Guardians and Conservators
Our lawyers at the Massachusetts law firm, Taylor, Ganson & Perrin, LLP, offer clients sound advice about guardians and conservators. We have been helping people plan ahead since 1935, creating estate plans that include stipulations for conservatorship and guardianship. A complete estate plan does not deal only with money and property. Rather, it includes provisions for caring for minor children and mentally or physically disabled adults. Choosing guardians or conservators in advance provides the testator with the knowledge that their loved ones will be cared for properly.
Our attorneys help people protect their children and their families through guardianship and conservatorship.
Guardianship or conservatorship also provides for care for the testator through adult guardianship, should he or she become disabled or incompetent. Undertaking this type of planning is one of the best gifts an individual can give heirs; it prevents disputes and controversies among family members later on. To learn how we help clients effectively plan for conservatorship and guardianship, contact our Boston office.

We also advise potential or actual wards about their rights under a guardianship or conservatorship. We act as guardians-ad-litem, serving as the eyes and ears of the court as it considers guardianship petitions. We represent potential wards, parents, and guardians in cases around medication issues involving anti-psychotic prescriptions.
Many of our clients are established clients of the firm, but our lawyers welcome inquiries about guardianship issues such as litigation about contested guardianship. For more information about guardianship and custodianship, contact us at Taylor, Ganson & Perrin, LLP.
