Expertise with Customized Trusts for Special Needs

“Our financial planner suggested that because of changing tax laws, we should consider a dynastic trust. As we have a granddaughter on the autistic spectrum, there were other considerations as well. Ellen was very knowledgeable about customizing a trust to suit our unique needs. She set up a dynasty trust for us with special needs provisions to protect and provide for our granddaughter. Ellen understands the issues with special needs children because she is part of that community. ”
