What Makes Matus Law Group Different?

Some attorneys provide estate planning services, strategically preserving wealth and ensuring the private transfer of assets to loved ones. Some law firms provide legal services for special needs individuals, advocating for their rights to public benefits, private funds, special education, community resources, and working to assure quality of life and care.

Marus Law specializes in both of these practice areas. Whether you need to create a long-overdue estate plan, or provide for the needs of your special needs child or parent, our NJ estate planning team is dedicated to assisting you every step of the way.

At The Matus Law Group, our founder is not only an experienced and knowledgeable attorney, she is also the mother of a special needs child who is the light of her life.

Estate Planning Customized for Those with Special Needs Families

Everyone should have a good estate plan in place as soon as possible to help ensure their assets, and their loved ones, are prepared should something happen to them. Those who provide care for someone with special needs, however, have an especially strong need to have their estate planning done. They also have a variety of important aspects of this type of planning that they need to take extra care to ensure are done properly. Special needs estate planning can make a huge difference in how your special needs child, parent, or other loved one is cared for both now, and after you pass away.

Planning for children with special needs is a priority at The Matus Law Group. We serve to ensure that your child with a disability will always have an advocate and protector of their legal rights, and access to the care, special education and support they need. We help you put the right plan in place so that governmental benefits and private funds cannot be denied or terminated during your lifetime, or after you pass. Our team will work with you to create a solid plan that provides for your loved one now and long after you are gone.

Guardianship

Guardianships protect the rights and welfare of individuals who are not able to care for themselves. Guardianship actions are based solely on incapacity. When appropriate, we help families and loved ones properly establish guardianships of minor children, and of adult disabled children. We also represent adult children to become the guardians of their incapacitated elderly parents. We will work closely with you to design a solution that works appropriately and respectfully for all parties involved, paying the utmost attention to preserving the dignity and well-being of the person who is in need of care.

Conservatorship

An alternative to a guardianship, a conservatorship is a voluntary action that is overseen by the court, yet is not based solely on an individual’s mental incapacity. Conservatorships are often sought when an aging parent or grandparent is not entirely incapacitated, but wishes to have help managing their property and financial affairs. Our lawyers handle all aspects of conservatorship actions, including initiation of conservatorship proceedings, accounting of finances, representing conservators, contesting the validity of the conservatorship, and more.

Powers of Attorney

A power of attorney is a document that appoints a trusted person of your choosing the legal authority to act on your behalf in various legal, healthcare, and business matters in the event that you become incapacitated, or when you cannot be present. The important uses and benefits of powers of attorney cannot be overstated, and become the backbone of a strong and well thought out estate plan.
