Special People, Special Planning

Today I attended an event hosted by Bright Feats ( , a local organization created by two moms that publishes a resource directory in Central Florida for special needs and children. I was there on behalf of my law firm, The Law Offices of Hoyt & Bryan, LLC ( and to promote my book on special needs planning, Special People, Special Planning - Creating a Safe Legal Haven for Families with Special Needs ( They partnered with another local organization Nathaniel's Hope ( who offers a Buddy Break program providing respite care for special needs kids so parents can get a much needed break.

Special Needs kids and families have become a big part of my life over the past 8 or so years. My friend, Candace Pollock and I determined there wasn't much available for the general public to read about special needs planning and all the mystery surrounding special needs trusts. We also each had family members with special needs and we were practicing in the estate planning area so it seemed a perfect fit. Special People, Special Planning became a reality and we've never looked back.

I love working with special needs families. It is one of the few areas of the law where the results are really immediate and you know you've done something to be proud of. I'm pleased to be able to help families create plans for their kids that will endure for years after the parents have gone to make sure their kids are provided for. So important.

Next Friday, August 14, 2009, The Law Offices of Hoyt & Bryan ( will host our 2009 Special Needs Conference at University Presbyterian Church in Orlando, Florida. We are looking forward to a great day of speakers who will address the topics of special needs trusts, trust administration, professional care management, guardianship and pooled trusts. We will also have a number of exhibitors who can share what they can do for special needs families. The cost is $20 to cover lunch and materials. Reservations are required. Hope to see you there - call our office 407 977-8080 for a reservation.
