Guardians are appointed by the court to make personal decisions for a protected person. Conservators are appointed by the court to make financial decisions for a protected person. There are temporary and permanent guardianships and conservatorships. These are called “protective proceedings.” A protected person may have a guardian and conservator appointed for them or they may only have one. An individual may be a “protected person” because he or she is (for example) a minor, or has a disabling physical or mental issue. We represent people seeking to be appointed guardian or conservator for another, and people who oppose the appointment of a guardian/conservator. If you have concerns about protective proceedings or if you need help in the administration of a protective proceeding, contact us to set up a time to discuss your options. Note that if you seek a guardian/conservator for another, you are not required to be the guardian/conservator.
