Safeguarding the Interests of Your Loved One

Guardianship and conservatorship litigation is necessary when a loved one or someone you know is incapable of taking care of their own medical and financial affairs due to age, chronic drug or alcohol abuse, or other medical conditions. Often times, these types of actions are highly contested as multiple people who have statutory authority may petition for appointment as guardian or conservator at the same time.

Disputes regarding conservatorship and guardianship can also arise as a result of:

  • Mismanagement of a conservatee's assets
  • Poor decisions about a conservatee's health care
  • Elder abuse
  • Validity of powers of attorney
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Financial exploitation
