Adult Guardianship And Trusteeship Applications

When an adult has difficulty understanding or making decisions, the appointment of an Adult Guardian or Trustee can ensure ongoing support for the represented adult. The need can arise with an aging parent, a relative with a limited understanding of English, a family member who has suffered a brain injury or an adult child with a developmental disability. Whatever circumstance of the represented adult gives rise to need, Bruce & Birklein Law can step in and help.
