Estate Planning for Children with Down Syndrome
July 13 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
During his presentation, Paul will discuss how to create a circle of support around families by establishing an estate plan, with a focus on children who rely on state benefits. We will address what makes a revocable trust the most comprehensive estate planning tool, and how trusts differ from other types of estate planning documents. He will also discuss Special Needs Trusts, Guardianships, Powers of Attorney, and ABLE Accounts for children with disabilities.
Paul is a Delaware native who grew up in Wilmington. After working on Capitol Hill for Tom Carper during law school, he joined the law practice established by his father, Kevin O’Brien. Their practice focuses on wills, trusts and estate planning, with an emphasis on planning for families who have children with Special Needs. Paul serves many of our families through his practice.
He is married to Juliana Hayman O’Brien and they have two daughters, Rowan and Claire. When he is not working, Paul enjoys hiking and sailing.
