Our Story

Special Needs Family Services is the fulfillment of our dream to provide our special needs families with a complete suite of professional services.

It began with Special Needs Law Group of Massachusetts, which provides estate planning, advocacy, and related legal services to clients of all ages, with a focus on the special needs of individuals and their families. We then began serving as trustees of special needs trusts and providing care management services.

As our practice grew, we recognized there was such a need out there for our unique approach. The focus on special needs individuals and their families enables Family Services to be particularly sensitive to the multiple stresses that our clients confront on a daily basis, which are compounded by the complexities of the American legal, educational, and health care systems.

“This is exactly what I was looking for when my family was young – but it didn’t exist.”

~ Annette

They were responsive, prompt, and thoroughly professional. Nothing fell through the cracks and the interactions with staff were seamless. Everyone behaved as part of a cohesive team with a focus on me, the client.”
