Guardianships & Conservatorships
If proper powers of attorney are not in place for an incapacitated person, a court proceeding may be necessary to appoint a guardian and/or conservator to make medical and financial decisions. Removing a person’s most basic decision-making rights over self and property requires a court hearing. We know the strict procedural requirements for obtaining guardianship and/or conservatorship over minors and incapacitated persons. We navigate you through the court proceeding to get a decision maker appointed as quickly as possible.
Minor children may also need a court-appointed guardian, if their parents are unable to act for them, or a conservator to manage funds from various sources such as personal injury settlements or inheritances.
After appointment, we can continue to assist the guardian and conservator to avoid fiduciary liability and file the appropriate annual reports with the Court.
Our attorneys have handled hundreds of guardianship and conservatorship matters and are prepared to guide you through the process.
