Who We Are
Serving families and individuals with special needs is all we do. 
We don't do employment, business, criminal, or family law (or any other type of law for that matter). If you visit our website, you won't see a dozen "practice areas." Special needs law is complex and everchanging, so we dedicate all of our time to it. As special needs attorneys, we serve our clients in two ways: special education and special needs planning. 

How We Are Different
We are transparent, creative problem solvers who care deeply about those we serve. But much more important than what we may say, here is what our clients are saying:

"Very knowledgeable attorneys, would highly recommend for any special needs case." - A.C.

"They are amazing attorneys, with compassion, care, and they made us feel like we were important to them. I would recommend them to anyone needing representation in this area. They are professional, courteous, they're just great people." - A.P.

"The assistance we received was not only superb and highly professional, but it was also done with great empathy and a firm understanding of our situation. Attorneys took great care to review our case carefully, to answer all of our questions, and offer alternatives based on that research. We highly recommend Shields Law Firm and their attorneys." - A.M.

"If you have a special needs child I recommend [their] services to the fullest." - J.B.

They were detailed and thorough and made sure that we understood the process every step of the way. We are so grateful for what they accomplished on our daughter's behalf. - M.K.

Working with Us
If there is a good fit between you and our law firm, we will offer an individualized special needs plan for you to consider. We may advise a special needs trust for your situation, but we may also suggest something much more simple. 

There are many special needs planning tools, and we will tailor the right combination and approach to your family's needs.

   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.
