When individuals lose the mental or physical capacity to manage their financial and personal affairs, legal help is possible. Guardianships are designed to protect vulnerable individuals who may have gradually started to decline or suddenly lost their mental capacity from a personal injury accident or a serious illness.

Our law firm's guardianship attorneys tailor their approach based on the unique set of facts in each case. We have a strong background helping families obtain court-appointed guardianships for a variety of situations, including:
Obtaining legal guardianships can be highly complicated. Our law firm's elder law attorneys offer extensive experience helping clients take the right steps to protect vulnerable individuals. Guardianships can be established after doctors conclude someone is incapacitated or unable to manage their personal and financial affairs. Our legal team has extensive experience explaining to judges why establishing a guardianship is a necessary step. We also seek to demonstrate why our client would be well-suited to act as the legal guardian.
In some circumstances, a temporary guardianship can be appointed within a few hours or days based on an emergency situation. We know the right steps to take in pursuing a permanent guardianship before a temporary appointment ends. Once a guardianship is established, we are available to ensure guardians follow proper legal procedures.
We are committed to guiding clients through the guardianship process. Contact our law firm today to schedule a consultation Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Our firm's attorneys are also available to meet with clients in the evening, weekends and off-site by appointment.
