Competent individuals contract with us to provide a range of consulting services, including assessing the complexity of a case, analysis of alternatives to guardianship, and assistance in make informed decisions for someone for whom they are responsible.

Do you need to hire an attorney? Can you use self-help forms? Sometimes a matter is much more complex than a lay person first realizes and the probate process can be daunting. Helping you prepare thoroughly for your first meeting with your attorney if you decide to employ one will save time and professional fees.

Should you seek only guardianship or is a conservatorship also necessary? Should you turn conservatorship or trust administration over to a professional? Are you able to meet the qualifications to manage your loved one’s assets?

Family fiduciaries (e.g. agents under power of attorney) can engage in a professional services agreement to assist them in carrying out their responsibilities. These services include compassionate guidance through the ethical, medical, and financial considerations you must weigh in making decisions for someone else. You will have a dedicated advocate who understands the laws of Arizona and best practices related to protection of persons under disability. You will be equipped with the best information available to make the best decision possible for the one you love.

There is no need to go it alone: Taking care of a vulnerable or incapacitated relative is demanding work. Let us put our experience to work for you. Contact us to request an appointment to discuss your particular needs.
