Adult Disability Services
for families with adult family members with disabilities
About Our Adult Disability Services Practice Area
We provide legal assistance to families with adult family members with disabilities that are experiencing problems securing funding and/or appropriate placement.
We work with families to develop documentation of the need for specialized services, review state policies, and correspondence relating to disputes over funding and placement and identify the most likely avenues for securing a positive resolution. This can include work with government officials, legislators and program administrators to support the case for specialized services and, where necessary, litigation to overturn adverse decisions.
Note that our services do not include guardianship or social security cases. For those services, we can assist the family with referral to lawyers specializing in those areas.
