Attorney Annette Hines Saved Our Family In A Time of Crisis

I was a mother going through a difficult divorce with no knowledge of special needs trusts, family, or disability law when I met attorney Annette Hines.

Ms. Hines not only made the process of completing a Living Trust and Special Needs Trust as painless as it could be, but showed great compassion for our family during the most difficult of times. She is a consummate professional who is at once well-informed and highly-educated on all issues of law relating to special needs trusts, wills, families and medical issues. She was able to work with my divorce attorney and my ex-husband's attorney, and also handle the matters of interstate travel and residence of my sick child.

Annette Hines created a comprehensively detailed and custom-fit trust that will protect my son whether I am present or not.

I remain grateful, and I am very impressed by Ms Hines. I highly recommend her as an attorney, speaker, and family/special needs/disability law expert.

Legal planning for a special needs child

From the moment I met Ms Hines I felt very comfortable. I knew she got it. She explained everything to me about obtaining guardianship for my child. She kept in contact with me over the process that took six months. She was accessable for any questions that I might have. I would highly recommend her.

Annette can fix it!

I am so glad that I reached out to Annette when previous advice I had received just didn't seem right. I inherited a "problem" trust and Annette immediately grasped the issues and how to fix them. Annette successfully got the trust reformed with minimal stress and hassle and obtained the best possible outcome for our family. She has consistently been a calm, gentle and rational guiding force in the midst of an oftentimes emotional situation. I will continue to rely on Annette's good advice regarding the management of this trust and would highly recommend her services!
