When a person is unable to care for their person or their property, the court can appoint someone to act for their best interests. Guardians and conservators make decisions regarding the personal and financial affairs, respectively, of such incapacitated persons. These proceedings may become emotionally charged when there is a dispute as to whether the person actually lacks such capacity or who is best placed to act in the person’s best interests. If you need help with the appointment of a guardian or conservator, our experienced guardian lawyer at MDE Law Group PLLC can work with you to help determine the best interests of the incapacitated person.
