Some life challenges are so pivotal, with such far-reaching impact on your finances and future, that counsel from an experienced attorney is essential. Navigating the processes required to obtain government disability benefits if you cannot work constitutes one such challenge. Developing an estate plan to distribute your assets according to your wishes is another.
At Friedman & Downey, P.C., our lawyers guide people all across Alabama through these challenges with empathy and determination as well as extensive legal knowledge. In our first meeting with each client, we offer clear, balanced insight into what we believe we can accomplish and steps required to accomplish the goals at hand.
Caring Counsel and Skilled Representation for the Disabled in Alabama
People who cannot work due to injury, physical illness or serious mental conditions often need a skilled lawyer on their side to get Social Security disability benefits or veterans benefits. You may need guidance from the outset of the filing process or, like many thousands of others each month, you may have received a disability claim denial that calls for knowledgeable, professional representation to help you get that decision reversed.
Estate Planning to Support Individual Goals and Family Needs
Financial planning for the eventuality of your death or incapacity may also involve many complex considerations and decisions. Our estate planning attorneys are prepared to engage with you on a personal level in order to establish a will or trust optimal for your goals, and we have a specific strength in special needs planning for disabled and vulnerable family members.
