Sirote & Permutt attorney Katherine N. Barr will serve as moderator for an American Bar Association Continuing Legal Education webinar on Special Needs Trusts. The webinar will provide an overview of special needs estate planning and how it differs from elder law and general estate planning. It will also focus on various elements specific to operating a special needs practice.
As a member of Sirote & Permutt's Estate, Wills & Trusts department, Ms. Barr handles all aspects of estate planning and administration for clients. Her passion, however, and the focus of much of her practice involves special needs planning. She assists clients in providing for a child or family member with special needs in a way that does not jeopardize government benefits. She also assists when a person with a disability will receive a personal injury settlement or an inheritance and needs to keep SSI or Medicaid.
