Conservatorship of Jane Doe

Joseph Michael Pankowski Jr

Practice Area:Elder Law

Outcome:A contented client whose son is now managing her health care and financial needs.

Description:A client (whose name has been changed for privacy purposes) was having trouble remembering things. She was at risk of hurting herself and acknowledged that she could be taken advantage of financially. Working with the client and her family members, we were able to have her sign an Application for a Voluntary Conservatorship in favor of her son. Judge Hopper, of the Greenwich Probate Court, approved the petition. She now has her own room in an assisted care facility, with no concerns about her safety or financial well-being.
