A legal guardian is a person who is legally designated to make decisions on behalf of a child or
incapacitated adult. The process of applying for legal guardian status can be complicated and is not to
be taken lightly. But it is often the best way to help someone who can no longer help themselves.
We offer competent and compassionate representation in the guardianship process from start to

We know the emotional stresses of the guardianship process. As attorneys, we are often called on by
our local probate courts to become guardians for incapacitated adults who have no responsible
friends or family to help them. Our clients get to tap our extensive, personal experience in this area.
Occasionally, guardianships become contested when family members fight each other for “control” of
an adult’s affairs and finances. Or sometimes, a guardian begins to abuse their power (or is wrongly
accused of this). We have helped our clients fight through every type of conflict in this area. Many
guardianship lawyers do not have litigation experience and many litigators do not have guardianship
experience. We pride ourselves on having both.
