Listings for Legal Services / Guardianship

Legal Services

Numerous attorneys, community resources, and firms offer access to legal services to help you or your loved one through a variety of situations. Low- and reduced-cost legal services may also be available for financially eligible persons. Attorneys work with people to provide legal guidance and offer solutions. If you choose to contact an attorney regarding legal issues, please do not email personally identifiable information to the attorney before speaking with him or her and confirming that the information will remain confidential.

Guardianship

Guardianship is a legal process in which the court determines that an individual is not capable of making decisions for themselves and needs protection. Guardianship protects against self-abuse. Some reasons for becoming a guardian may be that the older adult has issues providing for their basic needs like food and shelter, making decisions about their medical treatments, or has a cognitive issue that leads to unsafe decision making.

description
Our firm advises families at all levels of wealth regarding passing whatever it is they cherish to the next generation and beyond. Likewise, we help clients assert their rights concerning estates and trusts and advocate for them in many different roles. For example, we guide executors in their duties and challenges. We help clients resolve disputes over wills and other estate matters.
The firm’s structure remains unusual among law firms. In the planning arena, we help clients with traditional estate planning needs, creating wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and planning regarding benefits and taxes.
The firm also serves as a “fiduciary.” A “fiduciary” is typically a person in a position of trust, one who is legally empowered to make decisions for other persons. In our case, the firm collectively serves clients as trustees, agents under a power of attorney, guardian, conservator, and personal representative, making decisions in their best interests when they cannot, or carrying out their final wishes.
The firm is well-suited to advise and assist clients facing the realities of aging or disabilities or recovering from injuries resulting from accidents or medical malpractice.
