As the parent of a loved one with special needs, you are undoubtedly concerned about obtaining the assistance your loved one needs now and ensuring he or she will be well cared for when you are no longer able to provide adequate care yourself. We work with parents, family members, trustees, and caregivers to help manage the legal, personal, medical, and financial affairs of people with special needs.
This involves gaining a thorough understanding of your priorities for the care of your loved one, helping you obtain that care, explaining all of the options available to you, and analyzing your financial situation to determine the specific benefits available for your loved one. We will design and implement a customized plan to meet your loved one’s needs today and in the future.
Special needs trusts can be used to create a fund to augment services not provided by government assistance programs like Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), while at the same time maintaining eligibility for these vital programs. A special needs trust can include funds for travel, entertainment, education, wheelchair-accessible transportation, advanced dental and medical care, and more. In short, a special needs trust can make money available for services to maximize the quality of life for your loved one with special needs.
You should know that every government assistance program has its own set of rules. These rules can be extremely complicated. If a special needs trust is improperly designed or implemented, it can jeopardize your loved one’s eligibility for assistance from Medicaid and SSI. Our attorneys have extensive experience in this specialized area of the law. Contact us today to schedule a personal meeting with one of our Bloomfield Hills, Macomb, or Rochester special needs attorneys.

Serving Families Through Private & Convenient Zoom Meetings
I first met Mike Rutkowski when my mom needed to update her estate plan, Will and establish a “Living Trust”. In the year that followed, Mike provided us with continuous support through challenges in Probate Court by mom’s family and subsequent revisions to mom’s estate plan and Will. Since mom’s passing, Mike has continued to give me great support as the Trustee of her estate. Recently, I chose Mike’s firm to set up my own Will and Trust. Rutkowski Law Firm and its staff have been a constant support to me at every step of the process. I would recommend Rutkowski Law Firm to any and every one for issues related to Wills, Trusts, Probate, etc. Definitely a reputable firm to trust with your life planning. I give my highest recommendation to this firm for their honesty, integrity and reliability.
After procrastinating for many years I finally decided to get my will and trust done. I expected it to be a lengthy and cumbersome process but I was pleasantly surprised! I chose Rutkowski Law Firm because I saw an ad in the local paper and they were convenient to where I lived. What I got was “white glove” treatment, a very professional and friendly staff, and most importantly, immediate response to all my questions and concerns. I worked with Michael Rutkowski and Trisha Harris—a great team! Without hesitation I would recommend them to anyone looking to get their “affairs in order”.
