CLE Publications

Minor's Settlements, Guardianship, Conservatorship & Special Needs Trusts

Electronic Publication (PDF version)

Do you have a case involving a minor or adult with a mental disability or brain injury? What are your ethical obligations? Do you need court approval? Are there public benefits involved? Put this book on your must-buy list and learn from the experts about this complex area of law.

This dynamic book will answer common questions that arise in everyday practice, such as:

  • Can you be sued if you get it wrong, even if the court approved the settlement? (The answer is yes, so you must proceed with extreme caution.)
  • What types of trusts are available and how do they work? What about the small settlement?
  • Structured settlements—what are they, and are they a good idea?
  • What are your ethical obligations in cases involving a minor or an adult who has a brain injury or is mentally disabled?
