We Handle Conservatorships

A conservatorship is a legal mechanism that is designed to protect individuals who are no longer able to care for themselves as a result of an accident or illness. Conservatorships may be created for minors with mental health disorders or elderly people that are suffering from Alzheimer's disease or other conditions that limit their ability to handle finances and daily life affairs.

Our firm is pleased to assist clients who are seeking to appoint a conservator or oppose a conservator. These matters can be very complex and highly contested. Our experienced attorneys handle conservator appointment and disputes with a high degree of competence and care.
