Arlington Guardianship Lawyer

Guardians and conservators can be appointed by a circuit court to act for a person who is deemed incapacitated — someone who cannot make his or her own decisions without assistance. A guardian can be given authority that is broad or that is limited to certain aspects of an incapacitated person's life, depending on the seriousness of his or her condition. A conservator is appointed to look after the financial decisions of an incapacitated person, and he or she can also be given different degrees of authority by a court.

Guardianships and conservatorships are generally meant to protect vulnerable individuals — whether they are elderly, young or disabled — from physical or emotional harm, financial exploitation and other problems. In some cases, families are divided or confused regarding whether a guardianship or conservatorship will be the best way to protect a vulnerable person's interests.

Advocacy And Representation In Guardianship And Conservatorship Matters

If you have a loved one who may be in need of the protection afforded by a guardianship or conservatorship, we can advise and represent you. Conversely, if you or someone you know is the subject of a guardianship or conservatorship that you believe is inappropriate, we can help.

At the law firm of Gene Robinson Law, PLC, we provide advocacy and representation in a wide range of matters related to guardianships and conservatorships for clients in Arlington and the surrounding areas:

  • We represent family members in establishing guardianship or conservatorship of a loved one.
  • We defend people who are the subjects of guardianship cases.
  • We serve as a permanent guardian or conservator for persons with Alzheimer's, dementia and other conditions that have compromised their safety.
  • We serve as guardian ad litem, a neutral lawyer appointed by a judge to represent the interests of an incapacitated person.

We offer our clients extensive experience on multiple sides of guardianship and conservatorship matters. We are frequently appointed by various circuit courts to investigate cases and recommend to these courts whether a guardianship is necessary, and if it is, which people will serve in that capacity. We can leverage our experience to assist you and your family.
