Conservatorships

Any person having knowledge of the circumstances necessitating the appointment of a conservator may file a petition for the court to appoint a conservator for an adult. The appointment of a conservator is a serious matter because it limits a person’s independence and rights. While a court generally has the authority to appoint a conservator for anyone found to be disabled and in need of assistance, a conservator is not always the right solution for providing assistance to a person in need. In other situations, establishing a conservatorship may be the best way to protect a person in need of assistance from themselves or from others. Courts generally look at all of the relevant facts to determine whether the appointment of a conservator is reasonable and necessary. Whether you have knowledge of circumstances necessitating the appointment of a conservator for a family member or friend, or whether you simply need advice about whether a conservatorship is necessary, we can provide you with guidance and legal services to accomplish your goals.
