A Range of Legal Services to Mitigate Life’s Uncertainties

There are many things in life that can’t be prevented — they can only be dealt with. If you’re facing your own or a loved one’s disability, or you’re worried that unexpected misfortune may derail your future plans, talk to the qualified attorneys at the law firm of Kearns & Kearns about how you can protect your assets, and provide for your loved ones, no matter what the future holds.

Since 1985, Kearns & Kearns has provided a full range of legal services designed to meet the needs of elders and the disabled. We help our clients navigate the complex arenas of probate law, estate planning, elder care law, settlement services, and special needs trusts. With our help, you or someone you love can stay independent in the face of age or disability, continue to enjoy public benefits, and protect life savings and other assets.

Do you have a loved one with special needs who relies on your care? Are you yourself facing a disability that could impair your ability to live independently? At Kearns & Kearns, we can help you set up a special needs trust in West Hartford, CT that can help you provide for your own future needs or those of a loved one who relies on you for care. With a special needs trust, you or someone you care about will have the funds to live comfortably and still qualify for public benefits.

Are you approaching retirement and worried that future medical expenses could eat up all of your assets, leaving nothing for your family? The attorneys of Kearns & Kearns specialize in elder law and are members of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the Connecticut Bar Association’s Elder Law Section. We can help with long-term care and estate planning so you can leave your assets to your loved ones.

Have you been awarded a legal settlement? If so, you’re probably incapacitated and need that money to last as long as possible. Let Kearns & Kearns help you stretch your settlement money, while still preserving your eligibility for public benefits.

Are you the executor of a will or of an estate that has no will? Probate law is complex and it’s a lot to manage on your own. Luckily, you don’t have to do it alone; Kearns & Kearns are on your side, to help you deal with the complexities of probate at this difficult time.
