Queens Guardianship Attorney

The legal system recognizes that some adults, whether due to disease, dementia, mental deterioration, or disability, are unable to protect their own self-interests. In these instances, the courts may appoint a guardian, typically a family member or loved one, to manage the legal and financial affairs of the incapacitated individual. Legal guardians often manage important personal needs such as nursing home placement or hiring aides and financial needs to address outstanding issues, such as Medicaid applications, estate planning, and health care decisions.  The firm routinely represents family members in contested Guardianship litigation as well as routine Guardianship appointments throughout the city.

The process of becoming a legal guardian is complex and requires a court proceeding. Consulting an attorney experienced in guardianship Petitions will help ensure the process is completed as quickly as possible. The accomplished attorneys at Hobson-Williams, P.C. will ensure that you understand the full responsibilities of guardianship and will help you protect the interests of your loved one.

    “I want to take this time to thank Tanya and Keith for their professionalism and their ability to keep me calm during this process. Tanya was very helpful in explaining the whole guardianship process and my next steps. Despite my numerous emails, I never felt ignored or that they were growing weary of me. Even after being granted guardianship when I had an issue with the bank releasing money Tanya stayed calm and found a way to get what I was entitled to. I hope I never need to do this again but if I do, I will definitely come back to Tanya and her team. Thank you Thank you Thank you. Love from Bermuda.”
