Westborough Guardianship Lawyers

When someone lacks the decision-making capacity to handle his or her own affairs, it may become necessary for family members to step in and take charge of the situation. When a power of attorney has not been created, this often means pursuing a guardianship or conservatorship.

At Cohen Law Services, we bring more than 20 years of experience to these cases and provide our clients with personalized service focused on helping them protect the well-being of their loved ones.

Guardianships

Guardianships can be sought to obtain legal custody or decision-making authority for another person. The person with custody is known as a legal guardian. Guardianships are often sought in situations where an elderly person is physically incapacitated or lacking the mental capacity to make decisions about his or her health care or finances. Our lawyers have tremendous experience helping clients in Massachusetts pursue guardianships, including those involving minors, the disabled and the elderly.

Westborough Conservatorship Attorneys

When a person is incapable of taking proper care of his or herself due to disability or age, the court can step in to create a conservatorship. This will provide the appointed conservator with legal responsibilities over the party who is subject to the conservatorship. Responsibilities will include the power to make decisions about the person's finances and estate.

This is a complex are of the law, and these cases often involve families going through emotional turmoil as they face difficult decisions about a loved one. Our skilled attorneys can explain your rights and work to protect your interests in these delicate matters.
