Estate Planning and Special Needs Planning

As attorneys with elderly parents and children with special needs, we understand how critical it is to design an estate plan that addresses your specific needs.

We don't simply take documents off the shelf, dust them off and insert your names in the blanks. We also don't engage in scare tactics about the probate process.

We believe that everyone's estate planning needs are different and we will design your estate planning documents, including Wills, Revocable Trusts, Living Wills, Durable Powers of Attorney, Guardian Memoranda and Special Needs Trusts to fit your exact situation. We can also help with conservatorship and guardianship matters. When a loved one passes away, we can assist with the administration of the Probate Court.

At Scott Franklin & Associates, we will help guide you through the estate planning process. We provide services in the following areas:

Attorney Suzanne Neville knows first-hand what it is like to have a child with significant needs. Her son is autistic and nonverbal. She knows the daily challenges (educational, personal, medical) and expenses of caring for him. Facing many of these challenges, she became worried about what would happen to him if and when his father and she were no longer able to care for him. This is when she decided to practice in this area and educated herself in this field. Her hope is to help make it easier for other families facing the same situation.

We can help you create an SNT customized to meet your child's particular needs.


If you fill out the applicable checklist, we can start preparing your estate planning documents.
