NDC Advisors offers full service trust solutions customized for the specific needs of your client. With an in house team made up of attorneys, nurses, social workers and trust administration professionals NDC is able to service any client regardless of location or complexity.

Over the last 10 years the team at NDC has worked with over 2,500 clients in all 50 states. Over this time, we have learned that the traditional offering of trust products and service is simply not sufficient to service the unique and varied needs of plaintiffs.

In order to better serve the needs of our clients we have developed multiple products that can each be customized with a la carte service offerings to create the exact solution your client needs. If a client requires a full service Special Needs Trust to preserve access to public benefits, our professionals are prepared to manage every aspect of our clients financial life to maximize the positive effects of their recovery. However, many clients that are not on public benefits desire assistance with large purchases, bill payment, investment management or budgeting, yet do not want to give up the sense of control that many trusts require. We have developed products that allow the client to choose only the specific services they need.
