It can be devastating to see a loved one lose his or her independence. You understand, however, when your loved one cannot make important health, financial, or other decisions on his or her own behalf, that the best step may be to seek appointment of a legal guardian. As a skilled and competent Utah guardianship lawyer, I take the time to fully explain a guardian’s role and have an in-depth discussion of the responsibilities associated with guardianships. Legally speaking, a guardian is a court-appointed person responsible for making health care, educational, legal, and sometimes financial decisions on behalf of a vulnerable adult or child. I can provide informed counsel focused on helping you provide care and protection for your loved one while avoiding disputes with other family members.
