Shreveport, LA area attorney Joe Gilsoul of the law firm of Gilsoul & Associates, LLC has been selected as the newest member of the Special Needs Alliance.
Established in 2002, the Special Needs Alliance (SNA) is a national, non-profit collective of many of America’s leading disability and public benefits attorneys. Currently in 48 states, SNA members work to secure Medicaid and other public benefits for individuals with special needs. The SNA’s mission is to help enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities by coordinating private resources with public benefit programs through special needs planning and trusts.
Membership to SNA is selective and competitive and is extended by invitation only. Attorneys must meet specific criteria to ensure that SNA clients are served with the utmost professionalism and compassion. Criteria include a minimum number of years of practice in the special needs area and proven involvement with disability advocacy organizations. Many SNA attorneys have personal experience with individuals with special needs—either as a sibling or parent.
Gilsoul joins a select group of attorneys who comprise the SNA—these members serve on the boards of national, state and local organizations serving the disability community. They are current, former or incoming executive members of prominent legal and advocacy organizations such as the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, the American Bar Association, the American College of Trusts and Estates Counsel and the bar associations of their respective states.
