Raleigh Guardianship Lawyer
Helping Clients Take Care of Loved Ones’ Personal and Financial Affairs
If your spouse, your parent or another loved one is no longer capable of taking care of himself or herself, he or she may need a legal guardian. If the family cannot agree on the choice of a guardian, you need a lawyer with the experience to help you advocate for your position.
At Brady Morton & Cobin, PLLC, we help clients establish guardianships in contested and uncontested matters. Raleigh guardianship attorney Travis Morton, who handles estate litigation at our firm, has built up a powerful record of trial advocacy since entering the practice of law in 1994.
Handling Contested and Uncontested Guardianships in North Carolina
When a person becomes mentally incapacitated (for example, by Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia) or physically incapacitated (for example, by falling into a coma) and has not given anyone a power of attorney, it is generally necessary to establish a legal guardianship.
While some guardianships are just a formality because the whole family agrees on who should be the guardian, other cases can be heavily contested between family members.
We understand how emotional these cases can be. If you retain us to represent you in a contested guardianship matter, we will take the time to understand your concerns and explain your options so you can take the appropriate steps to protect your family member.
