Guardianships for the Elderly & Minors

Within hundreds of contested guardianship matters, representing both guardians and wards, we are experienced. We have often been appointed by guardianship courts to serve as attorneys for the guardian or attorneys for the alleged incapacitated person.

In most circumstances, Florida Law requires the guardianship court to consider alternatives to the imposition of a guardianship including the use of trusts, durable power of attorney, health care surrogates, living wills, and other similar instruments.

Our attorneys are experienced in planning for incapacity and drafting documents designed to avoid or minimize guardianship litigation later in life.
