As Of Counsel at Margolis & Bloom, Karen B. Mariscal practices in the areas of special needs estate planning, guardianship, and disability law. Karen has been a highly-regarded lawyer in private practice for more than 30 years, half of that time in New York City and half in Boston at Peabody & Arnold, LLP, and White & Williams, LLP.

Karen is a passionate advocate for her clients, including people who have family members with special needs. She and her husband have a severely autistic son who is now a young adult, living at home, so she understands how to navigate the system and what parents go through. Karen has been very active in Special Olympics, founding Wellesley’s Special Olympics track team (part of Wellesley S.T.A.R.S.), is a member of the Adult Services Committee of AFAM (Advocacy for Autism Massachusetts) and is on the board of Camp Starfish, a camp for children with emotional and behavioral issues. She is an active member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.

In addition to estate planning and guardianship (including supported decision-making), Karen provides families with information, resources, and practical assistance regarding their children’s adult day programming and housing and residential options and supports. Karen is a graduate of Indiana University, cum laude, and Northwestern University School of Law, cum laude.

   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.
