Special Needs planning for persons with disabilities to enhance the lives and health of those who are dependent on public benefits.
The facts and myths behind Medi-Cal and Long Term Care Planning. Understanding what is meant by the home being an exempt asset, how the home is valued and recovery issues.
The difference between amending a trust and modifying a trust. In California the law allows for the modification of trusts by the Court, even those that are irrevocable under certain circumstances.
