Guardianship

Ensures that an individual’s rights are properly protected when they may not be able to protect themselves.

Guardianship insures that an individual’s rights are properly protected when they may not be able to protect themselves.

We are retained as petitioning counsel, counsel appointed by the court to represent the alleged disabled persons, as/or the guardian of property appointed by the court.

Guardian of Person

A Guardian of Person appointment can ensure that an individual’s rights are properly protected when they may not be able to protect themselves.

Guardian of Property

Guardianships can also include protection of a person’s income and assets through the appointment of a Guardian of Property.

Guardianships can occur when people fail to plan for disability which then occurs. Maryland has a vested interest in protecting its citizens and what they own.

  • We are retained as petitioning counsel, counsel appointed by the court to represent the alleged disabled persons, and/or the guardian of property appointed by the court.
  • We also continue representation outside of court by assisting appointed Guardians when requested by the respective clients.

Guardianships are formal court proceedings.

The State Court system mandates the protection of citizens who, because of their age or a disability, cannot personally do so. Sufficient evidence must be presented to warrant State’s intervention in such a case.

In situations concerning adults, the use of properly drafted estate planning documents called Advanced Health Care Directives and Powers of Attorney will usually prevent court intervention and the necessity to appoint guardians.
