  • Elder Law & Adult Guardian / Conservatorship Matters

    There are times when we must formalize the legal relationships we have with family members or other people we care for every day. We may all recognize that is a truly special and caring relationship to have another person place trust in caring for an elder or adult individual. These types of legal situations enable seniors and adults with various levels of ability to participate in activities and other aspects of community life, knowing they have legal support and guidance when it is needed most.

    General elder law issues handled by the law office of Kirby, Gilbert & Ashley include:

    • Advice / Counseling / Advocacy on Elder Rights, Tax Issues & Discrimination
    • Consumer Protection
    • Disability/Medical Care
    • End-of-Life Planning

    • Guardianships
      (including fiduciary/administration)
    • Landlord / Tenant Needs
    • Medical Care Directives, Declarations & Powers of Attorney
    • Medicare/Medicaid planning

    • Powers of Attorney
    • Protection Against Abuse, Neglect & Fraud
    • Real Estate/Mortgage Assistance
    • Retirement Planning
    • Social Security Benefits
    • Trusts
    • Wills

    Adult guardianship or conservatorship matters may include issues of a personal or fiduciary nature. For those adults who are deemed incompetent or who have medical or mental matters that need someone who operate in a personal or financial capacity, the law provides for appointment of a personal guardian, fiscal conservator, or someone who acts in both capacities.

    Each situation is tailored to the needs of the individual, and arrangements may be modified as needs change. It can be a relief to other family members to know that loved ones or neighbors are cared for and have official arrangements in place. Give Kirby, Gilbert & Ashley, L.C., a call today to find out more about our elder law and adult guardian services.
