‘A Bright Future’ PWS Conference to highlight Financial Planning with Fred Misilo

May 15, 2019

Parents and guardians of individuals with special needs and Prader-Willi syndrome face similar challenges such as what are the levels of guardianship; what to do when you can no longer care for your child or loved one; and how to financially set up your loved one for success. Fred Misilo of Fletcher Tilton, Attorneys at Law, will discuss this topic at our upcoming PWS conference on June 1st in Glastonbury, Connecticut. Sometimes these are the hardest and most important questions to ask and answer. As Fred says, “From special needs trusts to DDS, it is never too early to start planning.” He will also be available after sessions end to discuss individual family situations and appropriate next steps.
