Experience Handling Landmark Cases
Firm founder Anthony R. Mignanelli successfully litigated the landmark special needs planning case of Chenot v. Bordeleau. In that case, the Rhode Island Supreme Court decided that the benefits held for individuals with intellectual disabilities from discretionary trusts could not be counted as part of their resources in determining eligibility for government benefits. This case had a profound impact on special needs planning, as it established legal principles that were reflected in amendments to Social Security laws in 1992 and 1993.
Attorney Mignanelli has also prevailed in a number of other precedent-setting cases involving novel and unresolved areas of estate planning law, including spousal life estates and defective charitable remainder trusts.
