Filis Law Firm specializes in helping families with children with special needs – like Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Autism, Down Syndrome, etc. – in areas including Special Needs Trusts, Family Law, Probate, Estate Planning, and Guardianship.
They will knowledgeably guide you though the legal issues your family needs to address, whether you’re starting at the beginning and considering a Special Needs Trust, or you have more complicated matters – like whether your family needs a Medical Power of Attorney with a Durable Power of Attorney or if Guardianship of an adult child with special needs will meet your needs.

Filis Law Firm’s 8 Legal Steps
If you live in the States, the very first thing you need to do is to sign your child up for the waiting list for Medicaid waiver programs. These programs offer so many things that will benefit your family. Do be aware that these programs are based on child assets not parent income. Watch this video below to learn more.
Next, start educating yourself about the legal steps you need to take in order to protect your child’s eligibility for affordable health care, medical equipment funds, home remodeling financial assistance and respite care for the caregivers.
