Protective Proceedings

When a person cannot manage their own affairs, it may be necessary to ask the court to appoint someone else to manage their personal, healthcare, or financial matters. To help a loved one who needs assistance, you may consider establishing a guardianship, a conservatorship, or another fiduciary relationship.

Because protective proceedings remove a person’s autonony, these matters can raise sensitive issues. However, a guardianship or conservatorship may be necessary to assist someone who cannot make important decisions independently.

At Yturri Rose, LLP, our probate lawyers have extensive experience working with guardians, convervators, and other fiduciaries to protect the best interests of the people they care for.

Sometimes protective proceedings are institute to try to wrongfully gain control of someone else’s financial decisions, healthcare decisions, or property. When this occurs, we represent people who are alleged to be incapacitated.

Regardless of our client, we understand the complex issues protective proceedings can present, and we handle them with sensitivity and understanding.
