Serving elders and people with disabilities has always been a part of my career path. From my high school job as the aide on a special needs school bus to my eventual transition into the world of elder law and special needs trusts, I have spent over 15 years working to improve the lives of people who are often overlooked and under-served. I am proud to be a Florida-licensed attorney using my experience to lead a team administering 4 pooled trusts specially tailored to the needs of injury victims.
The founders of Pooled Trust Services (PTS) are among the nation’s leading experts on public benefit preservation techniques and trust solutions for personal injury settlements. The staff at PTS is made up of compassionate and dedicated individuals who genuinely want to help personal injury victims.
Considering whether to create a trust to receive a settlement in a mass tort action or a personal physical injury suit is a very important decision. In order to protect eligibility for needs-based public benefits such as SSI/Medicaid, a special needs trust should be considered. Similarly, those who are eligible for Medicare benefits should consider a Medicare Set Aside Trust. Lastly, if someone is disabled or injured and needs help protecting a recovery, a Settlement Management Trust might be an appropriate solution.
