Minor children without a guardian, a special needs child, a disabled or incapacitated adult, or an elderly parent suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia are just a few of the situations that may necessitate a guardianship. The firm can seek a guardianship appointment for a qualified person and help facilitate the ongoing guardianship matter once established.

  • Guardian of the Person – The guardian is a family member or other interested person seeking appointment by the court through the guardianship petition. Once appointed, the guardian is responsible for the physical care, control, medical attention, protection and all the basic needs of the disabled or incapacitated person.
  • Guardian of the Estate – The guardian is responsible for managing the assets and financial affairs of the disabled or incapacitated person’s estate.

If there are multiple people seeking the guardianship appointment, the firm can help resolve the contested matter with the protected person’s best interest in mind.
