New York Guardianship Attorney

Estate Planning, Guardianships, and Litigation in New York

When a person is unable to manage his/her financial affairs or medical care and has not appointed someone to act on his/her behalf, a guardian may be appointed to manage the person's affairs or medical care. In some cases, a guardian must be appointed to manage an incapacitated person's affairs because another person, whether a family member, caregiver, friend or other individual has taken advantage of the incapacitated person's inability to understand his or her finances. Our law firm has extensive experience handling matters involving estate planning, including guardianship disputes such as Article 81 and Article 17A.

Guardianship applications frequently must be made on an expedited basis in order to preserve or recover the incapacitated person's assets.
