Guardianships

When an adult or minor is incapable of making key life decisions for themselves due to physical or mental impairment, a guardianship may be established by court order. A formal hearing before a judge is required to establish a guardianship. The guardian is granted the power to make key life decisions, but they do not have the power to make key financial decisions.

Conservatorships

A conservatorship is also established by court order. A conservatorship is established when a person is unable to make key financial decisions due to an illness or accident, causing incapacity.

A conservator is granted the right to make financial decisions, including investment and spending decisions. Our attorneys assist clients in establishing conservatorships and annual accounting requirements.
