“We put off pursuing a special needs trust for our son for years, mainly because we convinced ourselves it would be such a daunting and complicated process. Katie was recommended to us through an organization that services young adults with Autism, so we felt confident that she might understand the journey we’ve been traveling. When we first sat down with Katie, we immediately knew she would be the best person to guide us through what we thought would be an arduous process. The word that best describes our experience is safe. We felt safe with Katie. She provided wise council and many resources to assist in making difficult decisions. All aspects of the process were presented in an organized and systematic way. Katie guided us through the process, which had previously seemed so overwhelming and complicated, in a way that was concise, clear and easy to understand. Most importantly, we trusted that Katie understood our concerns as parents raising a young man with Autism. We walked out of her office feeling confident we had coordinated the best plan for our son’s future, and highly recommend her services to anyone looking for an experienced guide to walk them through the estate planning process.” - S. Family
“We put off establishing a Special Needs Trust for our son, because we were sure it would be very difficult and overwhelming. However, Katie guided us all the way through it in a professional and caring manner. She was also very helpful creating our Legal Will. We thank you, Katie, and highly recommend your expertise and legal knowledge.” - Ken and Kathy D.
“Katie Clancy was highly recommended to us by our son’s SSI Appeals Attorney. We knew it was critical for us and for our family to update our 14 year old Estate Planning and Special Needs Trust but we didn’t have the energy or appetite to go through the complicated process again. Working with Katie Clancy made all the difference. She helped us understand current government benefits that were available for our son, provided invaluable suggestions and revisions that addressed life planning needs and guidance on how to write a Letter of Intent. The whole process of updating our Estate Planning and Special Needs Trust has tremendously relieved our stress and anxiety over our son’s and daughter’s financial future and well-being.” - G. Family
“Katie is knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We can breathe easier knowing that we have a plan in place so our child with special needs will be properly taken care of when we are gone. Appointments were simple to schedule and she traveled to meet with us at our financial advisor’s office and at our home. I refer all of my fellow moms who have children with special needs to Katie.” - Bill & Lori G.
“Katie Clancy and Clancy & Associates offered my family outstanding service in setting up wills, individual trusts, and a special needs trust for our daughter. Katie has a calm, reassuring demeanor--perfect for this field of law, which touches on such emotionally fraught areas. She took the time to fully understand each family member's desired outcomes and offered us many options and insights into how to effectively assure they would be met. I highly recommend her firm!” -Patrice T.
“Katie worked with us to create a special needs trust for our son. She was a wealth of information that went far beyond the trust work she provided. Katie provided us with thoughtful counsel and was incredibly generous with her considerable resources and network to help us understand what options are available for our son’s future. I highly recommend Katie and encourage other people who have this need to use her services.” - Sue M.
"I am so glad that I consulted with Clancy & Associates to review the options available for my son who has autism. I didn’t realize that he can qualify for several benefits from the government when he turns 18. This is a relief to me and great news for my son. I was very comfortable talking with Katie about our family and my son’s history. She is also a special needs parent, so there is so much I did not have to explain -- she just understood.
I know there is more for me to do, but having Katie as a guide takes a big load
off my shoulders." - Jamie M.
"In her role as attorney representing the trust of a member of my family, Katie Clancy was essentially dropped into the middle of a complex, disordered and sometimes volatile legal situation with the directive to somehow sort it all out – and as quickly as possible.
She has masterfully done so. The deftness with which she got up to speed and handled painstaking legal details, difficult co-trustee relationships, correspondence with financial institutions and tax issues was remarkable. Not only is she fast at assessing the situation and applying her extensive legal know-how, she is also exceptionally responsive and simply a pleasure to work with.
I would highly recommend her to anyone needing an attorney to represent a trust,
or for any legal matter in which she specializes." - Kelly S.
"From the moment of being introduced, Ryan & I felt like we were in excellent hands with you! Building the trusts & wills for our family was definitely uncharted territory, and we had a lot of questions. Your direct, yet attentive approach helped us get through the process seamlessly. And coming to our home twice was more than accommodating, especially for new parents. It really showed your commitment to your clients & made a big difference in our busy schedules, not to mention the timely delivery of all the documentation. Thanks so much for the wonderful & through service! " - Carrie & Ryan
"Working with you has been a pleasure. You handled all of our family's probate issues in a timely manner and kept me updated. Also, because of your hard work, the estate was liquidated and closed in record time (less than 3 months). Not only are you knowledgeable and professional, but kind and caring as well. Look forward to working with you again." - Karen C.
