Lead Counsel independently verifies Special Needs Trust attorneys in Bridgeville and checks their standing with Delaware bar associations.Our Verification Process and Criteria
A special needs trust is used to ensure a loved one who is disabled and needs long-term care or other assistance can use the money and property in the trust without jeopardizing Supplemental Security Income and Medicaid benefits. Assets other than a car or house and furnishings disqualify eligibility for those benefits.
To ensure benefits will not be put in jeopardy, you should consult a Bridgeville attorney who is experienced in establishing special needs trusts. The trust must be handled precisely and conform to the applicable law and regulations.
An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.
An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic “road map” on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you’ve laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.
For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney’s track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
Personal jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority over a person, in order to bind that person to the judgment of the court, based on minimum contacts. International Shoe Co v. Washington is a landmark Supreme Court case outlining the scope of a state court’s reach in personal jurisdiction.
