Are You Looking For Help With A Guardianship?

Guardianships can be emotionally tough. It is heart wrenching when terms such as “incompetence” or “lack of mental capacity” are hanging in the air as your loved one ages. Sometimes a loved one’s incapacity is the result of developmental delays and they have always had a caregiver, but their caregiver dies. Other times, incapacity has been a slow process, but the time has come to take away the car keys and make other provisions for ensuring the bills get paid, medical care is steady and your loved one remains safe.

What do you need to take care of your incapacitated loved one who does not have an estate plan? You need an experienced attorney who cares. While your loved one is vulnerable, they still deserve dignity and as much independence as possible. I get that. I know the emotional and legal difficulties of establishing – or not establishing – a guardianship to protect your loved one. Put my experience and compassion in gear as you explore the various options for safe harbor for your loved one.
