Temporary or permanent disability can arise unexpectedly, disrupting work, retirement, and plans for the future. By planning ahead, you can ensure someone trustworthy is able to make decisions on your behalf in the event of a disability. Our team provides clear advice and practical solutions with your best interests and the well-being of your family at heart.
Disabilities can affect the best-laid plans of individuals, businesses and estates. With expertise in disability and estate planning, business law, and trusts, Cassady & Company can help protect all your interests, wherever they may lie.
We are also experienced in helping our clients create plans for the well-being of children, including adult children, with disabilities. If you have a child with a disability, it is essential that you put in place a comprehensive plan for the future. Whether your child would be best served by setting up a trust, a committeeship, a power of attorney, or by making other arrangements, we can advise you regarding the available options and help you secure your child’s future.
Some of the services Cassady & Company provides include:
- Power of Attorney – Granting a trusted friend or family member a power of attorney gives that person the power to make important financial, legal or other decisions and take steps on your behalf while you are disabled.
- Representation Agreements – A representation agreement will enable a friend or family member to help you make important medical decisions on your behalf should you find yourself in a position in which you have limited capacity to make such decisions or are simply unable to do so on your own. A representation agreement can also make your intentions known regarding living arrangements and types of treatment, including crucial end of life decisions.
- Trusts- If you have a disabled child, you should consider setting up a disability trust for that child, either during your lifetime or as part of your will, to ensure your child’s needs are met and continue to be met following your death.
We are committed to being a source of stability and security for our clients and their families, as we have been for over a century. When you choose Cassady & Company to represent you, your lawyer will take the time to fully consider your unique circumstances and identify your concerns and your needs. Your best interests will be your lawyer’s top priority as we work together to help you plan for the future.
