Guardianships and Conservatorships

Good, Bucy, Elson & Drescher, attorneys at law

A guardianship gives a person the legal authority to care for and make a range of decisions for another person, while a conservatorship gives a person the legal authority to manage a person’s finances.

Courts refer to this as a “protective proceeding” which can be an invaluable tool for making sure that a loved one – whether a young child or an older adult – is properly cared for. We can assist you with guardianship and conservatorship proceedings.

At Good, Bucy & Elson we help you understand the complexities of your situation and offer guidance that protects the interests of your loved ones.

Elderly adults or incapacitated adults may require another person to manage their personal safety, their finances or both. Our office can assist you in appointing the appropriate person. Many times both a guardianship and a conservatorship will be appropriate for the same person.

If you are worried about a loved one and believe that a guardianship or conservatorship may be appropriate, please contact the law office of Good, Bucy & Elson and schedule an appointment to discuss your concerns.
