A guardianship is a legal tool for protecting a minor or an incapacitated person

When a loved one can no longer handle their personal care or affairs related to their finances and property, the court will appoint someone who has the legal authority to make decisions for the affected person. A guardian is responsible for decisions about care provisions and living arrangements of the ward.

We guide you through each step of the process

A guardian of the estate is charged with the ward’s property and financial affairs.  In many cases, the ward may be suffering from dementia or other incapacitating brain diseases, but in some cases, a guardian can be appointed for a child who reaches the age of 18 but cannot make their own decisions. We will help you through this process regardless of your unique situation.

 

“Knowing nothing about the legal side of elder care I reached out to them and everything was handled quickly and professionally. Joe and Dawn took time to meet with me in person to go over every question and option. During the time of this pandemic they resumed all communications through email, phone and zoom calls to keep things moving throughout the entire process. They have made this transition easier for me now as well as knowing they will be there when I need them in the future. THANK YOU BOTH!”
