A parent or other loved one may suffer from Alzheimer’s Dementia, another form of dementia, or another medical condition that makes that person unable to take care of his/her own physical health or manage his/her financial affairs.
In such a condition, this individual is particularly vulnerable to being taken advantage of by others, and they may need to be protected by the appointment of a guardian.
We regularly advise clients as to whether a guardianship is appropriate. If a guardianship is determined to be necessary, we will assist clients through all aspects of the guardianship proceeding. We also assist in the creation of guardianships for a minor who has become an adult and may the need the protection of a guardianship.
We also assist clients with efforts to disqualify a potential guardian and file suits to remove a guardian who has engaged in wrongdoing.
We also file suits against agents under financial powers of attorney who may have engaged in wrongdoing or exploitation of the principal who may be in need of a guardianship.
