A special needs trust may be created to ensure that your mentally or physically disabled child who is or may be receiving government benefits does not lose eligibility for this vital assistance.
A special needs trust can be created in your will so that a disabled beneficiary’s inheritance is managed by a trustee of your choosing. The rules governing the proper use of special needs trust funds are complex. This office can provide advise and guidance to the trustee to ensure compliance with the regulations governing special needs trust distributions.
A special needs trust can also be established to receive compensation from a settlement. This situation is common if an individual has been injured by the negligence of another and has secured a monetary settlement or judgment from that party.

A trust enables you to specify conditions to receive payments and allow you to spread benefit payments over a period of time. Trusts fall into two broad categories:
- Testamentary trusts transfer property into the trust only after the grantor’s death.
- Living trusts, or “inter vivos” trusts, start during the life of the grantor and can be designed to continue after death.

How Can We Help You ?
I had no idea estate planning was so important until my mom was diagnosed with cancer and had 6 weeks to live. A neighbor recommended Nicholas Giuditta. The first phone call and meeting sealed the deal. His compassion, understanding, and willingness to guide me thru this process when time was of the essence lifted a large burden off of my shoulders. Estate planning at any time is overwhelming but Nick was there with professional guidance and a shoulder to lean on every step of the way. He was always willing to answer any questions, give legal advice, and assist in handling a lot of family drama. I was so pleased with Nick’s services, that my husband and I actually did ‘our’ estate planning with Nick. I would highly recommend Nicholas Giuditta! You not only receive the best professional help but also make a friend in the process!
I hired Nick Giuditta to settle legal issues regarding my mother’s estate. I found him to be a very knowledgeable and capable attorney who carefully listened to the problems about my mother’s estate, asked questions, and he took the time to explain my options and the pros and cons of each possible outcome. I also found him to be always professional, diligent, efficient and transparent in keeping me informed as to everything he was working on that led to the ultimate goal of fairly settling all of the legal issues on my mother’s estate. He met and exceeded all of my expectations. I would hire him again to represent me, and I would not hesitate to recommend Nick’s legal talents, skills and abilities to any person.
