Reliable Estate & Disability Planning Through Every Age & Stage of Life

Claudia W. Englisby

Disability Planning Attorney in Hartford

Our Hartford Probate Attorney has personal experience in dealing with Estate Planning matters. Claudia's career took an unexpected turn when her mother-in-law suffered a catastrophic stroke in her early 60s, rendering her quadriplegic without the ability to speak or eat. Claudia was able to assist in emergency planning, and access immediate and long-term supports.

Through this family crisis, Claudia resolved to dedicate her legal mind to assisting individuals with disabilities and elders in planning for life’s major transitions—both expected and unexpected.

In her practice with Disability Planning Partners, Claudia draws upon her vast legal knowledge and her personal experiences to implement a modern approach to disability and estate planning.

In addition to her legal skills, Claudia shares with her clients a deep appreciation and empathy for the daunting daily challenges that family caregivers must face and overcome. In preparing legal plans for clients, her work is often peppered with a family’s personal dynamics, which she welcomes with understanding and support. Claudia helps pave the path to a new normal for the present day and the days ahead.
