The experienced guardianship and conservatorship attorneys of Kirtland & Seal, L.L.C., offer knowledgeable, compassionate legal representation to clients whose loved ones are losing mental capacity because of an injury, dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Michael Kirtland and Catherine Seal use their combined 40 years of experience with elder law issues to protect your interests, petitioning the probate court for the authority needed to protect them.
This process can be exceedingly complex, legally and procedurally. But once the conservatorship and guardianship has been established, we will provide ongoing guidance regarding your obligations and duties.
A conservatorship calls for court-appointed authority over the relative’s business and financial affairs. In a guardianship, court-appointed authority is established for the day-to-day welfare of a person, including medical treatment, housing and general safety.
If you are an older adult, it can be difficult to watch your rights and freedoms slip away just because your children are worried about you. At Kirtland & Seal, L.L.C., we will act in your best interests, to modify the scope of authority granted to a guardian or conservator, or oppose the interference of a guardian or conservator for an indefinite period.
Is the need for an agreement about a conservatorship and guardianship causing a division within your family? Through mediation and litigation, we can handle disputes over who should be appointed, the scope of that person’s authority and whether a guardian or conservator should be appointed at all.
