Guardianship and Conservatorship


Guardianship or conservatorship is a legal proceeding, when an adult can no longer make or communicate safe or sound decisions about his or her person and/or assets. A guardian or conservator can be appointed for anyone in need of assistance in making decisions (an older person, a disabled person, a minor, a person temporarily incapacitated, etc.). We can help a client prepare the appropriate documents and ensure the correct procedures are followed. We advise clients of potential suitable alternatives to assist the person in need assistance, such as durable powers of attorney, appointment of a health care surrogate, and living trusts.
