Guardianships are a court-supervised program where a Guardian is appointed to care for a Ward. A Guardian is, in effect, a surrogate decision maker to make decisions for a Ward whose incapacity has rendered them unable to make decisions for themselves. There are two types of Guardians: a Guardian of the Person who cares for the Ward by providing food, shelter, clothing, protection, and medical decisions, and a Guardian of the Estate who cares for the Ward’s property. A Ward can be either an incapacitated person, or a minor (one who is under eighteen).
Our clients include parents of children and special needs children as well as children looking to establish a Guardianship for parents with disabilities.
