The attorneys of Hiering, Dupignac, Stanzione, Dunn & Beck, PC have extensive experience helping people with a wide range of estate planning issues, including the establishment of guardianships and conservatorships. A legal guardian is a person who has the legal right and responsibility to make important decisions on behalf of another person. In some cases, advancing age or physical infirmities like dementia or Alzheimer's necessitate the appointment of a guardian.

Parents of physically or mentally challenged children are faced with making decisions regarding their children's care as their own health declines. By appointing a family member or friend to serve as guardian, you help ensure continuity of care and peace of mind.

As a guardian, you may become responsible for handling bank accounts, paying bills, addressing tax concerns, making decisions about medical treatment and dealing with other important issues in your ward's life. Our attorneys understand the legal details of guardianships and will help inform you of your rights and responsibilities.


Many individuals who are able to handle only some aspects of daily living are well-served by the appointment of a conservator. A conservator may manage financial responsibilities and limit the risk of mismanagement or other abuses.
