We also have the expertise to act on your behalf if you believe someone who has been appointed as a guardian or trustee is not fulfilling their duties or is taking advantage of the person they have been appointed to take care of. We can assist you in seeking to have a new guardian or trustee appointed or help the individual take the required steps to regain their legal capacity. We know how difficult these matters are and stand ready to assist you to ensure they are handled with care and respect in a timely manner.
