October is National Special Needs Law Month

Fairfax Special Needs Lawyer

The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) has designated October as National Special Needs Law Month. This awareness month is a grassroots effort to educate people with disabilities and their families about their legal options in dealing with guardianship and conservatorship, Medicare, Medicaid, special education, and other important issues.

Many people with disabilities need specialized legal assistance because they depend on government benefits for their medical care and other daily needs. Becoming eligible for government benefits can be an extremely complex process. Then, once the eligibility maze has been successfully navigated, legal assistance is often still needed because the guidelines for maintaining eligibility change frequently.

Families with a loved one with special needs don’t have to figure out the government benefits system alone. They can turn to attorneys with special needs law expertise, such as Evan H. Farr, CELA, to assist and guide them. NAELA’s designation of October as Special Needs Law Month helps to spread the word that knowledgeable legal resources exist and are assessable in communities throughout the United States.

If you have a loved one with special needs, it’s important to provide legal protections for him or her. The Fairfax and Fredericksburg Special Needs Law Firm of Evan H. Farr, P.C. can guide you through this process. Be sure to check out our dedicated Special Needs Website at http://VirginiaSpecialNeeds.com. If you have a loved one with special needs, call 703-691-1888 to make an appointment for a no-cost consultation.
