A “guardian” is an individual appointed by a court to manage personal matters on behalf of a minor or an incapacitated adult. A “conservator” is appointed to manage financial matters. A guardian or a conservator may be needed for a number of reasons.
For example, a conservator may be needed to receive and administer an insurance payment made to a minor. A guardian may be needed to manage the personal affairs of an adult suffering from dementia.
We represent individuals in all aspects of protective proceedings, including proceedings to establish, administer, or contest a guardianship or conservatorship.
