The heart of Jeff's practice is helping families cope with disability and long-term care. He works diligently to help his clients maintain financial autonomy and peace of mind, developing innovative estate plans, challenging bureaucratic errors and establishing Supplemental and Special Needs Trusts to preserve assets for disabled individuals.

His work in these areas requires a practical and technical knowledge of the benefits available through Medical Assistance, Medicare, the Veterans Administration, and Social Security. It also involves the more traditional areas of wills and trusts, guardianships, probate and real estate.

Jeff regularly teaches seminars for attorneys and other professionals. He was an adjunct professor of Elder Law at William Mitchell College of Law.

   I understand that by contacting a lawyer or a law firm through the Academy of Special Needs Planners, I will not create an attorney-client relationship and the message will not necessarily be treated as privileged or confidential. I also understand that if I contact a non-attorney member of the Academy, whether a financial planner, trustee or other non-attorney, that such contact does not by itself mean that the professional has been retained and that communications with the member may not be treated as privileged or confidential.
