Asset Protection Strategies & Long-term Care Planning

Discover strategies to protect your assets from the high cost of long-term care (nursing home, assisted living and in-home care).

Special Needs Planning for your Disabled Child

Are you wondering if you should create a special needs fund for your special needs child?

A Special Needs Trust (sometimes referred to as a ‘supplemental needs trust’) is a trust fund for a disabled beneficiary. Special Needs Trusts are created to ensure that the disabled beneficiary has access to a broader pool of assets for their care, without disqualifying them from government benefits.

If you’re interested in special needs planning and would like guidance from experienced special needs planning attorneys, sign up to view our recorded webinar “5 Critical Considerations When Special Needs Planning For Your Disabled Child” .

I did some research and exploration and came upon the offices of Evergreen Elder Law. From the moment I spoke with the receptionist I felt respected, valued and regarded as an important client. I made an appointment for March 20, 2018. When I presented to their offices I spoke with someone who was sympathetic for my loss, confident that their offices could help and exuded competence. I was heartened to note that they were recognized as “Client Choice “Estate Law Office” for 2016.” And my experience with their offices made me a believer.


When my mother retired it became apparent we as a family needed help, Holland Mcburns was recommended by an acquaintance of the family. She was professional and very thorough and informative. I felt she was very up to date on the current opportunities that would best benefit my elderly mother, and make her retirement years worry free. After working with Mrs Mcburns, it was apparent that many people would benefit from her knowledge and dedication. I highly recommend her, and look forward to working with her on my estate planning.


Holland is very attentive and detail oriented. I felt well cared for, she returned calls promptly, and was always very sensitive to my needs. Holland gave me very good advice. She is very ethical and has legal services personalized to your needs.


Holland is a great listener and lawyer. When we came to her with our needs, she thoughtfully listened, was helpful with all our questions, and then explained our options. Her sense of humor helped us through some long waits with the system. In the end, we ended up with a surprisingly favorable settlement and a good friend in the courts.

Holland is truly one of the most sincere and professional attorneys I have come to know and over many years in the legal field. Her work is innovative in the complex area of estate planning and she strives to know the latest legal strategies to protect and represent her clients. Holland is dedicated to satisfying her clients’ needs and does it in a kind manner. She is a wonderful communicator both with her clients and with her colleagues. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of legal services.
