Disability Law

Helping People with Disabilities Maintain a Quality of Life


Disability Law is an integral piece of Elder Law. Individuals with disabilities need extra resources to maintain a quality of life.  Children and adults may need to qualify for government benefits. Children with a disability are aging into adulthood, which creates special estate planning concerns.  As society ages, there is an increased focus on caring for the elderly with dementia and Alzheimer’s, which requires special estate planning. Let Sheri Tucker help you and your family. She works with individuals and families to provide exceptional service and compassionate advocacy with integrity.

  • Medicaid Planning:  Elderly parents may find that they need Medicaid to help pay for in-home care, or even memory care homes.  Seniors may not be financially prepared for higher prices. Tucker Legal Services will help you find out whether or not your loved one qualifies for benefits.  There are two ways to plan, given to you in Elder Law
  • SSI/SSDI: Life events happen and a person may find that he or she needs SSI/SSDI. Sometimes a person may not understand what benefits are available.   The lack of understanding about disability determination may cause you to have a rejected application. Sometimes parents are unaware that a child with a disability may also qualify for benefits and have an ABLE Account.  Sheri is able to help parents with the childhood application for disability determination that may immediately benefit a child or be available at the age of 18. 
  • Blind Pension Benefits: A person who is determined to be legally blind requires special needs and qualifies for certain state benefits.  Sometimes a person unknowingly jeopardizes benefits or may not know what is needed to qualify. The firm is able to provide guidance, and help with an appropriate estate plan that takes the benefits into consideration.
  • Special Needs Planning: Conventional estate planning solutions can leave a beneficiary with a disability unable to qualify for state health care and long-term care programs.The failure of proper planning may have lasting negative consequences. Tucker Legal Services provides the steps to help everyone understand proper gift-giving and bequests to a person with special needs.
