Guardianship Litigation

As our loved ones advance in years, there sometimes comes a point where they may be unable to make important decisions for themselves or handle their own affairs. In cases like these, it is often best to have a legal guardian who can look after their affairs to ensure that the loved one's interests are fully protected.

Disputes can sometimes arise, however, when your loved one does not feel that he or she needs a guardian or another family member has issues with the person who is seeking legal guardianship. These are complex and emotionally challenging legal issues, and it is critical that you seek the advice of an experienced lawyer who can help you navigate them.
