And Power Of Attorney Petitioning Assistance
In certain unfortunate cases, an adult loses (or never had) the capacity to manage his or her own daily affairs and make decisions affecting his or her own assets and life situation. In cases such as these, a court is often asked to establish a legal guardianship or power of attorney, giving another individual the legal authority to make and implement financial, legal, medical and other important decisions affecting the life and well-being of the incapacitated person.
If you or a loved one has become incapacitated by a physical disability or cognitive impairment and require legal guardianship, Offit Kurman Attorneys at Law Guardianship team offers a full range of legal services to assist you.
Our team of experienced guardianship attorneys performs petition filing services in order to have a person appointed as the legal guardian of an incapacitated person for general or for specific purposes and for limited or indefinite duration, if necessary. In appropriate cases, we also represent you or your family members in petition contesting for petitions filed in a legal guardianship proceeding. Because we recognize that the time and expense associated with a court proceeding are not always warranted, we are also available to provide less restrictive forms of assistance to an incapacitated person and his/her family, when appropriate.
The Offit Kurman Attorneys at Law Guardianships team have addressed numerous unique situations for its clients, such as assisting the families of:
- An elderly parent who has refused to accept appropriate medical care at home
- An incapacitated accident victim being financially exploited by his caretaker
- A daughter with a developmental disability who was unable to manage a sizeable inheritance left to her
Whatever the situation may be, Offit Kurman Attorneys At Law has the skills, resources, and experience to help in your specific situation.
