inheritance, to a disabled or incapacitated individual. This planning is essential to ensure that the individual’s ability to receive governmental benefits is protected.

The Cole Schotz New Jersey Law for Special Needs Blog was created to provide families with information to help them protect and provide for their special needs children now and in the future. The blog provides a mix of articles from our attorneys as well as other guest writers from organizations involved in the special needs community. Our goal is to help families understand and navigate this difficult and confusing area of the law.
