Legal Planning for Special Needs, located in Lexington, Massachusetts, is a law office for families like ours who have a member with a disability. My name is Barbara Jackins, and I have been an attorney for 35 years. When I am not assisting my clients, I volunteer for several local non-profit groups that serve people with disabilities and their families. I have also written several books on disability-related topics. But my most important role has been as a life-long advocate for my son with developmental disabilities who is now age 30.
Why not let my background, experiences, and legal expertise benefit you and your family? I can:
My goal is to give you accurate, objective information that is tailored to your family's needs.
If you would to meet and talk, call my office for an appointment. Why delay? For families like ours, the future starts now!
