“We are proud to be a supporter of Autism Speaks and to help their efforts to fund autism research and raise awareness,” said New Jersey estate planning attorney Susan Green, who also practices estate administration and elder law at the firm.

Autism spectrum disorders affect about three million people in the United States, and an estimated 1 in 110 children are diagnosed each year. Autism affects more children than juvenile diabetes, pediatric AIDS, and childhood cancer, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports. Children with autism have a right to a free, appropriate education and can receive special education and intervention services through the IDEA Act.

Members of Begley Law Group are already gearing up for the 2012 walk in Southern New Jersey on Saturday, May 19. The event is a family-friendly walk, and many volunteers work hard to raise funds for the cause.

“All of us who take part in the walk, donate money, and speak to others about it want to be a part of the solution to resolve this complex disorder,” said Green. “When every 15 minutes someone learns that they have autism, we need to do everything we can to help those in need.”

  • THE IMPACT OF FUNDRAISERS ON BENEFICIARIES WITH DISABILITIES
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA   Crisis and Kindness In times of crisis, people often show just how caring humanity can be. Major humanitarian relief efforts respond to large-scale natural and unnatural disasters. Strangers donate time and money to individuals injured in tragic accidents. Often, the first instinct upon learning that someone is hurt is to give money. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to the donor, this kind and selfless act can have devastating ramifications for the injured individual and his or her family. If the injured individual or a family member is receiving means-tested government benefits, such as SSI or Medicaid, [...]
  • MODIFYING AN IRREVOCABLE TRUST
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA Introduction Frequently, clients have established irrevocable trusts that they would like to modify or terminate. Historically, in New Jersey this has meant that a court order was required.

There are two ways an irrevocable trust can be modified. One through a court order, and the other through consent of the parties using a Non-Judicial Settlement Agreement (NJSA). Court Approval Where court approval is obtained, the process is [...]
