Special Needs Law

There is no uniformly accepted definition of “special needs,” but we can assume that this term encompasses individuals with a wide variety of physical or mental conditions who may require special legal support.

The individual may currently be supported by family but long-term planning needs to take place to protect the care of the special needs person in the event of the death of the current caregivers.


The main purposes of Special Needs Law is to ensure that your loved one is provided for financially and physically. This may encompass any of the following topics:

  • Special Needs Estate, Trust and Tax Planning

  • Special Educational Needs

  • Financial Planning and Legal Assistance

  • Guardianships and Conservatorships

  • Trust and Estate Administration

  • Fiduciary Accounting

  • Health Care Decisions and Advance Directives

  • Government Benefits


There is no single solution for long-term planning for individuals with special needs. It requires evaluation of the specific needs of the individual and their family.


The goal of Hastings Law, LLC is to provide you with the necessary information and support systems necessary to provide for the best lifestyle for the special needs individual. Give us a call today at (215) 230-4300 for more information.
