A guardianship attorney specializes in legal situations where a guardian is needed. A guardian is a person who is legally responsible for ensuring the well-being of another person who is incapable of taking care of themselves. These situations typically involve minors, elderly individuals, or persons with disabilities who are unable to make decisions on their own due to physical or mental limitations. The attorney’s role can take on many forms depending on the specific circumstances.

WHEN IS GUARDIANSHIP ESSENTIAL?
Guardianships establish a legal relationship where a guardian is appointed to make important financial and/or personal decisions for another individual who is legally unable to do so for themselves. The individual may either be a minor child whose parents have passed away or have become incapacitated, or an adult who has become incapacitated or disabled and are unable to care for themselves. Establishing a guardianship may be appropriate when:
- Someone is no longer able to make or communicate appropriate decisions for themselves and/or property. Whether they are failing to pay bills, are losing money or tack of their accounts, forgetting their appointments, mishandle medication, are not driving safely, or are neglecting their hygiene. They may also be experiencing unusual paranoid or angry behavior.
- A person has become vulnerable to fraud or influence.
- Minor children receive a financial settlement of $15,000 or more as a result of a claim for wrongful death, property damage, or personal injury.
- A child with a developmental disability has reached the legal age of 18.
