Guardianships may be required

to protect adults from themselves and others.

Guardianships have been around since ancient Greece to protect adults from themselves and others. We represent family members, petitioners, proposed guardians, appointed guardians, and any party to a guardianship. Flaccus Law also represents persons who are alleged to be incapacitated in all phases of a guardianship proceeding, from initial hearings to jury trial.

In numerous cases since 1995, the Superior Court has appointed Karl as a guardian ad litem (GAL) to advise the judge or jury as to the need for a guardianship – or lack of need – and the reliability and suitability of a proposed guardian, in the best interests of the alleged incapacitated person.

Guardianships can be expensive and difficult for all parties involved. Powers of attorney and trusts, when used correctly, may safeguard a person from ever needing a guardianship.
