Protect Your Loved Ones, Establish a Guardianship
The primary goal of a guardianship is to provide protections for an individual who is incapacitated and to preserve the assets of an incapacitated loved one. Guardians have legal obligations to the incapacitated person that include fiduciary duties. Many of these obligations are complex and have very particular formal requirements which are easily missed or misunderstood. Our trusted guardianship lawyers will provide you with peace of mind that you are in compliance with the guardianship laws and that you avoid making errors that could cause you to breach your fiduciary duties. Furthermore, in the event you are accused of violating the law or breaching your fiduciary obligations, our attorneys at Rotolo, Bozanian & Yi, LLC can provide a comprehensive, aggressive defense aimed at protecting your guardianship.
Protect Your Loved Ones, Against Guardianship and Fiduciary Abuse or Neglect
When someone else has been appointed to serve in the capacity of guardian on behalf of an incapacitated person, as attorney-in-fact pursuant to a power of attorney, as Executor of a Will, or as trustee of a trust, that person is vested with certain fiduciary powers and responsibilities. While those powers and responsibilities can be very broad, they also carry very specific obligations, such as taking specific steps to safeguard assets, as well as generating and providing certain financial reports to the Court and other interested parties. These obligations are generally intended to prevent abuse or neglect by the individual who has been appointed to a position of authority on behalf of an incapacitated person. There unfortunately may come a time that you question the true motives and intentions of someone appointed to a position of trust and authority and that’s when you need an honest, aggressive, and capable attorney to step in. The experienced Estate and Guardianship lawyers at Rotolo, Bozanian & YI LLC know precisely what measures to take in the most cost-effective manner to get to the bottom of any questions you may have regarding the actions of a fiduciary who you fear has gone rogue.
