Guardianship is a legal process to protect individuals who are unable to care for their own well-being due to incapacity or disability. A court will appoint a legal guardian to care for an individual who is in need of special protection. Our firm’s Guardianship Administration & Litigation team works closely with clients to ensure that continuing care is provided for individuals who are unable to take care of themselves or their property because of incapacity. This process includes full guardianship of a minor, elderly or incapacitated individual, limited guardianship of an estate, and conservatorships.
We provide advice and representation in the following areas:
- Guardianships for Disabled Children
- Guardianships for Incapacitated Adults
- Voluntary Conservatorships to assist with finances
- Contested Guardianship Proceedings
- Preparation of Special Needs Trusts
- Representation of Minors and Mentally Incapacitated Adults named as parties in lawsuits
Courts have frequently recognized our capabilities and experience and appointed our attorneys as guardians, guardians ad litem, receivers, fiscal agents, conservators and other fiduciaries.
