Guardianship/Comservatorship Print E-mail

Hughes & Bentzen's attorneys regularly advise and counsel guardians and conservators in the discharge of their fiduciary obligations. We also serve as fiduciaries, and our many years of experience provide us with the competence to thoroughly protect our clients.

In estate planning, our attorneys take care to recommend proactive measures during the designed to avoid complications that could arise in the future. Such steps include creating durable powers of attorney, living wills and health care proxies, and revocable "living" trusts, all designed to minimize possible future probate court involvement. Other potential courses of action include obtaining a guardianship or conservatorship in a court proceeding, obtaining court authority to take estate planning steps on behalf of an incapacitated person, and, in extreme circumstances, obtaining commitment and extraordinary medical treatment authority from the court.
