BALTIMORE, MD (10/25/10) — Parents and guardians of children with developmental disabilities are invited to attend a workshop on trusts, guardianship, and supports needed in the future, presented by James A. List, founding partner of The Law Offices of James A. List, LLC, a Mid-Atlantic law firm which focuses a substantial part of its practice on working with families with developmentally disabled members.

To be presented November 9 from 6 – 9 p.m. at The Arc of Baltimore’s Seton Business Park facility (6151 Metro Drive in Baltimore City), the workshop is part of The Arc’s Family Support Workshop Series. The series is designed to help families and caregivers gain a deeper understanding of various topics regarding children with special needs.

“No matter what age, planning for the future of your child is an important and difficult process,” explains Mr. List. “In this workshop, we will help parents and guardians explore the often complex issues surrounding surrogate decision making, guardianships, trusts, and applying for public benefits.”

Joining Mr. List for the presentation will be social worker Gerrie Stancik-Bender.

In addition to its work with families which have members with developmental disabilities, The Law Offices of James A. List. LLC serves business owners and individuals with real estate, estate planning, asset protection, and trust needs. In the estate planning area, the firm counsels clients in the use of asset protection trusts, special needs trusts, and dynasty trusts; traditional wills and revocable and irrevocable trusts; and powers of attorney and medical directives.

Following the formal presentation, The Arc of Baltimore workshop will feature an opportunity for participants to share or ask questions. A light dinner will be provided, as well as childcare for families unable to locate someone to care for their children.
