Welcome to our Blog!
We are excited to announce the launch of the Guardian Trust blog! Our blog will feature information that we feel may be useful to professionals assisting clients with Special Needs Trust issues, as well as information for family members and beneficiaries doing their own research.
We will also feature blog posts from our Co-Trustees, Board Certified Elder Law attorney Travis D. Finchum and Elder Law attorney Steven E. Hitchcock. Aside from serving as Co-Trustees for the various Guardian Trusts, Travis and Steve are practicing attorneys whose practice focuses on estate planning, probate, trust administration and guardianship, with a special emphasis on helping families plan for a member with special needs. They also help families plan for incapacity through alternatives to guardianship.
Travis will be speaking to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in Pasco County in April about Special Needs Trusts. Steve will be speaking with professional guardians of the Suncoast Guardian Association in April at their Annual seminar, "Accessing Information, Advocating for and Addressing the Needs of the Ward."
Will we see you at the Academy of Florida Elder Law Attorney's (AFELA) Elder Concerts in May? Travis and Steve will be facilitating sessions at the programs. Stop by our table and say hello!
Keeping our "followers" up-to-date on the latest happenings in the Special Needs Trust and Pooled Trust community is very important to us. As always, feel free to call our office or email us anytime with questions you or your client may have.
