Brian Andrew Tully Joins Academy of Special Needs Planners

Attorney Brian Andrew Tully, Esq. has announced that he has joined the Academy of Special Needs Planners.

Among the many challenges facing parents of special-needs children is planning for the time when the parents will no longer be around to act as the primary caregivers. The Academy of Special Needs Planners assists attorneys in providing the highest quality service and advice to individuals with special needs and their families. The academy provides attorneys with the most up-to-date information on related legal developments and a forum to exchange best practices.

“I am extremely pleased to be part of this organization,” Mr. Tully said. “The Academy of Special Needs Planners allows me to provide the best guidance for my clients and the clients’ families. This organization will provide the resources I need to help my clients stay informed of any new legal developments.”

A member of the Suffolk County and New York State Bar Associations, Mr. Tully is certified as an elder law attorney by the National Elder Law Foundation and focuses his law practice on life care planning, elder law, estate planning, Medicaid benefits and asset protection. Most recently, he was named to the Board of Directors of the Life Care Planning Law Firms Association. Earlier this year, he received accreditation from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to represent and assist veterans and their spouses in the preparation, presentation and prosecution of claims for benefits, including the Aide and Attendance Pension.

In 2004, he founded the ElderCare Resource Center, Inc. (www.eldercareresourcecenter.info), whose mission is to be the community resource for support, answers and expertise in regard to advance planning and informed decision making about present and future long-term healthcare. The Suffolk Nassau Regional Business Partnership voted the ElderCare Resource Center as Educational Business of the Year in 2005.
