From Our Members…

Amy C. O’Hara, CELA

“The SNA is unquestionably the most valuable organization I have been a part of during my professional career.  The vast knowledge and expertise of our members in all aspects of planning for individuals with disabilities, protecting their benefits and advocating at state and federal levels in all areas of special needs is exceptional.  Being a member of the SNA enables me to better serve my clients and the community in which I practice.”

Amy C. O’Hara, CELA

“The SNA is very important to me because it allows me to serve my clients as if I am part of a national special needs attorney law firm.  If I come across a unique question or situation, I immediately have at my fingers tips the top 150 plus special needs attorneys in the country to help me solve my clients problem. Other special needs associations have open enrollment which means anyone can join as long as they pay their dues.  With the SNA, I am assured that ALL members have a high level of skill and enjoy the highest reputation in the field.  The best of the best!  This high level of expertise throughout the organization and throughout the country makes the SNA invaluable to myself and my clients.”

“The Special Needs Alliance is more than just an organization to me; it’s a lifeline of shared purpose and professional compassion. As an attorney, it’s where I’ve found my tribe—a community of dedicated professionals who have committed their careers to representing families and loved ones with disabilities. Beyond its legal expertise, the SNA’s commitment to legislative advocacy at the national, state and local level, remind me daily why I’ve chosen this path. I could not be prouder to be a Member of this organization.”

Tara Anne Pleat, Esq.

“The Special Needs Alliance is one of the most fulfilling professional organizations to which I belong.  Our attorney members are brilliant legal minds, but more importantly, our members care deeply about the disability community and improving the lives of our clients and their families.  My membership in the SNA makes me a better advocate, a better attorney, and a better member of my community.  I’m so honored to be a part of this wonderful organization.”
