LEGAL DISCLAIMER: BeneCounsel, Inc., presents the information on this website as a service to members of the general public. Use of this site does not create an attorney-client relationship between BeneCounsel and the user. While the information on this site is about legal issues, it is not intended as legal advice or as a substitute for the advice of your own counsel.
At BeneCounsel, we are eager to assist families by offering free, in-home consultations regarding transition planning, capacity, supported decision-making and guardianships, disability benefits planning and appeals, and special needs trusts and estate planning, and by answering as many questions as we can on a pro bono basis.
For matters that are more complex, we will advise you on your options after we conduct a thorough review of your family's unique situation and your child's abilities, challenges, and special needs. By doing so, we can bring a measure of clarity to the choices you face.
We believe that it is best to avoid costly SSI & SSDI appeals if at all possible, but sometimes appeals are unavoidable due to the nature of the Social Security Agency and its myriad of rules and regulations. If an appeal is unavoidable, we will persuasively advocate for your child's rights.
