Whether it’s medical, social, financial or legal, our team is here to support you and your family

If an individual is legally incapacitated, has no advance directives, and is non-compliant with the necessary assistance to provide for their well-being, then guardianship may be the only alternative to keep him or her safe.  

Guardians step in when:

Families disagree

When there are no family members to assist with health, financial or personal matters

Property and assets must be protected and managed

The individual is vulnerable for exploitation


Provision with court authority, of medical, personal and/or financial decision making on behalf of an incapacitated individual.

Guardianship Reports

Preparation of annual guardianship reports include: initial verified inventory, initial plans, annual accountings and annual plans.

Trusteeship/Special Needs Trusts

Management of funds and/or property held by one person (the trustee) for the benefit of another (the beneficiary). A special needs trust allows the beneficiary to maintain eligibility for public support and receive other federal or state benefits.

Representative/Protective Payee-ship

We accept delegation by the Social Security Administration, Veterans Administration or other government agency to receive the income of a person for bill paying and financial management.

Standby Services

We offer to become standby guardians, powers of attorney, health care surrogates or make comparable arrangements with competent adults (or family members of a vulnerable adult) in which we are named for future planning purposes.
