It's All About Your Peace of Mind.
Jones & Ibrahim, PLLC was established in 1992 to serve people with disabilities and their families. We have particular expertise in intellectual and developmental disability law. Our attorneys practice in King, Snohomish, Pierce, Kitsap, Whatcom and Island counties. Our founding attorney, Larry Jones, and lead attorney, Christy Thompson Ibrahim, both had immediate family members with intellectual disabilities. We understand the challenges that families face: worry about the future, navigating complex systems and advocating for change. Let our experience help you and your family.
Although our entire staff is working at home because of the public health situation, we are still available by phone and email. We are accepting new clients, and we are still processing court paperwork for both new and existing guardianship clients. We are also available to help with planning of wills and special needs trusts. We hope that you are staying well, and look forward to talking with you!
Special Needs Trusts
A good estate plan brings peace of mind, particularly if someone in your family has special needs. Let us help you understand your options and develop a comprehensive plan.
Guardianships can enable family members to make decisions on behalf of those with disabilities. We have expertise in establishing, renewing, transferring and dismissing guardianships. Learn whether a guardianship is the right step for your family, or whether another alternative might work better.
Special needs trusts allow people with disabilities to stay on public benefits like SSI and Medicaid. They can be set up to exist now or after you pass away, and they can be funded with your assets or the person with the disability's own money. Many of our clients choose to serve as trustees for their family members.
When a loved one passes away we can assist with probate and with closing guardianships and trusts. We will make the process smooth and efficient, and we will walk you through each step.
We assist families in initial eligibility hearings for SSI and SSDI. Our expertise is with claims involving intellectual and developmental disabilities or mental health issues. We also help our clients navigate the maze of systems and benefits.
Bring your child's IEP or 504 plan in for a consultation. We will help you find proposals and solutions to improve your child's school experience.
