I am a divorce and family law attorney, and I help families obtain guardianship of their incapacitated loved ones. I work hard to help my client's obtain their goals and protect their children from the ill effects of divorce and confrontation. Outside of work, I spend a lot of time with my son and my beautiful wife. I also love to read, cook, hike, travel, and weightlift.

When a person is too young to make decisions or is incapacitated and can no longer care for their own interests, guardian law allows the court to appoint someone to make legal and welfare decisions for them. A legal guardian may be appointed as a limited decision-maker or an all-purpose decision-maker. For example, children whose parents are divorcing often have limited legal guardians help decide custody issues. Nursing home residents may need a general legal guardian to make all their welfare decisions for them. Guardianship lawyers advise you about the appropriate legal guardianship for your particular circumstances. They also help with guardianship forms and other legal paperwork, and represent the guardian once one is appointed.
